EzyStrut was the first company to offer an AS3013:2005 Fire Rated cable support system in 2010, and since then our range has grown and developed to solidify our position as having the strongest and most efficient to install solutions that provide the best value to project managers.

EzyStrut understands the needs of installers working on projects that are required to have AS3013:2005 compliance for the products used in them: They need products that offer reliability, effortless installation, options for different loads and spans, multiple widths and depths, and proper assurance of compliance with the stringent standard.

We do not just offer you one product with one load or span with one profile. We offer you lots of options for fire rated tray to offer continuous support for cables, mesh for ultra flexibility, and ladder for high volume, heavy weight cabling. You can learn more about the differences between these options here. Our Australian engineering team can work with your site requirements to design an appropriate solution for your needs.

Materials and Finishes

By standard, all of the EzyStrut Fire Rated components are manufactured from steel, and are hot dip galvanised after fabrication to meet AS4680:2006. This gives them a strong, all over coating of zinc that is metalurgically bonded to the parent steel, and means that the product is protected against corrosion in most outdoor environments.

Tray and mesh can also be fabricated from pre-galvanised steel, which has a visually clean appearance, and is ideal for inside installations where the product will be visually exposed.

Handy Info
EzyStrut’s fabrication services (EzyFab) can assist with arranging for powder coating of all products, as an optional additional finish, to provide any colour or texture necessary for design reasons, which can include a special matte black to prevent reflections on the steel if the product is being installed in an environment such as a road tunnel.

Testing

All testing of EzyStrut Fire Rated Cable Supports is carried out in accordance with relevant loading, and AS3013:2005 requirements. All results are independently certified by a NATA accredited facility.
