What’s the best rooftop support system?

The “CADDY PYRAMID” rooftop supports are a surface mounted solution for supporting electrical and mechanical applications on a variety of roof surfaces.

They offer superior load capacity and dramatically reduce installation time by replacing slow, heavy and labor-intensive methods for support of pipe, conduit, duct, cable tray and equipment.

Unlike wood blocks, “CADDY PYRAMID” supports are specifically designed for rooftop applications, incorporating unique materials and finishes that protect roof membranes and provide superior corrosion protection.

Here’s some features of the Strut model.
