Data Center Conveyances and Pathways
When it comes to concealing cables within the unseen spaces in your data center, there are a couple of options: overhead or beneath the raised floor. It’s important to ensure your cables aren’t inhibiting airflow and thereby causing thermal issues. Many data center managers opt to keep the area under the raised floor clear to allow for cool air to travel unimpeded, meaning they choose to run cables overhead.
Whatever you choose for your data center or colocation space, Instor teams up with Legrand, Chatsworth, Panduit and Cooper B-line to provide the best conveyance and pathway systems for your cable infrastructure. We not only design, but also install protection for your structured cabling with support from ladder racks, cable trays and fiber troughs.

Data centers are packed with cables. The method of using a standard steel runway is giving way to more vertical solutions such as basket-style cable trays, which provide support and can even serve as a grounding conductor if needed. Instor offers wire mesh and other basket trays from Legrand, Chatsworth Products, Panduit and Cooper B-line to provide quick and easy solutions to protect cables while maximizing network uptime.
Instor also offers a variety of ladder racks for network cabling drops as well as turns and unusual angles. When you need to support and run cable bundles between closets, racks and cabinets (not to mention along walls), a ladder rack runway system from Legrand, Chatsworth, Panduit or Cooper B-line will help solve your problems, maximizing space utilization and cable density.
Though seemingly simple accessories, fiber trough trays carry a heavy load, literally. Using a combination of steel and PVC components, fiber troughs provide a reliable, durable solution in even the harshest of data center environments. Instor offers fiber troughs from Chatsworth, Panduit and Legrand for all your needs, including design and installation.
