Introduction
Metstrut enjoys the technical expertise of over 60 years of cold roll forming and structural design associated with the market leader status of the Metsec Building Products Division. This has led to the development of fully integrated products and systems for use within the construction industry that provide innovative and cost effective solutions for the support of mechanical and electrical services in an increasingly demanding market. Metstrut Cable Tray has been developed after significant consultation with major installers to ensure the systems meet and surpass key requirements. The unique perforation pattern allows ease of attachment for cables with more than adequate ventilation and the return flanges of the medium and heavy duty systems are cable friendly. There are three ranges to choose from, each a total system with a wide selection of support accessories to provide comprehensive site installation solutions: Return flange - medium duty 25mm high overall Return flange - heavy duty 50mm high overall None return flange -light duty 12mm & 18mm high overall (See product pages for widths) Side walls of the medium and heavy duty ranges are slotted for all widths of tray as standard.

Safe working loads are represented graphically as shown and are based on the cable tray being continuous over four spans or more. Deflection has been limited to SPAN/200 generally, based on the end span condition as the worst case. Deflection will be less than this on internal spans. However, on wider trays, additional deflection will be induced locally across the base of the tray, depending on the width of the tray and the load distribution across the width. This will not be detrimental to the structural performance of the tray but may need consideration if appearance is of prime importance.
