Made in the U.S.A.

Tray sections made in the USA. Not some, not most, all of them. Other guys… not so much. Most supports made in the USA, yup again. Can we respond faster, yes, Do we use recycled content and domestic steel for potential LEED credits… but of course.

T-Weld

All our tray sections, round or shaped, custom lengths to 12’, come with a T-Weld edgewire. This insures safety for both the installer and the cabling from any sharp edges.

Custom Configurations

Need a custom or modified part for your particular installation? No problem. Our manufacturing capabilities allow WBT to provide custom parts and even tray configurations for your specific needs. Try getting that level of support and flexibility from your current supplier.

UL Certified

Ignore any marketing ‘noise’. WBT has the largest number of UL Classified sizes of tray. Check competitor’s 8” deep UL Classified trays. Only WBT offers this construction.

True Green Approach

Many companies today are marketing their products under a green banner. At WBT we have more than a story to tell.

We strive to use 100% recycled steel in the manufacturing of our tray sections. Our standard finish is a factory PreGalv finish. This avoids the post manufacturing chemicals used to the clean the tray and the metals then used to zinc plate the tray section or accessory. At WBT, our PreGalv is mechanically cleaned after the welding process to remove any soot or oils from the manufacturing process. The material is perfect for any indoor application, but much easier on the environment.

WBT’S GREEN POINTS
  • Strive to utilize 100% recycled steel content in the manufacturing of our products
  • Millcerts are available to document recycled content for possible LEED’s credits
  • No post production chemical plating (a huge environmental impact)
  • WBT utilizes Kraft packaging (no bleaching white). Packaging and strapping are recyclable
  • WBT’s catalog is printed on recycled paper with soy based inks
  • WBT plant operations and policies utilize solar and other minimal environmental impacts

If your specifications call for a post zinc plate, we also offer this within our standard expedited leadtimes.

Fastest Lead Times

We maintain inventory on most tray sizes and accessories, so standard inquiries can often be supported in hours, not weeks. Larger projects are supported in days versus competitor’s weeks.

Shaped Wire

WBT is the only company that can provide a tray system that can actually enhance performance and protect the cabling media, to ensure it can operate at the speed and bandwidth it was designed to.

Basket tray utilizing round crosswire is old technology. Round cables sitting on round supports offer little surface area supporting the wires. WBT shaped tray offers:

  • A Minimum of 400% Increase in Cabling Support
  • Up To 65% reduction in Cabling Pressure/Strain
  • 100% domestic Recycled Steel Content
  • 100% Domestic Manufactured Tray
  • No Premium over competitors ‘old round crosswire’ design

New Technologies

WBTransition:  Easily and professionally engineer tray vertical changes with no cutting or sharp points.

Flexible Divider:  You’re no longer chained to divider installation that moves 5 or 10 feet at a time, and only through straight runs. WBT’s Flexible Divider unrolls and install up to 250’ at a run, and oh yeah moves effortlessly through tray corners and bends.

Architectural Series

Many of today’s architects and engineers are incorporating painted tray as part of the design elements within a buildings interior. WBT is proud to introduce another industry first with our Architectural Series of painted tray. These unique finishes allow the client to add a design element to their cabletray.

  • Architectural Series are available in an almost unlimited variety of colors and textures.
