Cope Cable Tray

Cope Quick-Latch™ saves up to 40% installation time when connecting two wire baskets.

New Bedford, MA (September 24, 2018) – Cope,® the original brand of cable tray, announced today that its Quick-Latch™ product was recognized as a Silver Honoree in the “Cable Protection and Management” category by Cabling Installation & Maintenance’s Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience.

Cope Quick-Latch™ saves up to 40% installation time when connecting two wire baskets. The typical wire basket design comes with a pre-attached splice plate, multiple field cuts, or manufacturing fittings that can leave perfectly usable pieces of wire basket without any splice bar. Cope Quick-Latch™ utilizes these pieces and eliminates cost, labor, and time when splicing these parts together.
"This prestigious program allows Cabling Installation & Maintenance to recognize the most innovative products and leaders serving the structured cabling industry,” said Alan Bergstein, publisher of Cabling Installation & Maintenance. “Our 2018 Honorees are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact in the industry."

The Innovators Awards are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Innovative
  • Value to the User 
  • Sustainability
  • Meeting a Defined Need 
  • Collaboration 
  • Impact

The 2018 Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovators Awards Honorees will be featured in the November Issue of the magazine.
