Hiding Cables in A Computer Lab

By: CableOrganizer®

Many students and computers are simultaneously in your classroom when you teach in a computer lab. This also means you typically have multiple cables and wires along the floor. These students are often in a hurry and not paying attention, which increases the potential of stumbling over computer cables. There are many solutions available from CableOrganizer® to mitigate this safety hazard.


Cable covers such as floor cord covers are exactly what you need for this problem. They are very easy to install and designed to protect your cables, preventing them from being replaced early. These covers are very economical and will easily fit into your school’s budget.

You can choose cable covers to match the carpet in your classroom, and if safety is a big issue, a bright yellow color is available. The covers are also slip resistant, which will reduce the chance of tripping accidents.

CableOrganizer® additionally has curated kits, including those that organize desks. This kit has items already handpicked for each desk, including a cable tray, power strip, charging station, cable clips, and braided sleeving, to organize desk cables and wires. The Desk Cable Management Kit offers significant savings, versus purchasing every item separately. These products will greatly reduce students from tripping over cables and other devices that might slip out from under their desk.


Since the cables on the computers in your lab are changed often, you can use VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® General Purpose Cable Wraps. These are cable ties that can be easily refastened and will not damage your cables. They also come in a variety of colors that will make organizing cables easier.

Another great product for organizing cables in your computer lab is braided sleeving. Braiding sleeving is expandable up to 150%, which allows you to slide sleeving over a large cable, bunch of cables, and connectors.

Cable clips, ties, and straps keep cables neat and organized, even if there are multiples bundled together. In your lab where your computer network is constantly changing, cable ducts — also called wire ducts — are available to help route your cables, which makes your lab more efficient.

With all the products available to assure safety for you and your students, your computer lab can become accident-free.
