Defem Mesh Cable Trays
  • Features

    Defem is a complete cable tray system for the routing of power, data and control cables.
    Three finishes are available; electro-zinc, hot-dip galvanized and AISI316L acid-proof stainless steel.
    The standard mesh trays are available in four heights (45, 55, 60 and 110 mm) and eight widths (53, 75, 120, 220, 320, 422, 522 and 622 mm). The standard length is 2.5 m.
    For specific applications the range also includes specially shaped C-, G- and Z-mesh trays plus three different shapes of mini mesh trays.
    There is a complete range of supports for wall-mounted, floor-laid, ceiling-suspended and U-bar supported installations. Accessories such as bends, raisers, reducers, etc. are formed on site from length material elements.
    Thanks to the uniquely shaped well-rounded wire ends, the mesh trays comply with all safety requirements for installers and cables. In addition, the wire diameter design and size allow higher safety working-load values in comparison to any other product in the market.
