What support methods are available?

  • Trapeze Support (Single or Multi-tier)
  • Hanger rod clamps, “J” hangers
  • Center Hung Support
  • Wall Support
  • Underfloor Support
  • Pipe stanchions or other structures

Each of these support methods are preferable in different applications. For instance, trapeze supports may be desired in an application where cables will be pulled through the cable tray. Center hung supports, on the other hand, are generally used when cables will be installed from the side of the cable tray. Center hung supports are especially useful when future cable additions are desired. Wall supports and underfloor supports are useful when ceiling structure is not available or undesired. Outdoor installations are controlled by the structures available to support the cable tray.
