Shipping Cable Trays

Are Shipping Costs Eating Into Your Construction Profits?

Snake Tray’s cable management systems are typically wire basket tray sections that, by design, nest inside each other to pack a lot of product into very little space. This one simple characteristic provides a number of benefits, all while helping builders achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification by minimizing costs and waste even as they improve building aesthetics by keeping cables organized and out of sight:

Cable Management for historic buidlings

Cable Management in Historic Buildings and Existing Structures

Our growing appetite for mobile communications is driving the need for wireless networking in places it had never been before. The irony is that installing the backbone to improve wireless network performance actually increases the need for cables and cable conveyance systems. Because at some point, every wireless access point requires a hard-wired connection to a router, server or service provider.

Raised Floor Cable Management

5 Benefits of Raised Floor Cable Management

Architects and engineers have known for years about the advantages of raised access floors. In addition to creating an interstitial space for easy access to power lines and data cables, raised flooring eliminates the need for HVAC ductwork. Rather, climate-controlled air is pumped under the entire floor and rises up through diffusers.

Besides eliminating the labor and expense of fabricating sheet metal air ducts and vents reaching every floor and room of a building – in itself a major cost justifier – the removal of these obstacles allows for greater flexibility when running power lines and data cables, and contributes to increased airflow for better heat dissipation.

California Title 24 Building Compliance & Power Distribution

The California Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards require builders to meet ever-evolving criteria for energy conservation and to use green construction practices whenever possible in order to protect our environment. What started in California is rapidly proliferating across the country as other states model Title 24 energy efficiency standards for large-scale commercial structures as well as residential homes. This has given rise to an entire industry focused on eco-friendly building design initiatives and innovations that make buildings smarter.

Applying Codes and Standards in Data Center Construction

Complying with building codes and industry standards is a necessary part of data center construction, and this applies to cable-tray system design and implementation as well. While the most cost and labor efficient method to cable a data center is the use of a prefabricated cable tray management system, you can’t just bundle as many cables as you’d like and drop them into a run. There are specific rules that must be followed for tray fill capacities.

How to Effectively Manage Solar Panel Cables

Building a solar plant is about efficiencies. We’ve come a long way in terms of solar panel technology, evolving from an expensive government-subsidized industry into a self-sustainable energy market sector. However, power generation is a thin margin game, so squeezing the most wattage out of every dollar spent on materials, labor and ongoing repairs is critical to driving profitability.

The Benefits of Using Pre-Fabricated Products in Data Center Design

Like any other industry, enterprises in the business of moving and storing data are learning to benefit from economies of scale. The next generation 5G wireless network promises to increase data volume exponentially. A 5G network provides vastly increased speed and capacity, but requires smaller cells and closer proximity to the cloud in order to deliver the low latency required for a seamless digital experience.
