Platinum Tools Launches New J-Hooks Series Three New Hooks are cULus Listed, Plenum Rated, RoHS, and TIA Compliant By RS Staff Published: February 26, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 Platinum Tools has launched three new, high performance J-Hooks (Standard, 90 Degree, and Batwing). 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.” [Metra Home Theater Group Debuts Structured Wiring Panels and TV Mounts] With a bend radius of more than three inches, HPH J-Hooks 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 Cat-6, Cat-6A, Cat-7, 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 Cat-5e 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.” Special-order attachments include: Steel Beam Clamp (360 degree swivel or fixed); Right Angle Powder Actuated; Spring Steel Beam Clamp (360 degree swivel or fixed); Vertical Overhang for “C” Purlin; Angled Overhang for “Z” Purlin; and Hammer-On Beam Clamp (360 degree swivel or fixed).
