Hoffman Clean Tray(TM) Stainless Steel Type 1 Cable Tray Accommodates Custom Runs, Protects Against Washdown
Anoka, MN-December 15, 2008-Hoffman announces its expanded line of CLEAN TRAY(TM) UL Type 1 Stainless Steel Cable Tray for power and data cable management in sanitary food and beverage processing and packaging environments. CLEAN TRAY protects rated cabling and features a unique sloped-top sanitary design that minimizes dirt, debris and mold build-up in addition to facilitating ease-of-cleaning. Now, the CLEAN TRAY line also includes numerous new sloped-top fittings, variable angle fittings and telescopic straight sections that translate to greater installation savings and optimal sanitary performance.
As stricter requirements for a clean design are implemented to further promote sanitary conditions in food, beverage and pharmaceutical environments, data and cable management systems must also be updated to accommodate these changes and facilitate cleaning, said Rita Bejjani, Hoffman Commercial Product Manager.
