Customers Find Unique Ways to Mount Runway on Varying Height Cabinets

February 02, 2010

Ladder Rack on CabinetsNote: Please refer to blog article: Best Way to Mount Cable Runway on Cabinets of Varying Heights for CPI's solution to this challenge.

How can you mount ladder racking on top of different height cabinets? It's a common problem that many in our industry face. Because of the recent trend of migrating under floor cabling to overhead in order to allow optimize airflow and ensure best practice for cable maintenance, more and more customers will experience this dilemma. Recently, we had two customers who came up with two different and very good ideas for solving this issue.

Threaded Ceiling KitRecently, one of our UK Certified Installer Partners (CIP’s), Impact Data Systems, needed to secure ladder racking to the tops of various heights of cabinets. This was something unexpected which happened on site therefore they needed to work quickly and use the materials they had locally available. To solve this issue, what they cleverly did was to use the Threaded Ceiling Kit, P/N 11310-003 but mounted them upside down so that they could attach them to the cabinets rather than the ceiling.

Adjustable Floor Support StandsSimilarly, one of our customers in Italy had the same issue but opted to use the Adjustable Floor Support Stands, P/N 11236-701 to successfully accomplish the same thing.

I thought these were both very clever and easy ways to solve this problem – and could be helpful to other partners out there. Lauren Tucker,  Area Sales Director, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA)
