The Added Benefits of Cable Tidies and Trunking

When it comes to electrical cables and the untidiness they cause, not to mention the dust traps they become, a cable tidy unit and trunking from D-Line provides the ideal solution for this messy problem. By providing a neat, easy to clean around way to “hide” your plugs in a cable tidy, and by hiding cable inside trunking that blends perfectly with your skirting, the difference in appearance is phenomenal and much easier to clean around.

However, our customers are finding additional benefits from using the products, in particular, parents who are child proofing their houses. We have received a lot of positive feedback about the added benefits of D-Line products with comments such as:

“Highly recommend this product to tidy up and hide your messy wires. It’s been a godsend for our one year old who is fascinated by plugs and wires! It’s great since you can fit a large extension lead in there with four different plugs.”  

And:

“I bought this product as we have a baby and now at the stage of trying to make the house a safer environment as she becomes more mobile. It’s definitely helpful as it has enclosed the extension and all the plugs and we’ll be adding the cable trunking to complete it. The whole area looks neater, and the product is sold (and was bought by myself) on this basis.”

Not only do the cable tidy units cover and prevent young fingers from getting at plugs, they stop trips and protect the electrics from any spills in the process. The feedback we have received has been fantastic and, with the extra benefits you can get from the D-Line range, it makes sense to add them to your child proofing plans. The D-Line range is stocked in B&Q, Homebase and Screwfix.

We always welcome feedback and information on new ideas for using our products – please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or want to share anything with us.

Avoiding Accidents in the Workplace and Home

With an increasing number of accidents at home and work, it is imperative to ensure that anything that can be done to reduce the chances of accidents is done.

Work related injury and illness were estimated to cost $60.6 billion (source: safeworkaustralia.gov.au) in the 2008–09 financial year - injuries accounted for 51% of this cost.

Trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work. This shows that trip hazards in the home and at work are both significant and costly.

How to we reduce this risk?

It is unrealistic to say that accidents can be totally eradicated from the home and workplace. What is achievable is reducing the possibility of these accidents by some basic actions that are quick and easy to achieve yet can dramatically reduce the chance of trip and other accidents.

When it comes to trip hazards, the worst offender is wires or cords from electrical appliances not being organised in a safe way, both in the home and at work. Whether it is computer cables under a desk or TV and entertainment centre cables not tucked away safely at home, the risk from simple trips is greatly increased. There are many ways to make this situation safer quickly and easily. By using some readily available accessories or simple organisation, trip hazards can be reduced or eradicated altogether.

D-Line has a range of products that help reduce the risks in the workplace and at home in a stylish and effective manner, ensuring safety combines perfectly with aesthetics. This helps portray a professional image at work and a tidy, safe home. With items such as decorative trunking that blends in with skirting boards and hides cables, and linkable floor cable covers, safety can be achieved at minimal cost but with a really positive visual look. 

D-Line Sounds Right for AV Enthusiasts

When it comes to AV enthusiasts, they are a very demanding breed. Everything needs to be in its place and the performance has to be perfect. And rightly so!

When it comes to equipment, no expense is spared in sourcing the best systems that money can buy. Whether it’s a sound system, home cinema or any other installation, how it looks and how it performs are of paramount importance.

In terms of performance and how a system looks, cables and what you do with them can often be a problem. There are wireless options available but the AV communities seem to be against this if it can possibly be avoided due to a loss of sound quality.

What about channelling walls and burying cables? A good if expensive and messy option, and difficult / impossible to add or remove wires when needed.

So what is the best option?  Trunking can work really well to hide cables while remaining accessible to add or remove wires as necessary. D-Line has a range of patented trunking and cable management products that are being very well received by AV communities both in the UK and Europe alike. The trunking blends perfectly with skirting and can be painted to match décor. The great thing about the trunking is that the D shape allows cables to be hidden inside it, and accessed via the hinged top, which then locks into place. There is also a quarter round version that sits at the bottom of your skirting which is ideal for hiding speaker wires. There is even a TV drop that hides any cables coming down from your TV.

All-in-all, there are some great options to hide cables and extensions that will enhance your installation or hide those unsightly cables – and some are more innovative than others.
