No sag with Cope Trof ladder cable tray system
By Renée Francoeur
July 25, 2016 – Cope’s new Trof cable tray system is a prefabricated metal structure featuring ventilated or solid bottoms welded to side rails. Designed for most size cables, Cope Trof cable tray is available in hot-dip galvanized steel, pre-galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
Manufactured and tested to NEMA standard VE-1, the tray features corrugations that Cope says “provide lateral rigidity to the bottom of the tray”, transmitting the load to the side rails. It also offers support of 1-in. ribs every two in., with or without ventilation.
The tray meets ASTM A1011 or ASTM A1008 standards for hot-dip galvanized steel products; ASTM A-653-G90 for pre-galvanized steel products; AA-6063-T6 and AA-6063-H34 for aluminum side rails and bedplates, respectively; and ASTM A-240 type 304 for stainless steel products.
