Original Version

Rule 56.4-D

 

56.4-D.    From Guys or Span Wires

 

(1)    Crossing in Spans: Vertical clearances at points of crossing not less than 18 inches as specified in Table 2, Case 1, Column A and radial clearances of not less than 12 inches shall be maintained between guys or span wires and other guys or span wires which are not attached to the same poles.

 

(2)    Passing and attached to Same Pole: The radial clearance between different guys, different span wires, or different guys and span wires, attached to the same pole shall not be less than 3 inches.

 

(3)    Approximately Parallel and Attached to Same Pole:

 

a)    Overhead guys or Span Wires: Where two or more overhead guys or two or more spans wires are approximately parallel and attached to the same poles, either or both of which poles support supply conductors, such guys or spans wires shall have a vertical separation of at least 1 foot between the points of attachment on the pole, or poles, which support the supply conductors.  In cases where such separation is not practicable, other means to insure the effectiveness of the guy or span wire insulators shall be employed but in no case shall the distance between any guy or span wire be less than 3-inches, measured perpendicularly at the insulator.  This rule shall not prohibit the contact to the same shims and shall not apply to guys or span wires acting in different directions, nor to guys or span wires in which insulators are not required.

 

b)    Anchor Guys: Where two or more guys attached to a pole supporting supply conductors are attached to the same grounded anchor, either directly or through the medium of a stub, they shall be separated at the pole by a vertical distance of at least 1 foot, provided any guy wire shall not be less than 3 inches from the surface of the insulator in any other guy.  In lieu of securing this 3 inch minimum separation by means of the 1 foot minimum separation of guy attachments at the pole, it shall be afforded by separation of attachments at the pole, it shall be afforded by separation of the grounded anchors or by other practicable means which shall insure the minimum clearance of 3 inches.  The provisions of this rule do not apply to guys which act in different directions from the pole or to guys attached to grounded metal structures or to guys which do not require insulators.

(1)    Crossing in Spans: Vertical clearances at points of crossing not less than 18 inches as specified in (Table 2, Case 1, Column A) and radial clearances of not less than 12 inches shall be maintained between guys or span wires and other guys or span wires which are not attached to the same poles.

 

2    Passing and attached to Same Pole: The radial clearance between different guys, different span wires, or different guys and span wires, attached to the same pole shall not be less than 3 inches.

 

3    Approximately Parallel and Attached to Same Pole:

 

a)    Overhead guys or Span Wires: Where two or more overhead guys or two or more spans wires are approximately parallel and attached to the same poles, and either or both of which poles support supply conductors:,

 

1)    such guys or spans wires shall have a vertical separation of at least 1 foot between the points of attachment on the pole, or poles, which support the supply conductors.

 

2)    In cases where such separation is not practicable, other means to insure the effectiveness of the guy or span wire insulators shall be employed but in no case shall the distance between any guy or span wire be less than 3-inches, measured perpendicularly at the insulator. 

 

3)    This rule shall not prohibit the contact to the same shims and shall not apply to guys or span wires acting in different directions, nor to guys or span wires in which insulators are not required.

 

4)    Where two guys are installed in climbing space, also see Rule 54.7ľA3.

 

 

b)    Anchor Guys: Where two or more guys attached to a pole supporting supply conductors are attached to the same grounded anchor, either directly or through the medium of a stub:,

 

1)    they shall be separated at the pole by a vertical distance of at least 1 foot, provided any guy wire shall not be less than 3 inches from the surface of the insulator in any other guy.

 

2)    In lieu of securing this 3 inch minimum separation by means of the 1 foot minimum separation of guy attachments at the pole, it shall be afforded by separation of attachments at the pole, it shall be afforded by separation of the grounded anchors or by other practicable means which shall insure the minimum clearance of 3 inches.

 

3)    The provisions of this rule do not apply to guys which act in different directions from the pole or to guys attached to grounded metal structures or to guys which do not require insulators.

 

4)    Where two guys are installed in climbing space, also see Rule 54.7-A3.
