Basket is so much easier to bend and manipulate, no need for manufacturers bends, cut ends can be filed down easier, bolt cutters and a file is all you need.

Pretty bad installation in fact, sharp edges and not using the manufacturers T's and bends, I would have it taken out and re-done correctly.

Totally agree, so much easier & it looks better too

But will not take the weight that a tray will, horse's for course's as they say and what it looks like above a false ceiling or in a plant room is so important.

Having a laugh ain’t you, manufacturer’s bends would not fit in that situation.

Not having a laugh at all, been in the industry for over fifty years and seen professional electricians make something that will suit the situation without all the sharp angles and edges.

Thanks for all comments,will look @ the sharp edges everyone’s pointed out, & sort them if possible .
The install is T&E lsoh cable, & will be installed with due care.

Any Galv spray on them cuts 😉
Post automatically merged:

My only critique. Is look at the width of the cuts in the main tray run. They are a lot wider than the tray itself. When I have to fabricate a bend. I tend to cut the lip off and put a cut in the tray at the side meets bottom of the tray. In doing so allows you to form a gentle 45 degree corner. Rather than a hard 90. It’s hard to explain I’ll dig out a photo.
