Enhancing industrial plant reliability with OBO cable trays

OBO Engineered Cable Trays emerge as stalwart protectors and organisers in industrial infrastructure.

In the modern industrial landscape, the integrity of power, data, and control cables is constantly threatened by a barrage of potential hazards. Factors like soiling, relentless vibrations, and other industrial variables create a challenging environment that demands resilient electrical installations. Recognising this critical need, OBO offers an engineered cable tray system that is a robust solution.

OBO’s cable tray system is designed to safeguard cables against corrosion while allowing for efficient heat dissipation. This ingenious design provides an open, organised space for cable routing, ensuring cables remain protected and operational even in the harshest conditions.

OBO offers two distinct surface variants for their engineered cable trays. The post-galvanised (FT) variant is tailored for rugged industrial environments, finding its place in machine and systems construction where durability is paramount. Conversely, the pre-galvanised (FS) surface is recommended for interior areas with less critical environmental demands.

In a world where industrial operations are only growing in complexity, OBO’s cable tray systems provide a reliable foundation for resilient electrical installations, ensuring that power, data, and control cables remain protected and operational in the face of formidable challenges.

Features making it apart

In the ever-evolving landscape of construction and infrastructure, OBO has emerged as a trailblazer with its state-of-the-art eco-friendly cable trays. These meticulously engineered trays redefine industry standards, delivering unparalleled performance and unmatched rigidity.

One of the standout features of OBO’s cable trays is their exceptional safety factor. They meet and exceed the Limit of Deflection, boasting an impressive 1.7 times safety margin. This reliability ensures peace of mind in even the most demanding environments.

Safety is paramount in any installation, and OBO’s cable trays provide just that. With a comprehensive Safe Working Load chart, these trays offer robust support over distances of up to 2.5 meters, making them suitable for various applications.


Manufactured through a fully automated process, OBO cable trays exhibit a uniform finish and the highest quality. This precision guarantees consistency and durability in every tray.

Offering versatility in design, OBO presents both perforated and unperforated cable trays in strip and hot dip galvanised versions. These trays adapt seamlessly to diverse installation needs, with side heights and widths ranging from 50mm to 500mm.

Ease of installation and maintenance is a priority for OBO. Including snap-fit covers simplifies these tasks, saving time and effort on-site.

OBO’s cable trays come with various accessories for those seeking tailored solutions, enabling weld-free and customised installations. This flexibility empowers engineers and builders to create systems that precisely meet their requirements.

OBO’s eco-friendly cable trays set a new benchmark in a world increasingly focused on sustainability and performance. Their innovative design, uncompromising safety, and adaptability make them a standout choice for construction projects of all scales. OBO continues to push boundaries, shaping the future of cable management in the industry.

Good reasons to choose OBO Cable tray systems

Selecting OBO Cable Tray Systems offers several compelling advantages. Firstly, incorporating a return flange arrangement significantly bolsters the cable tray’s mechanical stability, ensuring the secure containment of cables. Secondly, the utilisation of deep-drawn perforations enhances the cable tray’s durability and provides added protection to the enclosed cables, safeguarding them from potential damage.

Furthermore, OBO cable trays adhere to load performance standards outlined in IEC/IS regulations, assuring customers of their compliance with industry benchmarks for dependable cable management solutions. These factors collectively make OBO Cable Tray Systems a reliable and robust choice for cable management needs.
