Type 8 H-rail suspension is a versatile system, excellent for complex and vertical installations. The H-rail, so named because it looks like an H in the cross section, is made out of anodized aluminum, making it an excellent choice for corrosive environments. The H-rail is supported with intermediate vertical cable drops that lock into the top channel of the rail. The duct is then suspended from the rail.

Type 8 suspension is available with All-In-One.
