Cable Management

Cable management entails the installation of equipment to secure cables for electrical services in buildings to ensure that they can be used without difficulties. Well-organised cable management means that cables are easy to maintain after installation and that if necessary, data cables can be easily added, removed or moved at a later date. One way to avoid confusion is to label cables, sometimes with a colour coding system. Related cables can be tied together with cable ties while cable trays may be installed as a way to both organise and protect cables. Cable clips could be used to attach cables around doorways or to the bottom of walls. To ensure that the cables function correctly, requirements regarding the safe bend radius (especially with copper or fibre optic cables) should be met. Power and data cables should meet at right angles to minimise electromagnetic interference. Cable management is an essential aspect of any business requiring the installation of different cable networks. It is especially important in companies concerned with Information Technology, telecommunications and power distribution, which often need to run large numbers of electronic devices. Some householders also recognise the need for cable management especially for home entertainment appliances.
