NOS can customize the kits to contain various connector types/polishes to meet customer needs.

Pro 10 Wire Cable Tray
M.E.2 Wire Cable Tray

Cable-Mgr. should be installed from the originating head-end i.e., the electrical or telecommunications closet. Once the pathway has been established, it is important the layout of the pre-fabricated junctions be installed first. Junctions/intersections lengths are standard: 12 inches wide or less come 2 feet in length and junctions/intersections more than 12 inches wide come 3 feet in length. This allows for field measurements to be taken before installing the cable tray. If the straight sections are installed first, it will cause unnecessary field adjustments. Each section has loops at each end. When the sections are connected, the loop on the bottom aligns under the galvanized masked area of the adjoining section. The loop on the side slides into the outside loop guide. Once the trays are aligned, install the 5/16 inch carriage bolt (included) through the loops with the treaded end to the outside of the tray. Install and tighten the flanged nuts with a ½ inch socket. This reduces the chances of damage when pulling the cables. Elevation may be adjusted by using pre-fabricated drop with universal hooks (Fig. 1) or individual straight sections with universal hooks and extenders (Fig. 2). Adjust the length with the Cable-Mgr. cable tray extensions CM-58 (Fig. 3). The extensions fit into the side guides facilitating adjustment of the tray up to 6 inches on each end. It is not recommended that the cable tray be cut as it will interfere with the grounding characteristics and UL classification..

What is a Cable Tray System?

Per the National Electrical Code, a cable tray system is "a unit or assembly of units or sections and associated fittings forming a rigid structural system used to securely fasten or support cables and raceways."
What does this mean?

* Cable trays support cable the way that roadway bridges support traffic.
* A bridge is a structure that provides safe passage for traffic across open spans.
* Cable tray is the bridge that allows for safe transport of wires across open spans.
* Therefore, think of cable tray as the structural component of a building's electrical system.

What standards / guidelines are available for cable tray systems?

1. The National Electrical Code publishes the standards for all types of electrical applications. Articles 318, 250, and 800 cover various aspects of cable tray systems.
2. NEMA, (National Electrical Manufacturers Association), is an association comprised of the major cable tray manufacturers in the industry. This committee has published three documents to date: NEMA VE1, FG1 and VE2.

NEMA VE1 covers general cable tray definitions, manufacturing standards, performance standards, test standards, and application information. Free download of this document is available on the NEMA website.

NEMA FG1 addresses the standards for fiberglass cable tray systems. Free download of this document is available on the NEMA website.

NEMA VE2 is a cable tray installation guideline which covers receiving and unloading material, storage of material, and general installation practices. Free download of this document is available on the NEMA website.
3. CTI, (Cable Tray Institute), is a trade association comprised of the major cable tray manufacturers in the industry and was formed to provide specifiers, designers, and installers information on the advantages of using cable tray systems over other types of products. (i.e. conduit, ladder rack, etc.)

What types of Cable Tray are available?

1. Ladder Cable Tray
2. Solid Bottom Cable Tray

2. standard widths of 3, 4, and 6 inches in metal systems and up to 8 inches in nonmetallic systems.
3. standard depths of 1¼-1¾ inches in metal systems and 1, 1 1/8, 1 5/" and 2 3/16 inches in nonmetallic systems
4. standard length of 10, 12, 20 and 24 feet
Channel cable tray is used for installations with limited numbers of tray cable when conduit is undesirable. Support frequency with short to medium support spans of 5 to 10 feet.

5. Wire Mesh Cable Tray provides:
1. A job site, field adaptable support system primarily for low voltage, telecommunication and fiber optic cables. These systems are typically steel wire mesh, zinc plated.

Wire Mesh tray is generally used for telecommunication and fiber optic applications and are installed on short support spans, 4 to 8 feet.

6. Single Rail Cable Tray provides:
1. These aluminum systems are the fastest systems to install and provide the maximum freedom fort cable to enter and exit the system.
2. Single hung or wall mounted systems in single or multiple tiers.
3. Standard widths are 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 inches.
4. Standard depths are 3, 4, and 6 inches.
5. Standard lengths are 10 and 12 feet.
Single Rail Cable Tray is generally used for low voltage and power cables installations where maximum cable freedom, side fill, and speed to install are factors.

What materials / finishes are available for the various cable tray systems?

Now that I know what types of cable trays are available, what configurations are available?

1. Straight sections are available to route cables in a horizontal or vertical plane.
2. Fittings are available to route cables in various directions in either the horizontal or vertical planes. Typical examples of fittings include elbows, tees, crosses, and risers. Each of these fittings are available in various radii and bend angles.
3. Covers are accessories and shouldn't be in here unless splices etc. are included.

After selecting the type of cable tray and configuration required, what support methods are available?

1. Trapeze Support (Single or Multi-tier)
2. Hanger rod clamps, "J" hangers
3. Center Hung Support
4. Wall Support
5. Underfloor Support
6. Pipe stanchions or other structures

Each of these support methods are preferable in different applications. For instance, trapeze supports may be desired in an application where cables will be pulled through the cable tray. Center hung supports, on the other hand, are generally used when cables will be installed from the side of the cable tray. Center hung supports are especially useful when future cable additions are desired. Wall supports and underfloor supports are useful when ceiling structure is not available or undesired. Outdoor installations are controlled by the structures available to support the cable tray.
Before selecting the type of cable tray, cable tray configuration(s), and support method desired, what additional information do I need to supply to the cable tray manufacturer for them to best understand and satisfy my needs?

1. Where? Job site and installation considerations
1. Outdoor
1. supports available affect the length and strength requirements
2. environmental loads, ice, wind, snow, and possibly seismic
3. corrosion requirements affect the materials and finishes
4. classified hazardous locations affect the cable types acceptable
2. Indoor
1. support locations available affect the length and strength of the system
2. industrial installation may require a 200 lb. Concentrated Load
3. commercial or institutional installation may make system appearance, system weight, and space available important factors
4. environmental air handling area may affect cable types, cable tray material, or cable tray type and need for covers
5. classified hazardous locations affect the cable types acceptable

2. What?
1. Type and number of cables to support
1. NEC cable fill requirements dictate size, width and depth, of system
2. cable support requirement may control bottom type
3. largest bending radius of cable controls fitting radius
4. total of cable weight determines load to support
2. Future requirements
1. cable entry / exit freedom
2. design partially full or an expandable system
3. support type to allow for needs
