How Does CPI Ladder Rack Stack Up? Recent Runway Project in UK Shows How
September 17, 2012
If seeing is believing, there’s a good chance that what you’re about to see speaks volumes about CPI Cable Runway and its ability to adapt to unique data center environments.
Commonly referred to as Ladder Rack, CPI Cable Runway supports backbone and horizontal cables between the point of entry and exit into telecom or equipment rooms and cross-connects on racks and cabinets.
As one of CPI’s most popular and versatile products, Cable Runway is also adept at handling a variety of Category 5e/6/6a and fiber cabling with 132 lb/ft (18.25 kg/m) maximum load with runway supported every 5 feet (1.5 meters).
Durable rectangular steel construction also means even the longest, most dense cabling runs are well supported, while additional radii and bends help maintain cable signal integrity around turns and drops.
Speaking of turns and drops, feast your eyes on these images from a recent runway project in the United Kingdom, spearheaded by CPI Sales Manager in the UK and Ireland, Ben Parker. Note the unique configurations for the multi-tiered runway brackets, which CPI helped suggest for the client, and see how they illustrate how a variety of runway accessories such as radius drops and runway bends help craft the runway into one cohesive unit.
In this second image above, notice where the end of the runway turns to the left using a CPI runway bend to help change direction and re-route the cabling.
Of course, if you're in the UK or Ireland and would like sales assistance, be sure to send Ben Parker a note, and like always, CPI Technical Support is standing by at 800-834-4969 or via email to help configure your next cable pathway project. Get in touch today!
