How do cable trays perform in fire conditions?

To uncover the answer to this question, we have conducted tests on cable tray systems in different materials. Through these tests the aim was to learn more about thermal conductivity properties in fire conditions and what effects it would have on the tray itself and how long the installed cable could maintain circuit integrity.

There are several material choices available for cable trays in today’s market, the most popular choices are steel (HDG/SS), aluminum, PVC and FRP/GRP. However, there is not a common consensus on how these material types compare to each other in fire conditions. So, we put them to test!

Take a look at the video to find out how the different materials performed. You might be surprised by the results!
