Looking for cable management ladder rack? Try U hooks with Unistrut!

CADDY “CAT CM” is an alternative to cable tray in low-voltage and power cable applications. This cable-support system has cULus®-Listed components and allows for customized support spacing and simple horizontal and vertical change of direction.


Beginning with the J-Hook, ERICO® continues to innovate and develop the complete line of CADDY® CABLECAT products to support today’s high-performance cable. The CADDY CAT CM provides a cable tray alternative utilizing rod and strut components together with specifically developed steel brackets.


  • Includes specially designed U-Hooks and double J-Hooks with large-diameter, rounded support surfaces/edges to avoid over-bending and kinking of cables
  • Accommodates U-Hooks in a range of sizes for different cable capacity needs
  • Offers two installation options that can easily be combined resulting in installation flexibility to meet a variety of needs
    • Rod-mounted option
    • Cantilever-mounted option

The Rod-Mounted option allows for field assembly of the hooks onto All-Thread Rod. Benefits include:

  • Customized intervals between hooks to comply with ISO/IEC 18010
  • Easy level changes – under or over ductwork, piping, etc. – no level change fittings necessary
  • Direct attachment to the ceiling or building structure with threaded rod and CADDY® Fasteners

The Cantilever-Mounted option consists of U-Hooks mounted with brackets to walls and columns. This option allows for:

  • Cable runs along walls
  • Specification of individual hook spacing as needed
  • Mounting of cable within existing column grid

For me, what makes this attractive is that you can pick up unistrut local to you. A very common issue with long pieces of long ladder is the freight, lead time and cost can hurt your project estimate or hurt you on the back end after the freight bill arrives eating into your margins.
