I'm trying to find a cord concealer that will hold a large amount of cables and be placed running across the floor of a conference room. I've scoured Google and only found either real heavy duty expensive units that you would find at an outdoor fair or something, or light use concealers that I have currently that barely hold a powercord and cat 5 cable (pictured below)



Does anyone have any suggestions for me as to where to find these if they exist? Thanks.

Depends on how many cables you are trying to *hide*.
There are some like the pic you showed that can hold almost 5 cables ?

In our case, we always end up going *over*.
Meaning, up the walls, over the ceiling and back down again.

The last *conference room* we wired up, had a moving wall installed just for that purpose.
The *wall*, was a circular wall, and had a boom from the middle of the wall to the middle of the room.
All the major screens, were mounted on that wall.

Flexiduct - Wire and Cable Management System

I'd probably just go up a wall and through the roof, like the previous poster said.

I haven't seen the cables yet, my boss just asked me to find floor cord concealers that hold more cables than what we have now (hold roughly 2). I'll look on Monday. Rerouting is not an option at this point. This isn't how I like to do things but the boss says jump, I say how high.

I checked that link, and those items are not that costly.
They are also rather high, up to over an inch of height.

My take on anything like that on the floor is a good cause to trip over.
Maybe Bungle can make a fake one and let the boss see it first ?

On the other hand, if the cable bundles are *crossing* the open path ways at the shortest distance, more than one would be the easiest solution.
