Wire Cable Basket Liner


SKU LV-18-30-100

Our Wire Cable Basket Liner is designed to provide a solid surface for the bottom of cable baskets. 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.

Maximizing Efficiency and Safety: The Importance of Wire Cable Basket Liners

In the realm of cable management, ensuring the safety, organization, and longevity of wiring systems is paramount. Wire cable baskets are a popular choice for their flexibility and ease of access, allowing efficient routing and maintenance of cables in various settings. To enhance these systems further, wire cable basket liners are employed, offering crucial protection and additional benefits. This blog post will explore the functionality, advantages, and applications of wire cable basket liners, highlighting their essential role in effective cable management.

What are Wire Cable Basket Liners?

Wire cable basket liners are designed to fit snugly within wire basket trays, providing a protective covering that minimizes the risk of damage to the cables housed within. These liners are typically made from materials such as polyethylene, neoprene, or PVC, which are selected for their durability and protective properties.

Key Features:

Protection: Offers a smooth barrier against the sharp edges and joints of wire baskets.
Durability: Made from materials that resist wear, tear, and environmental impacts such as chemicals or extreme temperatures.
Flexibility: Easily adaptable to fit the contours and configurations of various wire basket designs.
Electrical Insulation: Enhances safety by providing additional electrical isolation to prevent shorts and other electrical hazards.

Benefits of Using Wire Cable Basket Liners

Incorporating wire cable basket liners into your cable management strategy delivers several significant advantages:

Improved Cable Protection

The primary benefit of wire cable basket liners is the protection they afford. By shielding cables from the metal structure of the basket, these liners prevent abrasion, punctures, and other physical damage that can compromise cable integrity and functionality.

Enhanced Safety

With their insulating properties, wire cable basket liners significantly reduce the risk of electrical faults. This safety feature is particularly crucial in environments where exposure to moisture or conductive contaminants could lead to electrical hazards.

Simplified Maintenance and Installation

Wire cable basket liners are designed for ease of installation, usually requiring no tools or complex procedures to fit into place. This simplicity not only speeds up initial setup but also facilitates easier maintenance and upgrades, as cables can be more readily accessed and managed.

Aesthetic and Organizational Benefits

Besides functional advantages, these liners can also improve the aesthetics of cable management systems, particularly in visible installations. They provide a cleaner, more organized appearance and can be customized in color to blend with or complement the environment.
