Cable Tray Plastic Sheet


SKU LV-18-30-100

Our Cable Tray Plastic Sheet is designed to provide a solid surface for the bottom of cable 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.

Revolutionizing Cable Management: The Role of Cable Tray Plastic Sheets

In the intricate world of electrical installations, the importance of robust cable management systems cannot be understated. Cable trays are a fundamental component of these systems, offering a structured and secure method for housing and routing cables. Enhancing these systems, cable tray plastic sheets provide an additional layer of protection and organization. This blog post will explore the features, benefits, and applications of cable tray plastic sheets, showcasing their essential role in modern cable management.

What are Cable Tray Plastic Sheets?

Cable tray plastic sheets are durable overlays designed to fit inside or cover cable trays. These sheets are typically made from high-quality plastic materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), or polycarbonate. They are engineered to protect cables from physical damage and environmental factors, while also simplifying the installation and maintenance of cable systems.

Key Features:

Durability: Resistant to impact, chemical erosion, and extreme temperature fluctuations.
Protective Barrier: Acts as a guard against dust, debris, and moisture.
Flexibility: Easily cut and adjusted to fit various cable tray sizes and shapes.
Non-Conductive: Provides excellent electrical insulation to enhance safety.

Benefits of Using Cable Tray Plastic Sheets

Cable tray plastic sheets offer a myriad of advantages that enhance the functionality and lifespan of cable management systems:

Enhanced Cable Protection

The primary benefit of these plastic sheets is the superior level of protection they offer. By shielding cables from physical contact with potentially sharp edges of metal trays, the sheets prevent abrasion, cuts, and other damage. This protective measure is crucial in prolonging the life of cables and reducing the likelihood of electrical faults.

Improved Safety

With their non-conductive properties, cable tray plastic sheets help in minimizing the risk of electrical hazards, such as shorts and sparks, especially in environments where moisture and chemical exposure are prevalent. This added layer of insulation is essential for maintaining safety standards and preventing accidents.

Ease of Installation and Maintenance

Plastic sheets are lightweight and easy to handle, making them straightforward to install. They can be custom cut to fit any tray design, facilitating a quick setup. Furthermore, their smooth surface makes them easy to clean, reducing maintenance time and costs.

Aesthetic Uniformity

In environments where the visual appearance of cable management systems matters, such as in commercial or residential buildings, cable tray plastic sheets offer a neat and cohesive look. They can be produced in various colors to match the surrounding décor, enhancing the overall aesthetic of the installation.
