Desk cable management

No installation is complete without desk cable management. This is a nice finishing touch to your job and the customer’s workplace will look professional and be more productive. Why not further impress your customer with this addition? Here are some tips on how to approach desk cable management.

Shorten lengthy cables by wrapping them up

Wrap up lengthy cables with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape before plugging them in.

Shortening long cables is one of the most effective ways to keep them tidy and VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is adjustable and reusable. This is helpful for moves, adds and changes whenever technology needs to be upgraded.

ONE-WRAP® Tape is a preferable bundling solution for safety loops, in the event cables need to be extended for future changes. The flexible fasteners are easy to unfasten and reduce stress on the cable and terminations if the pathway is pulled on.

By keeping cables tidy, the work environment will be more productive and professional-looking.

Identify Cables with Multiple Colors

Among all the cables connecting control panels, computers, projectors and more, you don’t want to confuse yourself and your customers on which pathways are which. With 13 different colors, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is an easy solution to identify specific pathways with color-coordination. You can use green for phones, orange for data, red for electrical or create your own coding system.

If labeling your cables is preferred, custom labels can be requested on VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape.

Mount devices to walls and desks

Mounting devices

Fix power strips, remotes and controls to desks and walls with VELCRO® Brand Professional Series adhesive-backed fasteners. This will keep these devices out of sight and they’ll be easy to peel off for frequent usage and potential upgrades and replacement.

The VELCRO® Brand Professional Series provides tools that ease the process of installing and maintaining cable pathways and spaces, including desk cable management.
