The Vertical CableCat provides support to vertical-backbone cable and doubles as an installation tool by making cable-pulling jobs easier from the bottom floor up. Its design includes a locking mechanism that opens during the pull and re-engages when the cable is released.
According to the manufacturer, the system offers space savings within telecommunications closets, as well as allowing for future additions of cable supports. The fasteners` rounded edges prevent cable damage, and the galvanized finish prevents corrosion. The support accepts as many as 80 4-pair unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) or 10 25-pair UTP cables.
CableCat supports are available for strut or surface mounting. Kits with 18-inch precut slotted strut sections are also available; the strut-mounted model locks into the strut without tools.
