    How do you keep the cables tidy?

    I hate cables and when we have our new IT Suite built I'm hoping that a cable tidy system will be built in to it. In the meantime, we will be putting new gear into existing suites and I want to keep it as neat and tidy as possible without a lot of hassle. I thought about running this around Browse for Products | CPC to hide the cables. The 100mm x 50mm size would take extension sockerts as well. Unless anyone has a better idea.

    At the moment we have all the cables tidy using cable ties.. the cables go down under the desks behing the back panel.. so you cant see the cables. although we have some rooms where the cables can be seen as there is no back panel so we just do the best we can with cable ties.. looks pretty neat.

    But yh just cable ties here.

    If you put that trunking around for hiding the cables you still need to break out of it to plug the things in which is still going to look messy.

    I'd planned to hide the breakout holes directly behind the computers.

    I've seen similar stuff with regular breakouts - kind of looks like teeth - all the way along it. Really useful in these sort of situations; I'm having trouble finding it at the moment - anyone know what I mean and know where I can locate some? It came in all the standard trunking sizes if I remember rightly.

    ^ annoying site design, so I can't give you a direct link. Look for "slotted trunking".
