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:

  1. Greater capacity and improved cable management
  2. Labor installation cost savings of up to 75 percent
  3. Easier to reconfigure for MAC (moves, adds and changes) work
  4. Grounding and bonding not required 
  5. Nearly 90 percent less steel used
