A leading manufacturer of wire management products in North America announces the introduction of their patented j-hook Cable Support Extender. The j-hook cable support extender was designed to provide a 12in long support platform, instead of the 2in j-hook support. The longer platform has been proven to reduce cable stress points, strain, sag and heat build-up – all are key factors relating to today’s j-hook installations.
The j-hook cable support extender is a plenum rated j-hook “platform” designed to easily snap into the MonoSystems infinitely linkable, j-hook system called The Hook™. Introduced several years ago, The Hook System allows the patented j-hooks to infinitely link together without the need for additional hardware or time-consuming labor, creating a secure, tiered cable support system for segregation of cabling media into separate pathways to prevent crossover. Unlike other j-hook designs that incorporate a curve shape, The Hook design features a wide, flat base, which greatly reduces cable stress points and pinching. When the H-CSE-12 is mated with the The Hook System, the unit (j-hook + extender) provides an extended 12in long, flat platform that offers greater support while avoiding potential heat build-up. Product applications apply to high-performance communications cabling, security, voice over IP, PoE (Power over Ethernet applications), and fiber optic cabling. The j-hook cable support extender was designed in a grey, UL94 plenum rated material. The grey color closely matches the steel j-hooks so as not to create any confusion, or draw attention to any colors potentially used to identify a specific run.
The j-hook cable support extender was recently introduced at the BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition. “The BICSI show was a huge success for this product introduction. Many conference attendees came up to our booth to see the H-CSE-12 (Cable Support Extender) because they heard about it on the floor of the show or during a CE presentation. The product has already been specified by many system designers”, stated Jordan Handler, President of MonoSystems.
