Utility supplies: Platinum Tools®, a provider of solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, will launch three new, high performance J-Hooks (Standard, 90 Degree, and Batwing) during InfoComm 2018, held from June 6-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth C3445.

The new cULus-Listed / Plenum-Rated J-Hooks are now shipping with available special order attachments.

“Our new HPH J-Hooks have been designed to support today’s modern high performance cable installs in the shop, home, and office, including Telcom / Voice, Network / Data, Broadband, Satellite, CCTV, Fiber, and Flexible Conduit,” explained Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. “Our Standard, 90 Degree, and Batwing high performance J-Hooks are built with steel J-Hooks over-molded with polypropylene for an easy cable slide. The ‘Snap-Lock’ retainer is easy to use and re-use, firmly securing cables every time and eliminating the use of cable and Velcro ties.”

With an industry leading bend radius of over three inches, HPH J-Hooks meet and exceed TIA’s bend radius standards. This prevents deformation to the cables such as indentations, pinches, or creases, making it easy for these J-Hooks to support high-performance cables, such as the Cat6, Cat6A, Cat7, and fiber optic cable types, while maintaining the high standards necessary to prevent cable interference.

“Our HPH J-Hooks come in four different sizes, the HPH16 (1 inch), HPH32 (2 inch), HPH48 (3 inch), and the HPH64 (4 inch) for all your cable management uses,” Lee continued. “The largest size, HPH64, has a cable capacity of up to three hundred and thirty Cat5e cables. All four sizes can be flush mounted for easy installation, and come pre-assembled to the most common fasteners, with options for special-order custom attachments. Unlike most of its competitors, the Snap-Lock, when open, even expands the HPH J-hook’s cable capacity.”

• Steel Beam Clamp (360 degree swivel or fixed)
