CABLE RACEWAY

Cable Racway — The raceway is a versatile product category made of flame-resistant PVC that is useful for hiding and protecting cables along walls and into ceilings. There are different types of raceway systems that are fitting for all room configurations, which can be cut to size. It comes in some standard colors including white, black and beige; and can be painted with a latex paint to match walls. A cable raceway may come in a one-piece unit, like the WireRun® Snapper® Raceway, which is a perfect general use raceway for walls and backs of entertainment centers. It has an adhesive backing that keeps it fastened to the wall. Once the cable is inserted, it latches shut. There are additional accessories available to navigate corners, such as elbow joints and three or four-way tees.


CORNER DUCTS RACEWAY

It can simulate the appearance of crown moldings on the ceiling while camouflaging speaker wires. It is backed with an adhesive strip or can be screwed into a surface for more holding power. Simply remove the cover, place the speaker wire into place and pop the cover back on to keep cables hidden. It comes with accessories to help cables navigate bends along walls.

It is thin and able to navigate a range of surfaces easily, including carpeted stairs. SafCord®, which is easy to store when it’s not being used, is both washable and reusable.

It even works in exterior settings — such as if your wires are out by your patio — with black, brown and gray the color choices in many of the duct types.

 

 


BRAIDED SLEEVES

Braided Sleeves — Cable sleeving can help to shroud and protect speaker cables. Many sleeves that work great for speaker wires are woven of Polyethelene Terephthalate (PET) monofilament yarns. This sleeving guards your wires against abrasions, cuts and temperature fluctuations. It is lightweight and flexible, able to form itself to your cable’s size. PET sleeving that is semi-rigid but split, covers long wire lengths, is easy to install and with its split design, can navigate turns along walls and flooring. Split cable sleeving with an even greater weave provides flexibility to take on curves in the wire’s path. Sleeving braided into a cotton loom-style, is a split tubing that remains quiet in settings where surfaces are noisy, protecting cables in high vibration environments.
