prefabricated metal structure consisting of two side rails connected by individual transverse embers or rungs. Cable Ladder Trays are the most common and most economical types of trays.

Grey color enamel paint or powder coat
Fabrication in pre – galvanized steel or hot dip galvanized


The Zinc used to manufacture this Hot dip galvanized cable trays has 99.99% purity. The process is recommended for cable tray used in most outdoor environments and many harsh industrial environment applications such as moisture areas and coastal areas.

Powder Coated :

Recommend for indoor areas and not for the places where the direct sunlight falls. Due to excessive heat, it starts peeling and fading under high temperature. It gives a smooth and appealing finish. The Powder coated Cable trays are widely used and suited for maximum moisture areas like coastal areas due to low electricity conductivity of the material.
