New Rockler Ceiling Track System

Ceiling Track System for Garage and Work Shops from Rockler

We just had to share this exciting new product from Rockler that looks extremely useful for helping clear some clutter over your work bench. This is definitely something I may try in my shop.

Medina, MN – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a ceiling track system for the garage and shop that reduces benchtop clutter by enabling users to position cords, hoses and other items from above.
“When you’re working with project parts on your bench or table, cords and hoses can be like a bull in a china shop,” said Steve Krohmer, Rockler’s vice president for product development. “Just a slight move, and things start crashing. With the Rockler Ceiling Track System, you get the cords and hoses up out of the way but still can move them while you work.”
The Ceiling Track System features interchangeable ring and hook attachments that thread into two available types of wheeled trolleys, which in turn roll in the dedicated ceiling-mounted track. Adjustable stops secure in the track to allow users to limit the trolleys’ movement, if desired, as well as prevent the trolleys from rolling out of the track. All components are available individually or in value-priced combo packages to allow users to customize their configuration to fit their work space.
The ring and hooks also can be used in applications such as suspending cabinet doors so all sides can be spray finished at once.
The track is made from durable PVC and is sold in 4′ sections that can be cut if needed. Each section is rated to hold 60 pounds and comes with mounting hardware and detailed installation instructions.
Two types of trolleys are available to use with the track. One rolls freely to allow easy repositioning, and the other locks in place when a fixed position is desired. Both feature sealed ball bearing wheels for smooth travel and durability, and both have 5/16″-18 TPI threaded openings to accept the attachments.
The attachments include a 1-1/2″ inside-diameter ring hook that fits power cords and air hoses; a medium J hook that fits hoses and other items up to 2-1/2″ in diameter and a large J hook that fits hoses and other objects up to 4″ in diameter. All are shaped from durable steel rod and feature a rubberized coating. Each attachment/trolley combo is rated to hold 20 pounds.
