Cut Install Time 50% Claims Magdaddy

Author: Ari Erenthal, Published on Nov 21, 2016

Modern commercial buildings frequently use open web steel joists that makes running cabling very challenging. Cables need to be run near to but not touching the joist and supported at regular intervals, which can be costly and time consuming.

One supplier, Magdaddy, says they have a solution for this with that reduced time and cost by using neodymium magnetized cable management products.

In this note, we review the issues involved, MagDaddy's offering, potential benefits and tradeoffs.
