Hoffman introduces the new CableTek Management System, a versatile, uniquely designed system that provides support for cable bundles and individual cables in standard 19-inch data racks and simplifies moves, adds, and changes (MACs). This system is said to offer Horizontal and Vertical Cable Managers in a variety of sizes and allows simple transitions from horizontal to vertical systems, optimizing storage capacity, reducing cable expenses and increasing time efficiency. CableTek systems are EIA compliant and accommodate CAT 5e, 6 and 6A cables. Plus, CableTek systems offer tool-less snap-in mounting for easy installation.

“CableTek Horizontal and Vertical Cable Managers facilitate the quick responses to MACs required for today’s rapidly evolving technology, increasing data capacity requirements, and growing companies,” says Brian Mordick, Hoffman senior product manager for DataCom. “These cable managers offer durable, lightweight construction and a rich feature set. Utilizing a 3P design process, the CableTek product line is highly-innovative and available in record time. Also, with its easily opened covers, bidirectional hinging options and sturdy end posts, CableTek optimizes cable network organization and allows easy modifications.” Mordick adds, “Plus, the system’s deep fingers provide the highest cable fill in the industry, with rounded edges to protect against damage by minimizing twisting, over-stretching and nicking cables.”

CableTek Management Systems maintain the proper cable bend radius for CAT 5e, 6 and 6A cables, and they are available in single-sided or double-sided horizontal as well as vertical options. In addition, pass-through holes provide extra wiring flexibility, while an optional cable tie-down bar delivers rear-bundle support, company says.

Features optional cable tie-down bar to provide additional support for heavy bundles.
