Eaton’s new Conduit Trapeze Support has launched
The new B-Line series Conduit Trapeze Support (BCTS)
significantly reduces total installed costs and saves space.
These supports are an ideal alternative to traditional strut
and pipe clamps or custom trapeze supports. The versatile
Z-shaped design supports various sizes of conduit, cable
tray / wire basket and attachment of other accessories like
BCTS is offered in three hole sizes and can be ordered in
standard lengths or easily cut to length in the field.
Standard hole patterns make it easy to stack for multiple
tiers or splice end to end. The Conduit Trapeze Support’s
feed-through design delivers a lower installed cost solution
with up to a 50% savings on installation time in new
construction or retrofit applications

As you may already know, B-Line Total Ruff-IN™ is a complete turn-key
solution that converts project drawings into a mapped room-by-room outline of
Ruff-IN™ pre-fab assemblies.
But here’s some very exciting news you may not know! When B-Line was
asked to put Total Ruff-IN up against conventional electrical installation
methods in an actual job-site, the results were phenomenal! Not only did the
Total Ruff-IN installation save the customer 35% on labor costs, it
provided a number of additional benefits, such as:
|Easy-to-read drawings and instructions|
|Fewer mistakes during installation|
|Less trash and no wasted parts on the jobsite|
|No need to measure or guess lengths on MC cable whips|
|No extra parts, packaging or tools required|
|Enables room-by-room or floor-by-floor delivery by installation schedule|
You can learn more by viewing our video of a side-by-side installation
comparison, along with comments from the actual installers and contractors who
were onsite during the taping. Here are a few ways to view this video and
share it with others:
We’ve also updated our Ruff-IN web pages on
www.cooperbline.com. The home page
remains the same –
www.cooperbline.com/Ruff-IN/index.asp – but we’ve condensed the verbiage and
broken it down into easier to read and follow pages. Here are the new links
you’ll now find at the Ruff-IN Home Page:
To support this video, we’ve also created a document that breaks down the
savings shown in the video. To download this document, go to the Total Ruff-IN

B-Line Grip Strut® Safety Grating Applications
is the manufacturer of the
original Grip Strut® Safety Grating. Others have attempted to imitate it, but in
test after test no other safety grating makes the grade!
Grip Strut® exceeds Federal
Specification RRG-1602-Latest Revision. Multi-directional tests were performed
under five conditions - dry, greasy, muddy, soapy and icy - with results proving
up to 180% more
slip-resistance than other similar products. The serrated surface of Grip Strut®
provides for slip resistance in all directions, under all conditions! And with
4-1/2" side channels on Grip Strut® walkway platforms, OSHA requirement for
toeboards on elevated structures is also satisfied.
The open design of Grip Strut® minimizes maintenance, permitting quick drainage
of fluids, chips, grease and mud, and ice accumulation shears easily under
normal foot pressure.
High strength-to-weight performance is achieved through depth of section and
structural design. The one piece construction offers integral side channels that
form a plank that can support loads with minimum traverse and longitudinal
Regular Grip Strut® is available in a multitude of options to accommodate your
needs for ladder rungs, stair treads, platforms and elevated walkway systems:
Widths from 1-5/8" to 24"
Depths from 1-1/8" to
Lengths up to 24'
12 and 14 gauge steel
(mill galvanized, black HRPO), .080" and .100" aluminum, and 16 gauge
stainless steel are standard finishes |
Ladder rung, plank and
walkway configurations. |
Heavy Duty Grip
Strut® is a one-of-a-kind plank grating sporting a
hefty 24 foot clear span capability. Heavy Duty Grip Strut® Safety Grating
products offer the advantages of Regular Grip Strut®
with the capacity for greater loads and/or longer spans.
Heavy Duty Grip Strut® walkways are ideal for process
plants, refineries, grain elevators, conveyor walkways, bridge inspection
and papermills. Heavy Duty Grip Strut® is more competitive than
ever against bar grating - shorter lead times, less support structure and
installation savings gained make it the most unique formed plank grating
available. Like the original Grip Strut®, Heavy Duty Grip Strut® has an array of
options to meet the most stringent requirements:
Widths from 9-1/4" to 36"
Depths from 2" to 5"
Lengths up to 24'
9, 10, and 11 gauge steel
(mill galvanized, black HRPO), and .150" aluminum |
Plank and walkway
Grip Strut® Industrial
Safety Grating accessories are available to satisfy nearly any requirement.
