Suspension Field Notes. A must read!
Number of suspension cables per track
2’ track requires two cables
4’ track requires two cables
6’ track requires three cables
8’ track requires three cables

Sometimes the 8’ track does not come with a hole in the middle. It is ok to drill a hole in the center of the track. It is ok to slightly move the cable locations as site conditions may require this due to obstructions to insure they are hanging straight. Track is not structural and must be supported correctly. Do not panic, expect to drill some holes in the track to get everything hanging the way you want it. No two installations, ceilings, or site obstructions are the same. Plan Carefully, lay your project out before you start making assumptions and drilling holes. We want your project to go smooth.

Track has "polarity"
The power track has a “hot” busbar on one side and a “neutral and ground” on the other side. Lay your project out carefully on the floor so you can insure that the power connector can go in the correct side of the track. Do not put it in yet, as it is designed to go in and not come out. Do not over tighten the screws on any of the connectors, you will spread the track and not get electrical conduit. Do not use power tools on the track. L and T connectors have dual grounds, you will break off the extra ground on the job site so the connector will work in the track. Many connectors have a “jumper” in them so they can attach to the track physically but not electrically. Our connectors also have videos on them as to how they work.
“Making up” the electrical connections
It is recommended that the electrical connections be wired on a work bench or table then installed in the track, and the power cable run up the cable to the ceiling and the excess 14/3 be cut off there. It is a lot easier then trying to install the cable in the connector while standing on a ladder. This is covered in our videos.
Making sure you have all the parts
Before you schedule your installation make sure all the parts are on the job site and all shipments have been checked in, counted, sorted and accounted for. You are responsible for the materials list when you place the order. Our designers do their best to included everything but they are not on site. In addition our designers will make a materials list based on the drawing provided. We recommend that you add just a few connectors to insure that if the electrical has to make a change on the job site so he has materials on hand and you do not have to panic and place a air order. We will take returns on everything except the power track if you have to many of something. We need to make this return within 60 days or we can not offer a refund of the items returned. Plan ahead.
