Cable tray slashes installation time

Apex Wiring Solutions, cable tray

Up to 70% saving in installation time is claimed for the Snake Tray cable-management system from Apex Wiring Solutions. This fully integrated steel-wire basket system can be quickly and easily bent by hand to accommodate changes in direction; there is no need to cut and form.

Snake Tray is available in galvanised steel, stainless steel and powder-coated steel. It has built-in mounting rings for direct fixing to surfaces and walls, suspended-ceilings and underfloor data and telecommunications cable-containment applications.

The system can also be used as a riser.

Sections can be bolted together using universal tray or inline connector bolts.

There are four options.

The 101 series comes in several sizes to accommodate nearly 55 000 mm2 of cable or 860 data cables.

The 201 series can accommodate 15 500 mm2 of cabling. A double-pocket version can separate voice/data and fibre cable runs in excess of 32 250 mm2. It can hold up to 500 different cables.

For long linear installations, the 501 series can be directly attached to a wall using integrated mounting rings, eliminating the need for additional brackets or hanging hardware.

A mini cable manager can be used for a variety of security, residential and office cable installation. There are three sizes capable of carrying upwards of 165 voice/data cables.
