Term of the Day: Wire Management
For those of you who are not familiar with it let me give you a brief definition of ‘wire management’ and how it relates to cable protectors and cord covers. It is the management of wires, cables, hoses, and basically anything else used to connect two objects. Here's an example: you power up your generator, place it 70 feet away (according to code) from your building and run the power cord to your appliances. That 70 feet of cord is now exposed not only to pedestrians who can trip over it, but also to vehicles that can destroy it, causing you to lose the power being supplied from the generator, not to mention numerous other safety hazards. A more common example can be found in your office, where you station a device such as a printer or a coffee maker but of course, there are no nearby power outlets! Now you're left with a cord snaking around on the ground, just waiting to be tripped over. Warehouse environments are another location where wire management is absolutely necessary; countless items need to be plugged into the wall and positioned elsewhere, but a forklift would simply tear the power cords to shreds!
Q. Now that you know Cable Protectors are a necessity, what is the solution?
A. Cables and wires just lying unprotected on the ground can result in unnecessary and irreversible damage to your equipment, not to mention the safety issues that they impose on pedestrians. In essence, a small investment could eliminate down time amongst your staff and/or crew, inconvenience to you and your customers, and prevent personal injury.
Q. Why are the Rubber Duct Cord Covers a great solution?
A. With their low profiles, variety of styles and durable construction, Rubber Ducts are superior to plastic cord covers and much more affordable than polyurethane. And, 8 out of 9 rubber duct models can withstand vehicular traffic! Why are rubber ducts better than plastic cord covers? Because they always lay flat, they can withstand high volume traffic, and they have a much higher resistance to wear and tear damage.
Q. Who uses/sells/buys Cord Covers?
A. Everyone! Cord covers are mainly used by electrical contractors and distributors, electricians, DJ's and musicians, and are used in environments such as carnivals, sporting events, and offices. However, anywhere there is a generator, appliances, or just cables on the ground, there is a need for a cord cover. Wire management is becoming a necessity because it makes life simpler and safer.
