Cable Management

Proper cable management is crucial in both residential and commercial buildings to prevent hazards such as tripping, electrical fires and equipment damage. Cable management in buildings is the routing and protection of electrical and network cables to ensure safety, the efficient running of network services and so they look neat and tidy.

Appropriate cable supports, such as J-hooks, cable ties or straps, to secure cables at regular intervals and prevent sagging or strain on connection is essential.

Always try and avoid over-tightening cable ties to prevent damage to cable jackets or insulation.

Following this best practice, building owners and operators can ensure efficient, safe, and well-organized cable management in their properties. If you think you need help on an external decorations and cable management of your building, contact MCP and we would be happy to advise.
