Drop Ceiling Mounting

  1. Drop ceiling mounting has an independent wrap around style T-Bar clip with a 2? or 5? Canopy to cover T-Bar clip. This gives a mounting loop for the additional cable to building structure inside the drop ceiling which complies with building codes.

Standoff Mounting

Standoff-small

  1.  A Standoff mounting uses a cable with a stop and cable coupler with a screw or a toggle winged butterfly inserted to screw in to wood structure with a CC1/8 Standoff. The CC1/8 standoff can also be used with a MGR 1/8IP gripper if cable height adjustment is wanted.

 Cord Kit Mounting

Cord feeds can sometimes be handled completely around the structural mounting system by floating the cord down the center.  Blank-up or Cord Kit Mini kits are excellent options to handle the power cord in this scenario.

Blank-up-Assembly

  1. A Blank-Up Cord Kit is ideal when the feed cord will finish on a junction box away from the cable suspension point.

Cord-Kit-Mini-BK-Assembly

  1. Cord Kit Mini can be utilized when suspending a light weight fixture under 5 lbs. or as a Blank-Up kit for SVT or AWM Cord under .250” in diameter.
