Most any solar panel installation worth its salt, whether on the roof or on the ground, should feature secure mounting for the panels and a secure and protective raceway system to manage the dozens, hundreds or even thousands of cables. The issue heard, probably around the globe, is “What do we do with all these wires?”
When Snake Tray, a manufacturer of cable management systems, wanted to install solar panels on the roof of its headquarters in Bay Shore, N.Y., to reduce its electric bill, right off the bat it ruled out using conduit to route the cable because it is expensive and labor-intensive to install and often requires de-rating cables to compensate for the excessive heat buildup inside the conduit.
Snake Tray’s newest innovation in data and power distribution is our ultra thin enclosure for computer access floors that delivers power and data directly to the workstation. Data and power receptacles are built-in to the 1.6 inch height enclosure that is great for very shallow computer access floors or in floors with limited available space. Enclosures can be customized to meet customer’s requirements. The enclosure’s lid meets ANSI approval.
