Cable Tray Liner


SKU LV-18-30-100

Our cable tray liner is designed to provide a solid surface for the bottom of wire trays. This helps to prevent the snagging of cables and wiring. The high density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) provides a smooth surface which allows for the easy passing of cabling and is flexible, allowing the plastic to conform to various tray features. The material is easily cut with a utility knife which makes customizing the liner to various cutouts and openings simple and straight forward. 

Available in both 30 mil and 40 mil thicknesses, our cable tray liner is available in a wide variety of roll widths ranging from 18” - 48” and in 100’ roll lengths. Our liner is made in the USA and ships from Kansas City.

*The widest HDPE roll that we offer is currently 5’ (60 inches).

Please note that we are unable to provide custom roll lengths.

Enhancing Cable Management with Cable Tray Liners

In the world of electrical installations, the importance of managing cables efficiently and safely cannot be overstated. Cable tray systems play a fundamental role in achieving this, providing a robust framework for routing and supporting numerous cables. To further optimize these systems, cable tray liners are employed, offering additional protection and functionality. This blog post delves into the specifics of cable tray liners, their benefits, and their integral role in modern cable management systems.

What are Cable Tray Liners?

Cable tray liners are protective sheets or layers designed to line the inside of cable trays. These liners are typically made from durable materials like rubber, PVC, or neoprene, each chosen for its specific properties like flexibility, durability, and resistance to various environmental factors. The primary purpose of these liners is to create a smooth, protective barrier between the cable and the tray, enhancing the overall safety and longevity of the cable system.

Key Features:

Resilience: Highly resistant to tears, punctures, and environmental wear.
Flexibility: Adaptable to various shapes and configurations of cable trays.
Chemical Resistance: Capable of withstanding exposure to oils, acids, and other corrosive substances.
• Electrical Insulation: Adds an extra layer of protection, reducing the risk of electrical hazards.

Benefits of Using Cable Tray Liners

The integration of cable tray liners into your cable management system brings several key advantages:

Enhanced Cable Protection

One of the most significant benefits of using cable tray liners is the protection they offer against physical damage such as abrasion, cuts, and wear. This is especially crucial in environments where cables are exposed to rough surfaces or sharp edges of metal trays, which could compromise the cable's integrity.

Increased Safety

Cable tray liners contribute to safer installations by providing additional electrical insulation and reducing the likelihood of electrical faults. This is vital in settings where even minor electrical issues can lead to significant safety hazards.

Simplified Maintenance and Installation

These liners are designed to be easy to install, often coming in rolls or pre-cut sections that fit neatly into existing cable trays. This ease of installation reduces labor time and costs. Additionally, their smooth surface makes cleaning and maintenance more straightforward, helping to keep the cable system in optimal condition.

Aesthetic Improvement

Beyond functionality, cable tray liners help in achieving a cleaner, more organized look within cable trays. This is particularly important in settings where the visual aspect of cable management is a concern, such as in commercial or public spaces.
