Aluminum Ladder Cable Trays

Ladder cable trays are the most common cable tray solution for supporting and protecting power and control cables. As the name suggests, these cable trays mimic the rungs of a ladder. US Tray manufactures strong and lightweight, aluminum ladder cable trays of the highest quality.

You can also establish an equipment grounding conductor with ladder cable trays. Ideal for holding larger cables, they’re often used for construction and upgrades in automotive, power, commercial, oil and gas, and industrial verticals.



I-Beam Ladder Cable Trays

Welded aluminum I-beam ladder cable trays are a core solution and an iconic design in the cable tray industry. The I-beam design is the most common cable tray construction.

Our aluminum, I-beam ladder cable trays feature 3-inch tangents and are easily connectable with our fittings and accessories.
