Non-Continuous Supports vs. Traditional Wire Basket Tray
When it comes to supporting data cable pathways, contractors must consider whether using a non-continuous support system is better than traditional wire basket trays. Although wire basket trays have been a more common means to support cables, another solution should be considered. An economical alternative to trays, non-continuous supports help maintain performance while providing built-in capacity limits and separation between bundles.
Non-continuous supports offer several advantages over traditional tray installations. Here are the top five benefits:
- Greater capacity and improved cable management
- Labor installation cost savings of up to 75 percent
- Easier to reconfigure for MAC (moves, adds and changes) work
- Grounding and bonding not required
- Nearly 90 percent less steel used
