Default Teck90 Support Question

Hi there,

I want to know if its legal or not to use strut channel to support a Teck90 Cable over a long distance ?

I can't find the article but i dont know why, i always used EMT Conduit for long distance installation if i had to use strut channel or straps.

For long distance on Teck90 i thought i had to use Cable Tray because using Cantruss to support these cable wasnt allowed.

Any clarification about it would be appreciated

Thanks !

Parallel or perpendicular to the cable?

No issues as far as I'm concerned. Tray is used for multiple cables. For only one cable, tray is overkill.

depends on the distance. For only a couple of cables we'll use 4" instrument tray then you only need strut every 3M instead of every couple of feet to keep it looking like bunting.

I've attached teck to all sorts of things including the outsides of buildings.
That's one of the nice things about teck, you can use it almost anywhere
and run it on almost anything. Attaches nicely to strut with off the shelf
straps. Support within 300mm of boxes and every 1.5m throughout run.

Can teck cable be run along a floor or on the ground on a concrete pad?

I have seen guys run cable inside of unistrut and that is one HUGE PITA IMO... Especially when the cable has to be pushed in, and a seal on one end.. Two pairs of channel locks and the strut was destroyed...

Needs mechanical protection in those places.. Rigid PVC conduit usually works..

I've only done this with strut bolted to the floor immediately to one side.
Teck's tough, but not forklift, etc tough.

The guy I have been working for does some hot tubs and I always see teck cable near the floor going into the tub though. The last house we did a hot tub removal and the tub was about 20" away from the house wall. The installer ran teck horizontally along the house, down to the ground, then across the patio slabs the 20" distance.
The teck was on the floor for this small portion and was unprotected and got passed.

Next time it could fail. It's a trip hazard for one thing. Lift a patio slab and dig it in. An extra half hour on the job to make it pretty makes for happy customers.
