What is cable management?
Cable management is the organisation and tidying up of power, data, video and other cables in your workplace. This also includes heavy industry sites, warehouses and factories. But in those environments the health & safety implications of cable management (should!) already be high on the agenda. So here we’re going to concentrate on cable management in the office-related environment.
Cable management comes in many different forms. Most modern desks come with (limited) built-in cable management capabilities. For example, grommets in the desk or cable covers that let you run cables down below the desktop. But then what? You can make use of a wide variety of inexpensive cable management accessories that keep cables around your desk tidy and out of harm’s way.
