Focus On Voice/Data, Low Voltage & Security Products
Construction Fastening Systems deals with all of the trades but we have a very strong prescence in the voice/data, security and low voltage trades. We didn’t set out to be there, but customer requests made it clear that there was a need for it. Over the years we have worked with many voice/data contractors to solve their install issues. So whether you are looking for a very basic cable support or a way to mount that support, we likely have what you are looking for. Below you will find some key products for the cabling trades. If you run into a difficult application, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-877-212-2377 or contact us via our contact page. We would be happy to help!
Basic J-Hooks. For years we had requests for j hooks from our customers. Finally one of our suppliers a produced a generic UL listed j hook in the standard sizes. Available in 3/4″, 1-5/16″, 2″ and 4″ sizes. These continue to be one of our best sellers. They are available in a variety of configurations to fit your install. They have a great price point and as a day in day out cable support, they will save you money. While most of our customers are using hook and loop to secure the bundles, a plastic retainer is available for the 1-5/16″ and 2″ sizes.
The Arlington Loop. The Arlington Loop is a plastic hanger approved for use in air handling spaces. We were one of the first distributors in the midwest to champion the loop. The Loop is available in a 2″, 2-1/2″ and 5″ size. Cost and flexibility is one of the reasons why the Arlington Loop has been a big mover for us. We make a few different custom versions including one with a hammer on clamp for flanges and beams as well as one with a multi clip or bat wing for grabbing on to grid wire. We do a lot with nation wide rollout projects that we build the hammer on version by the pallet. Learn more about the Arlington Loop here.
Pre-tied Ceiling Clips. This is another product a customer begged us to make for him. He needed 300 to suspend a cable run. Well we gave in and now we tie thousands upon thousands! Many are shooting up a grid wire and then twisting on a j-hook or Arlington Loop. Some are adding a second cable hanger up the grid with a bat wing or multi clip. Shipping can be a challenge. We encourage you to buy in packs of 200 as the shipping is virtually the same. A second option for you is to buy one of our hand wire twisters and make what you need as you go. A word of caution. If you are tying on clips for your Ramset or Hilti tool, make sure you use a quality clip like the Ramset SPC78 or SPC114 for a better “stick” rate. You can find them here.
