Our best-selling and most versatile labor-saving cable tray system is the 201 Series from Snake Tray. It can be mounted below access floors, wall mounted, ceiling mounted or suspended from a threaded rod. The 201 Series Snake Tray is available in six sizes (4 single tray and 2 double tray) and can hold up to 510 cables at 100% fill with up to 50 sq. in. of cable path. Better than a generic basket or ladder type tray, its patented top-mounted center spine allows you to easily bend the tray by hand to create both horizontal and vertical turns that help route cables over and around obstacles.

The 201 Series Snake Tray is available in four sizes, and features a single-pocket design that can accommodate up to 24 square inches of cable, which is equal to a 12" generic basket or ladder-type tray, or 250 cables with a .25" OD as per NEC Article 318-9(b). Standard length is 98”.

Mounting Rings, called Snake Eyes™ , are located along the Snake Tray's spine, allowing you to easily attachthreaded rods for suspended applications. Only one UL listed connector bolt (CM-CB-10) is required to join two trays together. A variety of mounting hardware options let you adapt Snake Tray to your specific needs: simple, easy-to-use wall brackets allow the 201 Series Snake Tray to be suspended off of vertical surfaces, and ST under-floor brackets attach the Snake Tray to access floor stanchion posts to create cable pathways in raised floor data center environments. Universities, Fortune 500 Companies and the US Government  already specify Snake Tray product to simplify and economize their cable tray installations... now you can, too!
