Reduce Structural Steel

With five key attributes, B-Line cable ladder can help reduce structural steel up to 66%

 

Eaton is helping to decrease cost and engineering complexity by reducing the number of structural steel supports needed for cable ladder systems in heavy industrial environments. Through extensive laboratory testing, Eaton has determined that its metallic cable ladder systems are able to be supported by fewer structural steel supports than currently recommended by NEMA VE-2.

Our engineering expertise and unique product features have allowed us to develop a cable ladder system with industry-leading strength and stability that can help reduce the number of structural steel supports by up to 66 percent without diminishing the load carrying capacity of the system.

Features & Five Key Product Attributes

Five key attributes of Cable Ladder Systems deliver a lower installed cost.

5 Key Product Attributes - Structural Steel Savings
  • I-Beam Side Rail Design – can hold up to 2.3 times more than c-channel rails
  • Application Specific Materials – available in galvanized steel, stainless steel, and marine-grade, copper-free aluminum
  • Splice Plate Designs – maximizes rail engagement and enhances structural integrity of the system
  • Specialty Splices – accommodates thermal expansion while enhancing structural integrity
  • Fitting Design – tangets or 75mm to 100mm maximize system strength
