  • Patent number: 4458102
    Abstract: A suspension system supports a plurality of high voltage electrical conductors forming part of a transmission line in a predetermined spaced pattern relative to one another. The system includes a rigid compression strut arranged to extend generally horizontally between a pair of spaced primary support points. A flexible tension member is suspended below the compression strut and has its opposing ends connected at said primary support points. When the tension member is loaded, it applies compression forces lengthwise of the strut. An array of insulators is disposed below the flexible tension member for supporting the plurality of electrical conductors in the preselected pattern relative to one another. At least certain of these insulators are connected to the tension member so that the latter bears a portion of the total loading imposed by the conductors.
