T&B® Cable Tray Over-Support Splice Adaptor Reduces Need for Structural Supports

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 27, 2015 – The T&B® Cable Tray Over-Support Splice Adaptor, new from Thomas & Betts (T&B), reduces costs by reducing the need for structural supports for the expansion of beams and struts. It also can be used for mid-span splicing. 

“The Over-Support Splice Adaptor was originally designed to reduce the number of supports needed for expansion of modular aluminum beam and strut system assemblies,” said Ralph Donati, product marketing director at T&B. “Engineers, contractors and end users have found that it contributes to cost reductions without sacrificing the assembly’s structural integrity.”


The T&B® Cable Tray Over-Supper Splice Adaptor is placed below the expansion joint and allows for wider distribution of support, thereby minimizing stress and deflection on the assembly. No additional supports are required.
