Technology can be great, but when your workspace becomes cluttered with wires and cables it can become an impediment to productivity, increase stress levels, and pose serious health hazards such as electrocution. Under desk cable management should always be implemented when working in hybrid offices to prevent potential health hazards from being exposed.
Unfortunately, it doesn't need to be difficult; there are several solutions on the market to assist in creating an organized workspace. From DIY solutions created from scrap materials to pre-made kits with accessories that help keep everything tidy, there are numerous tools out there designed to help get your workspace in top condition.
First step should be reducing cable lengths whenever possible by wrapping or tying them off, helping prevent them from tangling, tripping over, or becoming too long. Also essential is eliminating loose excess cable which could create trip hazards and cause damage.
As another solution for under desk cable management, spiral wrap or tie can help bundle and organize cords more manageably while at the same time concealing them better than basic cable hooks or zip ties.
An alternative solution for desk applications would be purchasing a cable tray, available in various varieties for desk use. Cable trays offer many advantages over desk covers in terms of ease of installation and superior cable concealment; plus they feature sleek designs. Plus they can easily be moved around to new positions instead of needing unscrew and reattach the clips before shifting them!
