Pole Retention Sockets use a Sweeping bend option for easier installation

Our Pole Retention Sockets are often used for the installations of poles destined for traffic signals and street lighting. Customers mentioned that sometimes they found it difficult to feed cables through our pole retention socket during installation.

Our customers are our biggest source of inspiration for new products, design improvements and co-development and that goes for our retention socket too. Since we design and manufacture in-house, we are able to adapt and tweak our products as necessary to accommodate the needs of our customers.

The design team tackled the issue by adding some different cable entry options to the design of our retention socket. Adding a sweeping bend plastic connector to feed the cable was the perfect solution. The base plate at the foot of the bend stabilises the socket during installation. The connector is also fully rotatable, adding to the ease the installation process.

Now feeding cables, even steel wired armoured cable (SWA cable), is much easier to do, saving hassle and aggravation during installation on site.

Retention Sockets make it easier to install traffic signal posts or lighting columns. Ritherdon has developed the Atlas Retention Socket to ease installation of poles following a knockdown. Poles are replaced without having to excavate.  Simply remove the damaged pole and install a new pole in minutes.
