Towing Socks, Slings and Grips
Towing Socks for pipe or towing stockings, also known as Pulling Stockings and Cable Grip are generally used for installing cables and small pipe ducts in HDD applications. They work on the principle 'the harder the pull, the tighter the grip'.
Our Towing Socks are hand woven using high tensile galvanised steel wire, making them reliale and re-usable over and over again.
Their main use is in pulling cables and special sizes are available just for this purpose. A range of standard cable socks are available for common underground cable sizes for single LV and multiple HV cables. Custom sizes can be manufactured on request.
Screw in Towing Heads
Screw-in Towing Head and duct puller is suitable for small diameter pipe and ducts. They are designed to install polyethylene pipes and ducting using a screw-in tapered buttress thread to grip the inside wall of the pipe or duct.
Screw in Towing Heads
The duct puller can be used to install inner ducts inside a larger duct, but they may also be used for directional drilling applications and in combination with multiple duct pullers.
Our screw in Towing Heads are manufactured from high tensile steel and are zink plated for corrosion resistance and durability and as they have no moving parts, they are both reliable and maintenance free.
Bolt on Towing Heads
Our bolt on towing heads are designed to be bolted through a large diameter PE pipes. This is a cost effective alternative to other models where the one off cost of a expanding type duct puller is not warranted. This is a cost effective solution for pipe sizes 300mm and upward.
