Under Desk Cable Management Services

Office and desk moves are often carried out with little consideration for the numerous data and power cables which are part of today’s workplace. Desks move, but under desk cable management is often forgotten, resulting in a spaghetti of cables beneath the desks.

Improving your office space

The cable spaghetti looks untidy and doesn’t support the expectations of a professional, clean and tidy office, but there are much more serious implications.
Poorly located cables can be a trip hazard, and with slipping or tripping the most common cause of major injury in UK workplaces, this is a hazard that needs to be removed to ensure compliance with the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.

Poorly located electrical cables are often run over by chairs, or walked across by employees, resulting in damage to the wires that can cause a fire. Fires in the workplace can have devastating impact on a business so minimising damage and regular inspection of cabling is critical.

Damaged cables can also affect network speed and prevent computers connecting at all. Frustrated employees result, who waste time trying to resolve the issue, reducing their efficiency. When equipment needs to be replaced, searching through a jumble of cables makes the task much slower, and unpleasant due to the trapped dirt. The dust and dirt is also a potential ignitor for the sparks that can arise from damaged cables.

Cable tidy process

Active Communication Company Limited (ACCL) provides a under desk cable management service. ACCL engineers tidy all cables from floor boxes and perimeter sockets right through and under desks, to remove the potential for trips; prevent cable damage; remove fire hazards; and create the tidiness that may act as a spur to act on other areas of the workplace. The engineers also inspects all the sockets, especially those currently carrying under-desk power, to ensure double-sockets and extension leads are eliminated. Once a cable tidying exercise has been completed, ACCL advises that a protocol is established so that no-one apart from the FM or IT teams can plug-in new equipment.
