Shaped wire mesh tray increases surface area on cable pathways by 400%
Cable Management: 09 August 2012

Chatsworth Products has increased the surface contact area for network cables by 400% with the introduction of OnTrac Shaped Wire Mesh Tray. This dramatic increase in surface area over many standard basket trays allows point-to-point cable pathways in data centres and network equipment rooms that are ideal for supporting high performance and high density cabling.

Replacing the traditional round crosswires used on most wire mesh trays with unique flattened cross wires, Shaped Tray is able to reduce pressure and strain by 68% for cables that come in contact with the tray. This simple change allows Shaped Tray to increase cable support and contact area, while still implementing the same installation techniques, splices, supports and accessories as CPI’s Standard Wire Mesh Tray, making it easy to adopt and use.

“OnTrac’s new Shaped Tray is an alternative premium wire basket tray offering over CPI’s current Standard Tray by providing increased cable support along with reduced cable pressure and strain relief, thus increasing network cable performance at no additional cost,” said Michael Moore, Product Manager for CPI’s Open Architecture Systems.

Shaped Tray has also been engineered for compatibility with data centres, office spaces and other facilities working toward green initiatives. Not only is Shaped Tray made from 100% recycled steel, choosing tray with a pre-galvanised finish eliminates environmental concerns about post production chemical cleaning and plating, as well as application concerns about zinc whiskers.

Shaped Tray features include:

• 400% larger contact surface for cables

• Up to a 68% reduction in cabling strain/pressure

• UL Classified

• Cuts, configures and splices the same as Standard Tray

• Ability to use bottom insert or liner to create a solid bottom tray

OnTrac Standard Tray, which uses round cross wires, will still be offered as part of the OnTrac Wire Mesh Tray System at the same cost as Shaped Tray.
