Cable Vault

Background:

Tom Scannell, an 18-year ironworker member of Local 401 (Philadelphia) and local inventor, had an idea to design a product that could prevent the removal of cable clamps on safety cables. He knew the importance of maintaining the integrity of the perimeter cables on a job site, and the responsibility, man-hours and liability involved with maintaining the perimeter and interior safety cables.

Product:

Cable Vault

Scope:

Enser worked with Tom to re-design the concept and build the prototypes. He realized there was a great potential for the product to prevent incidents involving the alteration of safety cables. The cable vault can be easily slid over safety cables and clamps immediately after using a cable dog, come-along and installing the cable clamps. Once the cable vault covers the safety cable and clamps, it is locked and cannot be removed without a key.

Results:
  • Maintains the integrity of the perimeter cables on a job site

  • Reduced man-hours with maintaining the perimeter and interior safety cables

  • Reduced  liability  with maintaining the perimeter and interior safety cables
