Custom Ceiling Brackets for CurtainCage Cable Kits

When choosing to use a CurtainCage system (wall to wall cable kit) which allows you to slide the net on cable lines, sometimes cable lines can’t be anchored into wall whether it’s due to obstructions on the wall or longer gaps between walls. When this is the case, we have options to anchor the cables off of the ceiling using a custom ceiling bracket. The following info will help to clear up what exactly the brackets are and what options are available.

Basic Ceiling Bracket

The above picture is an example of a custom ceiling bracket. This is a basic type of bracket which can be used in place of a standard wall plate (pictured below). These ceiling brackets can be used to connect off of almost any types of ceiling structure. The typical construction consists of a base plate with a connected arm to drop down to the cable line height. The cable or turnbuckle on the cable line would connect to the arm. Additional connection holes can be added in the arm if you need to anchor multiple cables lines stacked on one another or if you need to connect the net so make sure it keeps it’s shape and doesn’t slide down the cable (pictured below).

On the above sketch, the cable layout would remain the same, the only difference being the ceiling bracket used in lieu of the wall plate. If you have to span a gap with cable lines, you’ll need to use a ceiling bracket with an offset kicker to reduce the inward pressure (see below). The basic setup on this bracket utilizes holes on both sides of the bracket. The inward holes would attach to the cable line(s) supporting the net while the outer holes would connect to another cable line which would connect to a wall plate connecting to the ceiling or a wall on the backside. This outward cable would also have a turnbuckle attached to create tension to lessen the inward tension on the cable line supporting the net.

There are some limits to using a custom ceiling bracket. The main being requesting too long of an arm coming down from the base plate connected to the ceiling. The longest arm recommended is around 3′. Creating a longer arm portion will make the connection to the base plate a bit unstable. We are always available to help with your custom setup so please give us a call or send an email.
