Cable Tray Field Modification and Code Compliance

In the early 1970s, a new form of cable tray was introduced to the European market. Wire mesh basket tray promised savings in both materials and labor and gained considerable success in Europe through the mid-1990s when the concept was exported to the United States. The introduction of basket tray to the U. S. was focused almost entirely on telephone and computer cabling system applications because that market offered less resistance than the electrical power market.1 Voice and data jobs often required no electrical permits or inspections so there was little regulatory oversight from AHJs.
