Know some more about the cable trays

The cable tray systems come as a wonderful tool to route and manage all the wiring arrangements. One large tray has the ability to manage power wiring and data communication cabling by using a metal barrier along the centreline. The task of locating disorganised conductors which are difficult to trays during their repaired is minimised by the use of properly designed cable trays.


Cable tray systems can be defined as an assembly or unit for a section of fittings that form a solid structural framework that is used to secure support the cables and raceways. Cable trays are used to distribute cables from or to a source of utilisation. On the other hand, raceways are fixed on a wall in any room where both communication and power cables are terminated.

Cable trays systems are installed around the perimeter of a workshop and are fixed underneath the floor or on a specific height where workers can pass underneath the system without any disturbance. Another advantage of this is the power and data conductors can enter and exit at any location as the cable trays occupied the perimeter of the room.

Whenever made of conductive material, the cable trays establish conductors. Where segments jolt together, paint should be scratched off and jumper wires introduced to guarantee ground congruity.

Cable tray manufacturers in Dubai design cable trays in different sizes and in different varieties which include such as ladder, ventilated channels, solid bottoms trays and in different materials.

Ladder trays are generally used for dealing with heavy cables are large bundles. A trough cable tray is a pre-assembled structure comprising of a ventilated base with side rails. A trough cable tray is a inbuilt formation with ventilation in the bottom with side rails.

Cable tray systems are ideal for handling large bundles and heavier cables making use of single unjacketed conductors. These systems serve both the computer and telecommunication equipment under the floor cable. The cable trays are used for serving feeders, conductors, branch circuits, communication circuits, signalling circuits, control circuits etc.
