At Talon Products, we are redefining cable restraint.
Talon Products was founded in 2010 by a group of like-minded professionals dedicated to solving complex cable restraint challenges. We’re not just bending metal. Our holistic design philosophy is based on engineering principles that prioritize a shared emphasis on protecting cables and their support systems. We apply these core principles to every aspect of design, testing and manufacturing. The resulting products are changing the way cables are restrained. We are proud to announce these unrelenting efforts resulted in an American-made cable cleat we can all take pride in — the Talon®.
Talon Products delivers that same dedication and standard of care to solving customers’ cable restraint challenges. We’re not just selling cable cleats. We understand that each application is unique and deserves careful evaluation. We collaborate with our customers to understand their site-specific electrical parameters and installation details. Using our proprietary cable force calculation software, we model the short circuit waveform and provide vital information about the electromechanical forces affecting the cables. The results assist customers in selecting the correct cable restraint solution.
In 2014, Talon Products acquired the leading cable restraint distributor in North America and hired every employee. The combined engineering, manufacturing and sales experience benefits customers in the industrial, manufacturing, marine, mining, oil & gas, petrochemical, renewable energy and electrical utility T&D industries. In addition to delivering the right grip on cables, Talon Products also has a grip on technical standards. Talon Products’ president, Charles Darnell belongs to the ANSI US National Committee of the IEC and is the Technical Expert and US Representative on the international cable cleat standard, IEC 61914. In addition to his credentials as a Registered Professional Electrical Engineer, NAFI Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator and NEMA Cable Cleats Product Section Chair, Mr. Darnell provides local and national leadership within IEEE and is active on many cable installation standards.
