Your company is planning to hold a meeting in a conference room. It is your responsibility to make sure enough power distribution units are available; and to ensure cables are properly placed to meet the safety requirements. What do you do? Luckily, there are many products and methods you can use to accomplish safe conference room cable management.


When setting up your company’s equipment for a meeting in the conference room, you should make sure there are enough electrical outlets available; and the outlets will not be overloaded.

If you need to add multiple outlets for appropriate power distribution in the conference room, there are surge protectors available that are designed for connecting up to seven AC adapters or plugs. These are great for conference room meetings because they can be placed in the center of a room or on a tabletop.

For the conference room tables, there are desktop outlets available that provide power connections; and still leave your desktop looking neat. Choose from built-in, removable, and pop up desk outlets.


When you are setting up the power distribution units for your conference room meeting, you need to be concerned about hiding cables from foot traffic. This is to protect the cables and for the safety of those attending the meeting. Use cable cover protection to hide cables in the conference room. It is kept secured to the floor with double-sided tape; and protects your cables while keeping the floors clear and safe.

An inexpensive way for hiding cables in the conference room is by using braided sleeving. It is very light and flexible, enabling you to place all your cables in one neat package. Raceways are also an easy solution for hiding cables. These can be placed along the wall’s baseboard or on the ceiling.


You not only want your cable covers to be hidden and protected in the conference room, but you also want your covers to look stylish. There are cord covers that come in bright yellow or red colors to make them more visible for pedestrian traffic; and pleasing to the eye. Using stylish cord covers can help to eliminate tripping hazards during the meetings. They are easy to set up and take down; and are great for any indoor event with low-volume foot traffic. The FastLane™ Drop Over Cable Protector works well in indoor environments, such as conference rooms, where there is low-volume traffic. It is durable and easy to set up.


Flexiduct Cord Protectors are flexible and provide great protection for your cables. The protectors are available in l5 and 25-foot lengths. They come in permanent fade and UV-resistant colors of brown, black, beige, gray, and safety yellow. Your company’s meetings should run more smoothly and have adequate power distribution, when using these numerous products; and follow the safety rules for powering a conference room.
