Cables are used for a range of different things in the office, including power, internet connectivity and more. In fact, there are so many cables that it is quite easy for them to get out of hand if they are not managed properly. Improper cable management could lead to certain safety issues as well as damage to the cables themselves. So, we’ve compiled a list of ways for you to organise your cables! Read all about how to achieve sleek and safer network cable management in your business below:
Having strands of cable laying freely across walkways is an accident waiting to happen. Cord covers are a great preventative measure against tripping and falling or damaging the cables. These covers are usually created from rubber or PVC and are a great way of making the office space feel neat and safe, even when there are cables everywhere.
Braided sleeving is a great product to use when trying to keep cables bundled together. The sleeve simply expands to receive the cables and contracts to fit them once they are in place. These braided sleeves are very similar to wire loom but have a much softer appearance and are created from a fabric.
Everyone knows the struggles of having to kick cables away from their feet when sitting at their desk, only to accidentally pull a cable out in the process. Well, struggle no longer as the J channel is a fantastic tool for keeping all the wires out of your way. These adhesive strips allow you to tuck your cables in neatly under your desk or around the edge of your desk.
If you have cables on your desk that are unplugged at the end of the day, the best way to stop them from falling all over the place is to make use of a binder clip. This clip will hold the cable in place until you came back to use it in the morning.
While labels won’t keep your cables out of the way, it will allow you to keep them organised by always knowing what each cable is for. This will ensure that you never pull out the wrong cables and that you will find the cable you need quickly.
