It is essential that local municipal and road traffic authorities are educated about the benefits of using the Ultra-Lok clamping system, as opposed to the traditional bolt-clamp system, says Banding & Identification Solutions Africa Sales Representative Matthew Campbell. The reason for this is that the traditional system is more costly and time-consuming to install.

Local authorities urged to use Ultra Lok clamping system“Ultra-Lok is far more effective as it provides for a stronger, faster, and more efficient clamping system. Bolt clamps are often cumbersome and difficult to use, especially when a user is on a platform or ladder,” he says. “In addition, bolt clamps only come in pre-set sizes, which means that they are inherently inflexible. However, Ultra-Lok clamps can be adapted according to specific size requirements, thereby saving end users time and money on sourcing custom-fit bolt clamps.”

The Ultra-Lok system from Banding & Identification Solutions Africa is a multi-purpose system that can be used for any band-and-buckle related application. Launched originally in South Africa in 2007 as a high-pressure hose assembly clamping solution, Ultra-Lok has seen its applications expand to encompass water-cooled cabling assemblies, signage erection, and general cable management and theft prevention.

Campbell points out that in Europe in particular, Ultra-Lok is the most popular system for signage erection on motorways. This is an application that presents a major opportunity locally, he concludes.
