Two New Caddy Fasteners from Erico for Multiple Strut Trapeze Applications

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - SOLON, Ohio, March 14, 2003 - Two new CADDY Fasteners from ERICO - the ISN Smart Nut and the ISSP Strut Plate - allow you to easily create multiple strut trapeze installations.

o The ISN Smart Nut reduces installation time because it snaps anywhere on 3/8"-16 threaded rod and is adjustable and removable. It is ideal for installations where rod ends are not accessible. With a load rating of 220 lbs., it supports plumbing, HVAC and electrical and is ideal for retrofit applications. The ISN nut's flat surface construction eliminates the need for a washer.

o The ISSP Strut Plate allows for easy attachment of strut between existing rods. It eliminates precise cutting of strut and the need for multiple hardware pieces. The ISSP can be used in commercial and industrial applications and has a load rating of 220 lbs. The specially designed bolt has a "locking design" to eliminate loosening or "backing off" due to vibration.

Installed together, the ISN and the ISSP create an easy-to-install system that minimizes installation time and eliminates the need for additional structure fasteners and drop rods. For more information about the ISN/ISSP, call ERICO at l-800-252-2339.
