Duckfoot Bend

Intelligent foundation systems for illuminated post installations

The NAL Duckfoot Retention Socket system is a range of fittings designed to secure all types of directly cabled illuminated street furniture enabling easy removal after impact simply with a key and a spanner.

All Retention Sockets are manufactured in cast steel or ductile iron and galvanised. A stainless steel locking mechanism located in the side chamber secures the street furniture in place. The Duckfoot Retention Socket is manufactured with a one way duct bend offering 360 degree swivel and cable entry through the base of the post.
