Accles & Shelvoke
specializes in the manufacture and supply of precision engineered
cartridge powered cable spiking guns. The "ACVOKE" Cable Spiker was
developed in 1952 in cooperation with the Central Electricity
Generating Board. The "ACVOKE" Cable Spiker is a cartridge powered
tool which when fired drives a steel spike through high voltage
electricity cables short circuiting the power and making the cable
dead and therefore safe to work on.
