J-Hooks with Concrete Anchors
You will encounter areas that require your J-Hooks to be fastened to solid concrete ceilings. However, finding the right fasteners is often a challenge.
Concrete is a brittle material, if anchoring is done incorrectly, the fastener can fail, or the surrounding concrete can experience cracking and spalling.
In recognition of the challenges associated with concrete fastener installation, Hookandhanger.com supplies specialized J-Hooks with integrated concrete anchors that can be easily installed using powder-actuated or single-shot gas-actuated tools. Our J-Hooks with concrete anchors are specially designed to support a wide range of data communication and low voltage cable arrangements.
How Do Our J-Hook with Concrete Anchors Work?
Powder-actuated tools are a type of fastening technology that involves using the energy released from small controlled explosions to drive fasteners into hard materials, like concrete. These explosions are created when a firing pin strikes a sensitive explosive charge at the base of a cartridge (similar to a firearm).
Our specialized fasteners are designed to be driven into concrete using these powerful tools. When the force is applied to our pin by the powder-actuated device, the steel anchor creates a hole in the concrete by crushing and compacting it. The J-Hook concrete anchor's high-strength composition allows it to withstand the impacts against hard aggregates as it is driven into the concrete matrix.
The friction created by the pin and the surrounding concrete keeps it in place. The length of our J-Hook concrete anchors also allows for sufficient embedment into the concrete, thereby providing enough grip strength to support bundles of various heavy-duty data communication and voice cables.
Our Concrete J-Hook Specifications
The 1 - 4" diameter loops on our concrete J-Hooks can accommodate up to 330 4-Pair UTP CAT 5e or 2-strand fiber optic cables; or up to 220 CAT 6 cables. These simple cable management tools will also easily support almost all types of data comm and low voltage cables, such as CAT 5, CAT 5e, CAT6, CAT 6a, CAT 6e, fiber optic, and Innerduct.
The specially-designed 1" long x 0.157" diameter pin/anchor fits in our 90-degree angle clip. The perpendicular direction of the angle clips allows for easy installation on concrete roofing surfaces. The pin and angle assembly can accommodate a maximum load capacity of 17 lbs – more than enough to support the most burdensome cable bundles.
Concrete is highly alkaline in nature, making it particularly aggressive towards metal components. At Hook and Hanger, we have designed our products for durability and longevity. As such, our concrete J-Hooks are constructed from galvanized steel. The protective zinc coating from the galvanizing process minimizes adverse reactions between the concrete and the steel, thus preventing corrosion in the metal J-Hook components.
Furthermore, our J-Hook products are also compliant with NEC and TIA requirements for structured cabling systems.
At Hook and Hanger, we aim to make your concrete installation as quick and painless as possible. Our concrete J-Hooks remove the guesswork from selecting the right fastener, giving you one less thing to worry about.

About Doc's® High Performance Hybrid J-Hooks
HPH J-Hooks are specially designed to provide optimum support for high speed data cable, such as Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A, Cat 7 and fiber optic.
We use a hybrid of metal and plastic components to offer the best of both worlds. The plastic component provides a two inch wide base support with a slick and burr free surface. The metal component provides a strong backbone. The combined J-Hook is UL listed, RoHS compliant, TIA compliant and is suitable for installation in plenum and air handling spaces.
One of the most innovative features of the HPH J-Hook is the built-in snap-lock retainer. This is far superior to clumsy retainer wires, cable ties or Velcro straps that require additional on-site installation.
Bend radius is an important factor in any high speed data cable installation. HPH J-Hooks offer the largest bend radius available at an average of 3.57 inches.
HPH J-Hooks are available pre-assembled to UL listed and RoHS compliant attachments, allowing for easy installation to a variety of structures and surfaces.
Consult with the cable manufacturer for proper installation guidelines.
