Structural Steel Savings

As the cost of structural steel continues to increase, the impact of reducing the quantity of supports on a projects can offset the cost of the cable ladder system all together.

B-Line series cable ladder systems deliver a lower installed cost.


Lower total install cost solution through reduction of structural steel supports

Eaton’s B-Line series metallic cable ladder systems are designed to provide superior strength to weight ratio while providing a lower total installed cost.

To achieve a lower total installed cost, Eaton’s engineers developed an innovative means to significantly reduce the number of structural steel supports needed in cable ladder installations, without diminishing the load carrying capacity of the system.

In addition, extensive laboratory testing has enabled the Eaton B-Line series cable ladder to exceed the National Electrical Manufacturer’s Association (NEMA) VE-2 support recommendations for cable ladder installations.

When assessing a project for the lowest total installed cost, Eaton recommends focusing on four key design considerations:

  • Longer straight section spans
  • Fitting support locations
  • Vertical adjustable support locations
  • Thermal expansion support locations
