Product Spotlight: New Eaton’s B-Line Series Conduit Trapeze Support

Traditionally, strut trapeze is used for hanging and aligning conduit. Eaton has developed their new B-Line series Conduit Trapeze Support to cut down on the number of parts needed and installation time, while adding versatility.

Eaton’s B-Line series Conduit Trapeze Support eliminates the need for pipe clamps at every location, and has a Z-shape design for added strength. Most configurations exceed the maximum load ratings defined by UL/NEC requirements. The flange works with ½” or 3/8” ATR or bolts at regular intervals, and can be cut to size on the field or spliced end-to-end.

Because of its structure, the new Conduit Trapeze Support system requires up to 75% fewer parts than the traditional strut support, and can reduce installation time up to 60%.  There are three standard sizes accommodating up to 4” conduit available in lengths ranging from 12” to 120”.
