The electrical contractor, Cont Electric, utilized Fast Trak to suspend conduit on the UNLV Expansion.

  • Project Type: Conduit
  • Main Contractor: Conti Electric
  • Building Structure: Concrete
  • Services: Electric 

The contractor, Conti Electrics, was looking for a quick solution to suspend conduit on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas expansion project.

Prior to this job, the contractor had no experience with Gripple products. They decided to try Fast Trak on one area of the project. They found that not only were the products easy to install but also provided huge time savings.

These results convinced the contractors at Conti Electric to suspend all remaining conduit with Fast Trak.

The Fast Trak system was 6.5x faster than the traditional method, saving the contractor 9 days of installation time and $13,000 total savings. The advantages of Fast Trak convinced the Superintendent to use Fast Trak on all future conduit scopes.
