corner-raceways-medFor all of you cable management fans who admire the qualities of standard surface raceway but wish it were a little more decorative, I’d like to introduce Cornerduct 1150 Series Raceways. These cord channels route cables and wiring along your walls just like any other raceway, but they have the added bonus of being (true to their name) designed for use in corners.

Able to be mounted either vertically (for floor-to-ceiling cable runs) or horizontally (to route cables from one end of the room to the other), Cornerduct has a snap-on cover that makes it easy to install and update wiring. And if you’ve ever wished you could have the luxury of crown molding without the expense and effort, this is the chance you’ve been waiting for! With its triangular, corner-fitting shape and smooth, slightly curved cover, Cornerduct works as both an inexpensive and super functional “fake-out” crown molding. As a matter of fact, you can even custom paint it with latex paint to match the rest of your decor – no one will suspect a thing.

Cornerduct is made from a UL compliant, flame-resistant PVC, so in addition to it being durable, it’s also safer to have around the house. And while it can be used in any room of the house, we recommend it for hiding A/V cable is your living room, home theater, or bedroom.

  2. This product is very intriguing. However, I do not see a connector to connect a vertical corner run to a pair of ceiling horizontal runs going both directions out of the ceiling corner. Also, how does one make a drop down to a speaker from the ceiling to a speaker? That is how would I exit out of the channel in mid length?

    The Inside Corner and Tee reducers show a raised section on the ends to cover the seam, does one end of the 5ft. lengths have the same? Or would I need to purchase another piece to hide the seams between the 5 foot sections?

    Is there a price break for purchasing 15 pieces of the SRCD1075-W5FT?

    Thank you.

    Ken

  4. Hi Ken,

    I looked into your horizontal/vertical corner connection question, and unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a connector configured to do that – but it would be perfect if there were! It would just make sense!

    On the bright side, it’s easy to make mid-channel dropdowns to speakers and other components. The “tee reducers” on the Corner Duct page are for exactly that purpose – the only catch is that you need to use both Corner Duct and standard surface raceway (but really, that makes sense, because you wouldn’t want a wedge-shaped channel running down the middle of a wall). So if you have Corner Duct running in the wall/ceiling corner joint, all you need to do is punctuate the run (wherever you need to) with one of these connectors, and you can drop a length of standard raceway from the Corner Duct down to your speakers. It’s very easy – you just need to make sure you order the tee reducers and standard raceway in the same size.

    And as for the seam coverage issue… most surface raceways have simple connectors that join 2 lengths together and then cover the seam, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for Corner Duct. They just install end-to-end, but if you’re placing them in a ceiling joint, at least they’d be far enough above people’s heads that seams shouldn’t be too visible.

    Good luck with your project!
