How can I avoid having cables trailing from desks?

Cable management in the workplace is key to providing a productive and health and safety compliant environment. Most desking solutions are sold with a limited cable management solution, some none. A simple solution may be a horizontal beam system for all your cables and power sockets along with cable ports in the desk top. Some desking systems also offer a vertical section of trunking to bring in cables from the floor. Effective cable management is essential for ease of use of your IT systems, there is an abundance of the solutions in the marketplace and here is our guide to all the latest products and solutions.

  1. Specially designed cable baskets to side under the desk to hold all the cables both power and data, this option is a cost-effective solution that keeps all the cables in one place, the basket can be easy removed if remedial works are needed for the IT equipment.

Under desk power modules are also a key element to help with the cable management and these firstly can be housed under the desks and sit in the cable basket, generally used when PC and tower units are used by the client.
