Stiffy 200 series low voltage supports work
because they were designed and engineered for
real-world jobsite solutions
Stiffy 200 data communication supports
are engineered as an pre-fabricated assembly
saving valuable field labor.
Assemblies easily install from the ground with
CEAS overhead installation tools which increases productivity and are much safer than ladders.
SAVES TIME & MONEY
Fewer Installation Steps. The Stiffy DATACOM
rigid connection eliminates the need to attach to
ceiling grid. No need to revisit the support.
Pre-staked with several engineered
attachment options for any DATACOM concrete, metal, steel or wood applications.
Submittal documents are stamped and signed by
a Structural Engineer. Stiffy DATACOM assemblies are UL listed and buy American Act compliant.

Jobsite Problem - Stiffy Solution
Typical T-Bar Installation
Fig 200 Comfort Cradle
Step 1 – Install Ceiling Wire Step 2 – Climb up a ladder and attach the data support
Step 3 – Climb up a ladder and install the cable
Step 4 – Install Restraint Clip
Step 5 – Return to the location (after the T-bar Grid is installed), climb a ladder and attach the banana clip. (Per NEC 300.11)
Installer must revisit every support
Step 1 – Install the Stiffy from the ground
Pre-assembled $AVE$ labor
Step 2 – PULL the cable through the Stiffy No need to revisit – The rigid connection to the structure satisfies the requirements of NEC 300.11.
It doesn’t get any easier than this!!!
|Job Site Problem||Stiffy Solution|
|Engineered as an assembly||No||Yes|
|NEC300.11 compliant||Yes. Only when a Banana Clip is used to secure the wire to the T-bar Grid.||Yes|
|Pre-staked with several Engineered Attachment options||No||Yes|
|UL listed engineered attachment options for concrete, wood, metal and steel||No||Yes|
|Quick to install||No. Very labor intensive to install the batwing clips. Also, per NEC300.11 the ceiling wire must be secured at the top as well as bottom which requires a second trip to the same location.||Yes|
Construction Engineered Attachment Solutions
Construction Engineered Attachment Solutions (CEAS) a division of Tomarco Contractor Specialties, we have been creating labor saving attachment solutions for over 40 years. CEAS offers installers a wide array of custom support solutions for low voltage Data Communications Cabeling applications that have re-established the bar for the industry.
Each Stiffy support is made specifically to order. Our distributors carry a limited inventory because most products are produced on a just-in-time basis. The CEAS manufacturing department has the ability to custom fabricate supports quickly and accurately. Most orders ship from our manufacturing facility within 24 to 48 hours from the time the order is received. This enables contractors to custom tailor their support packages for each project.
CEAS is an affiliate of ISAT Seismic Bracing, an industry leader in pre-engineered seismic bracing systems for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing contractors. ISAT employs an extensive engineering and technical support staff, including Structural Engineers with stamps in most states.
CEAS products work on jobsites because they’re designed on jobsites. When unique product applications arise, CEAS has the ability to react quickly with prototypes and provide engineered product submittals that are approved by a Structural Engineer.
Contact your local CEAS distributor during the preconstruction phase of your next project. We will help to create the most labor saving and cost effective engineered attachment solution specific to your application.
We look forward to working with you on your next project.
