Cable Runway Ground Strap

Description

Cable Runway Ground Strap

A Cable Runway Ground Strap bonds cable tray, wire mesh tray and cable runway components together and to the telecommunications grounding and bonding infrastructure (e.g., through cabinets and racks). This method offers a better electrical connection than wires with lugs.

The industry’s usual solution is a #6 AWG stranded wire with a two-hole lug on each end. ERICO has gone one step further, in offering a gauge-equivalent tinned, electrolytic, woven copper braid with integral palms at each end with holes for attachment using 1/4” hardware.

The hardware is zinc-plated and sold separately (part number: CRGS6HW); hardware includes 50 packs of the following set:

– (2) #12 – 24 x 1/2” long, combo hex head screws
– (2) #12 hex nuts
– (2) #12 flat washers
– (2) #12 lock washers

Features

  • Requires less physical space than wires with lugs
