The new 601 Series of cable trays called Ladder Snake™ is especially designed for ladder racks. Ladder Snake™ instantly bends by hand without any cutting or clipping to ensure a smooth transition from one ladder rack to another. You just snap Ladder Snake™ 601 onto a new ladder to instantly gain greater cable capacity. You can also snap Ladder Snake (TN) 601 HP (half the depth of CM-601-12-8) onto an existing ladder rack to bridge over the existing cable plant to create a new second tier cable path. NO additional hardware or brackets are needed to attach to the ladder rack. Ladder Snake™ has an easy clip on feature to save you money and installation costs!


The 601 Series Ladder Snake is designed for installation on traditional ladder trays. Two styles of tray are available, one installs on new ladder tray increasing the cable carrying capacity of the tray and the other installs on existing ladder creating a second cable path above the legacy cable. The Ladder Snake offers up to 54 square inches of pathway and can accommodate up to 560 Data/Com cables at the prescribed NEC required 50% fill. As with all Snake Tray products, the 601 Series center spine is hand bendable, no clipping, cutting or tools required.
