Comparison of Total Installed Costs - Snap Track vs. Conduit
Many of the advantages typically associated to ladder trays apply equally to ventilated channel trays. As with other types of cable trays “soft” cost savings are often achieved during design, procurement, and maintenance. When ventilated channel trays are compared directly to conduit, quantified savings from material and labor are similar to studies comparing larger conduit and ladder tray. This study, as well as other numerous studies comparing ladder tray to conduit, indicate potential total installed cost savings approaching or exceeding fifty percent (50%).
When Snap Track is compared to traditional ventilated channel trays an additional 15-20% savings can be obtained. These additional savings are primarily derived by reducing the number of supports, reducing field fabrication, and the labor required for assembly.
