from PC to a laptop, from monitor to printer, from office lamp to shredder – working in the office is unimaginable without power-operated devices. However, all of these devices also have one characteristic in common: their connection cables that can be covered using floor cable protector for instance. Here are practical methods of protecting your cables:
Cable Laying In The Floor Duct/Cable Bridge
It cannot always be avoided that loose cable frequently runs the walkways. These are, for example, doorways or the feed to an office table placed in the middle of the room. The risk of tripping and damage to the cables is exceptionally high here.
This can be remedied by a floor duct (cable bridge), which is also available from electrical retailers, the Internet, and well-stocked hardware stores. It also consists of a lower part and a removable, sure-footed upper part. This consists of plastic, aluminum, or stainless steel. The floor channel can be laid visibly or, for example, under textile carpeting. It also offers the advantage that the laid cables can be accessed and replaced at any time.
Underfloor Boxes And Outlets
Underfloor systems installed in the shell construction phase or subsequently in the cavity floor are functional but cannot be implemented everywhere. They contain ducts, mostly made of galvanized sheet steel, and equipment carriers with sockets, free equipment options, and cable outlets. With them, every supply cable can be brought to where it is needed.
Cable ducts are a variant available in many sizes. They can be made of plastic and are then called cable routing ducts. They can be mounted on the wall behind the desk or the underside of the desk. Cable management can be implemented in them very well because long cables can also be laid in loops.
Parapet ducts made of plastic or painted sheet steel are even more convenient. Their installation location is the wall height under the window sills. In this way, more extensive cabling can be established between several workstations. Parapet ducts provide the most space for cables, and they can also be equipped with sockets belonging to the system and empty device carriers for other components.
