How Does CPI Ladder Rack Stack Up? Recent Runway Project in UK Shows How

(Applications, CPI Blog, International) Permanent link

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.

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.

The CPI Cable Runway solution is our preferred method of routing data cabling due to the amount of additional bend radius products that have been developed by CPI that you use in conjunction with it. If you are looking for a very robust solution to carry a lot of cabling then look no further!

In addition, the EMEA team and especially Ben Parker are super knowledgeable and a great support when designing such a solution. Ben can create the edge you need to sell this into your customers.
