There are various types of cable tray which are used in the industrial areas to manage the cable wire systems. Among various types of wire management systems, trays are the best for its features like durability, reliability, tough texture and sturdy design. They are made with the different types of materials which serve various purposes and have different features but the common thing is all of them hold the cable wires and provide an efficient wiring management. The device provides wiring flexibility, easy installation, simplicity, and lower installation & maintenance cost.
The system is open and provides ventilation which assists in avoiding the excess production of heat while allowing the wires time to let them cool. The best part about this system is they can be installed overheads and under the floor. It is also easy to install them indoors as well as outdoors.
Different Types Of Materials Used To Make Cable Trays:-
Galvanized Cable Tray – Galvanization is the process of coating the iron or steel material with the zinc to provide it a protective layer which is a good resistant of corrosion. The product is galvanized with the coating of zinc on the steel trays. Zinc provides long-lasting protection against corrosion and dust and is less expensive. They are generally made with the pre-galvanized sheets which are fabricated into trays.
Hot Dipped Galvanized Cable Tray – The difference between galvanization and hot dipped galvanization is slight but it has a deeper meaning. The layer of zinc is coated on the steel or iron material by immersing them into molten zinc. The trays are fabricated from steel first and dipped later in the molten zinc at a certain temperature.
Stainless Steel Cable trays – It is a steel alloy which contains steel with a minimum of 10.5% and rest is chromium. The purpose of using the material is to save it from corrosion. It is an oxidation, acid, heat, electricity, and magnetism resistant product. It is harder and less malleable. It is more resistant to the corrosion, less brittle and
Mild Steel Cable Tray – It is also referred as the carbon steel which is used to make the product. It is hard from outside but tough and ductile from inside. The carbon steel has a percentage of steel ranging from 0.12-2.0%. It is an alloy made with combining titanium, chromium, zirconium, cobalt, niobium, tungsten, vanadium, molybdenum, nickel, or any other element to obtain a desired effect. It is also cost-effective.
