“Installation time and material complexity are critical elements on construction job sites,” said Patrick Keller, product manager, Eaton’s B-Line Division. “This industry-first design allows for a quicker installation and reduces hardware, helping customers improve the bottom line on their construction projects.”

The KwikSplice Cable Tray aluminum system features a patent-pending I-Beam design that enables the use of an industry-first two-bolt splice connection that can reduce labor by up to 50 percent compared to traditional four-bolt splice connections.

In addition to the straight sections and fittings, the full system solution includes the innovative tab and lock design trapeze support, side rail drop out, conduit to tray adapters and universal fittings. All are designed to help secure and protect cables while saving installation time. The KwikSplice cable tray system can also help eliminate the need for additional costly electrical grounding solutions when compared to wire basket systems.

KwikSplice meets compliance for National Electrical Manufacturing Association (NEMA) 12A and 12B load classes, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) class C & D load classes and is Underwriters Laboratories (UL)® classified.
