What is Wire Duct, and what separates it from raceway and other cable management solutions? Typically, it refers to a wire trough that easily allows for organization, pulling and separation of cables. Often it features a sliding cover and "fingers" on the side that create slots for cables to be added, removed or rerouted along the length of the run. The openings on slotted wire ducts feature rounded edges to protect wires and hands from cuts and abrasions. Solid wire duct units are available to protect sensitive cables and electrical wiring from debris, dust and other outside contaminants. Installation is accomplished via drilling or adhesive mounting.
