Cablofil universal ‘Hang On’ drop out (UDO) from Legrand
The Cablofil Universal “Hang On” Drop Out (UDO) from Legrand offers an ideal support solution for running cables in high capacity data centers. Cable management is a crucial element to keep data centers supported and running, but it is a challenge to run expansive lengths of cable without compromising the support of wire mesh cable trays at the cable dropout location. The UDO makes it easy to perform cable drops directly off the side of the tray without having to make any cuts or modifications, allowing users to maintain the strength of the tray. “Ideal for copper, fiber-optic or PoE cabling, the UDO can support and protect large cable bundles with ease,” says the company.

New 5-inch load depth for COPE-GLAS rugged cable trays
Cope recently announced a new 5-inch load depth for its COPE-GLAS cable tray, enhancing the line of existing 2-, 4-, and 6-inch depths. Made of permanently bonded continuous glass filament coated with reinforced polyester (or vinyl ester resin) and alternating layers of glass mat, the COPE-GLAS cable tray is inherently chemical-resistant. This ability to withstand severely corrosive environments and improved weatherability can extend product life expectancy and dramatically reduce tray installation lifecycle costs. The COPE-GLAS cable tray is strong and lightweight, allowing it to be installed quickly and easily. Because there are no sharp edges or burrs, long runs of armored cable can be installed with less chance for cable damage. Each straight section is designed with pre-punched holes to easily accept the splice plate fastener. Available in 10- or 20-foot lengths, the product meets Underwriters Laboratories Fiberglass Cable Tray Standard UL 568.
