Cord Covers & Cable Protectors
Cable ramps and wire protectors are a necessary part of setting up your electronic connections. Floor cable protectors protect your wires and cables from damage that is inevitable, such as pedestrian foot traffic and heavy vehicular traffic. Failing to protect your cables can result in damaged merchandise and increased repair or replacement costs. For this reason, it's more effective and cost-efficient in the long run to invest in proper floor cable management and cord protection. At Cable Ties And More, we offer a wide range of floor cable covers that vary in size, material, and density to suit your coverage needs. Some of our most popular floor cord covers include heavy duty cable protectors, medium duty cable covers, light capacity wire covers, drop over cord covers, rubber duct wire covers, and carpet cable covers. We also offer ADA cable protectors, cable bridges, Connectrac wireways, cross-link bridges, and the Chewsafe™ line for pets.
Heavy duty cable ramps and heavy duty wire covers are a great option if you are looking to protect cables and wires in more externally-traumatic environments. Intense pedestrian and vehicular traffic require the use of heavy duty cable covers to withstand constant pressure of heavyweight being applied in order not to damage them. Heavy duty cable mats are designed with a high maximum load capacity to withstand the stress placed on the cable ramps. Heavy duty cable covers are therefore best used for active outdoor locations like busy streets and intersections. However, Industrial indoor sites such as warehouses or factories are also widespread.
Medium duty cord covers are another great option for protecting cables from heavy foot traffic. A little less durable than heavy duty cable ramps, medium duty cable covers, and medium duty wire covers are an excellent choice for pedestrian-crowded places like schools, shopping malls, and parks. Medium duty floor cord covers and medium duty floor wire covers protect the appliances needed, without disrupting pedestrian movement. Alternatively, rubber duct cord covers are another medium capacity option.
Light capacity cable covers are the ideal option for areas with lighter traffic and less external trauma, such as offices and homes. While medium duty cable ramps can withstand infrequent vehicular crossings, light capacity floor cord covers and light capacity floor cable covers are meant for less aggressive environments. Because of their thinner density, light capacity wire covers are designed with appearance in mind. They are easy to assemble and aesthetically pleasing, making light capacity cable ramps the perfect indoor option.
Plastic cord covers and plastic cable ramps are another option for homes and offices. Plastic cable covers provide a similarly attractive appearance as light capacity cord covers, while also being cost-efficient. While plastic floor cable covers protect a large amount of wires, plastic wire covers for walls are also available (and convenient).
Tape and carpet cable covers offer a unique and flexible option for protecting cables abd wires located inconveniently. Tape and carpet wire covers come in handy when cables lie on fabric surfaces. Any other hard-surfaced covers, such as plastic floor cord covers, can be unsuitable and unattractive. For this reason, carpet floor cord covers and carpet floor cable covers are especially popular options. Flexibility is another perk of using carpet cord covers, as the material is not nearly as rigid as other varieties. For these reasons, carpet cable ramps are an ideal option for many.
Drop over cord covers are an easy and no-fuss way of protecting your cords and wires. They are Dense enough to stay in place while also being easy to install, drop over cable covers provide quick and simple protection for your floor cables. The convenience and effectiveness of drop over floor cord covers make them an ideal choice when looking for fast and convenient solutions for protecting your floor wires. Drop over wire covers are also available in a variety of materials to suit any environment. A similar option to drop over cable ramps is cable bridges, covering floor cables just as quickly and conveniently.
Cord and cable covers that are accommodating with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) are especially important in keeping an environment inclusive. All of our cord covers in this section offer excellent protection while remaining ADA compliant, easily withstanding heavy vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
Other cable protection options we offer are:
Connectrac wireways are the perfect solution to protect wires in AV, telecom, or power connectivity. They are meant for floor and carpet surfaces, blending in seamlessly while keeping cables organized and centralized. Connectrac wireways are sourced from resilient aluminum and maintain a low profile, making them a versatile and reliable option when choosing cord covers.
AMS Cable protectors, also known as cross link bridges, can be considered the most customizable structure of cable covers. They are perfect for situations where wires and cables are regularly installed and uninstalled, such as events and productions. They are designed to have connectable sections that can conveniently latch onto one another, depending on how large or vast the cable cover needs to be. Despite their versatility, they remain durable and manage to keep cables neat and organized.
The ultimate in home cable protection technology, the Chewsafe™ line of products we offer are engineered to make cords and cables virtually unchewable for pesky teething pets. They provide a citrus scent and a bitter taste to deter pets from chewing, protecting both the wires and the pets from any harm. Made from heavy-gauge medical grade tubing, these cable protectors are a fantastic solution for in-home cable protection.
