Explanation: see refs in my answer to 'vervalstuk'.
There is also a site that uses 'stigstuk' and 'vervalstuk' as names for brackets that can be used to join two sections of cable tray or cable ladder at an angle (either rising or falling), but this doesn't seem to be standard usage, and there is little difference to be seen between these brackets and the elbow brackets described immediately afterward (http://www.stago.nl/nieuws/E-zine 2006/web-content/E-zine nr... excepth that the elbow brackets are apparently also designed for easy bending to create horizontal angles.
