“Gripple hangs nice and straight, even when angled around other services. Threaded rod can’t do that!”
Fisk Electric

Gripple was the choice to hang cable tray throughout the 1 million sq. ft. Convention Center portion of the City Center project. Trapeze fasteners were used with 3/8” stud end fixings on 40 ft cable lengths. Prior to deciding to use Gripple on this job, the electrical contractor did a side by side test in two 300 ft corridors: one team installed using Gripple, and one team installed using threaded rod. The threaded rod team took eight days to complete their installations, while the Gripple team took only two days.
