PRO-10 Wire Cable Tray
PRO-10 Cable Tray innovative steel mesh design with built-in splice/bonding loops enables faster installation with less labor and materials. Easy to engineer and identify individual fittings and/or parts. PRO-10 Cable Tray is easily configured around obstacles and allows vertical changes. The straight sections and fittings address the entire range of applications. The cable tray was designed to eliminate the dangerously sharp wire ends when on-site fabrication is performed on a cable tray. Installation savings generally start at 50% and move higher dependent on the installation environment.
PRO-10 Cable Tray is ideal for today’s sensitive telecommunications fiber optic cables; but is also used for instrumentation cables, security and even electrical distribution. PRO-10 Cable Tray is used in Ceiling and Plenum spaces, Raised Access Floor areas and Telecom Closets. Indoor and outdoor versions available.
Why PRO-10 Cable Trays
PRO-10 Cable Trays, the One-Tool System™, are recognized by contractors and engineers as the premier cable tray system with the lowest installed cost. PRO-10 Cable Trays are a complete line of factory built turns and fittings that creates a 100% NEC Compliant Cable Tray System. PRO-10™ fittings connected to a PRO-10™ straight section maintains 100% UL® Classification that fully complies with NEC. PRO-10's built-in splice is also UL classified for bonding, assuring the job is done right the first time, every time. The patented One-Tool System™ reduces installation time by 50% or more and adapts to the most difficult installations.

PRO-10™ wire grid cable tray systems require only one tool and very few accessory items for installation. Pre-fabricated fittings/intersections reduce 50% or more labor hours by eliminating cutting and fabrication in the field. With center hung, trapeze, wall or floor mount accessories, PRO-10™ is prepared to handle the toughest installations.
Why Keep Your Cables Off the Floor?
Concrete that the raised floor is installed over often has a process that occurs over time called leeching. This occurs even if the concrete has been fully cured; there are processes that will stop leeching of concrete or impede its progress, but they are expensive and not typically used on most jobs. Leeching dramatically impacts the performance of your cable because of how it deteriorates the jacket of the cable allowing the elements to get closer to the copper.
If any water were to penetrate the floor or walls that lead to the underfloor area, the cable is in direct contact with the water which can lead to major problems. Sometimes this can occur without anyone knowing about the problem for weeks; tray is just extra piece of mind that your cable is off of the floor and away from any water that might infiltrate the data center.
Air Flow Problems
Over time if the cable is just laid on the concrete floor, it will accumulate into a large mass. This creates a problem known as “air dams”, which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but is the most crucial for data center applications. The first 4 inches off of the floor and the last 4 inches before the bottom of the flooring tiles are most prime areas to keep free of any impediments for optimal air flow. This is especially true if the end user is using “blade servers” as this type of server is growing in acceptance and is becoming the norm. Blade servers generate an enormous amount of heat and require the most air flow available for cooling.
Seperation of Power and Data Cables
Using tray allows for dedicated pathway for your data cables, which keeps them separate from any power cables. Especially critical in data center applications where the density of cables is increasing and will continue to increase.
