Wiremesh vs. Conduit

A closer look at wire mesh vs. conduit for food & beverage facilities

Open Up The Possibilities

A cable system needs to do more than simply hold the cables and deliver them across a facility; it must protect the system and production.
Save up to 40% in costs when you choose wire mesh over conduit

3 Reasons An Open System Outperforms Conduit In Food & Beverage Plants

Conduit-Wiremest

Easier to clean than conduit

An open system is easy to inspect for dirt and contamination, unlike conduit that needs to be disassembled. It’s also easier to clean, which is ideal for plants with frequent washdowns. Side mounting of the cable tray can reduce the area where dust and debris can settle.

Conduit-Wiremest

An open system doesn't trap moisture

Because the system is not enclosed, it’s much safer than conduit. Moisture won’t accumulate and drain into electrical enclosures, potentially causing equipment deterioration or failure. There’s also no pathway for toxic, corrosive or explosive gasses to travel through.

Conduit-Wiremest

Stainless steel resists corrosion

Wire mesh cable tray is made from passivated stainless steel that meets non-corrosion directives in accordance with the National Sanitation Foundation. It’s 3x more resistant to chlorine, removes all contamination from processing and is easy to test for contamination.

We pickle and passivate our stainless steel to create a premium alloy that is resistant to corrosion from cleaning processes or agents, keeping installations cleaner and longer-lasting.
