Cables are needed everywhere, in all the rooms and to all the machines. The idea behind X-Tray cable trays is to manage your cable routing in a smart and well-thought-out way. Cable trays should also be easy to adapt, install and clean, as well as being cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing on the eye. The X-Tray cable routing system is also quick and easy to install.

X-Tray comes in all shapes and sizes in order to meet the differing needs and desires of our customers. Different customer segments have different needs. In a warehouse or similar, cable trays do not need to be stainless while in the food industry they need to be both stainless and acid-resistant for the sake of hygiene. The range consists of hot dip galvanized, stainless with no after-treatment, acid-resistant that copes with chemicals, black zinc to match a black machine guard or other equipment, and in a blue or blank zinc with a chrome finish.

Joints are usually the weakest link in a cable tray. In order to guarantee the best quality on the market our products undergo continuous testing. All trays are tested and certified as regards material, welds, load, identification, EMC, surface treatment, vibrations and fire. Tests include the E90 fire test, IEC 61537 and equipotential bonding. Axelent is also a member of EHEDG, a European non-governmental organisation aimed at promoting hygienic design and food technology to ensure safe consumer products.

X-Tray cable trays are flexible and can be built around ventilation and other systems, making it easy to adapt to your premises. It can also be aesthetically adapted. If, for example, you already have an X-Guard machine guard, X-Tray can be easily adapted to suit. A smart and elegant solution that requires no special tools.
