I presume that you are talking about the "truss" bars holding up the ceilin
g (?)

If so, I usually run the cable along the connecting angle iron that runs fr
om truss to truss as support and then branch out to the side walls suportin
g the cables via the angles at the bottom of the trusses. I use tie wraps.  
Wires are clamped to side walls using various types of clamps determined by
 the size of the bundle/wire. Sometimes down walls via conduit ..... metal  
or plastic. If you're talking about large bundles then there are various ty
pes of cable trays, hooks and support products that are available

For metal stud I like to punch holes and put in plastic bushings.
