As an electrician, you know that cable organization is important for not only the current task, but any future jobs as well. The way you bundle cables can make or break the overall aesthetic quality of your work which can be the difference between a customer requesting your services again or never hearing from them again.
Why You Should Care About Cable Management
Cable management, an electrical service, is the utilization of equipment to secure cables to a surface. Securing cables prevents “cable spaghetti”—cables that are tangled which makes them difficult to distinguish during electrical work. Cable spaghetti can result in the wrong cable being unplugged or worse, cables being bent out of shape affecting their function. Leaving cables disorganized makes the initial finished product look less than stellar and it will also make a mess of any subsequent electrical maintenance.
Using Colored and Fluorescent Cable Ties for Cable Management
While you will often work on cables of different colors, it can still be a headache to remember which cable is which if you ever need to return to a previous job for upkeep. To make the distinction easier, consider using colored or fluorescent cable ties. Colored cable ties can be used to efficiently secure wire bundles and to harness electrical components. Be sure to choose heavy duty cables ties to avoid the common splitting that most ties suffer from. These cable ties can also withstand temperatures on both ends of the spectrum. Electrical Basic’s nylon cable ties come in a variety of sizes and tensile strengths to accommodate the wide range of electrical applications in which they can be used.
