BOSTON, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The average US home has more than 550 feet of cable from electrical products, despite the so-called "wireless age," new research by decorative wire cover manufacturer D-Line Ltd. has found.
Analysis of the wiring and cables of such products as televisions, computers, alarms, and even wireless routers, demonstrates that, contrary to perception, what people think of as wireless often requires more cabling than before. Homeowners in 1970 had only around one fifth of today's exposed wiring and cables.
"So much for the wireless age: even a wireless broadband router has a power cable and telephone line!" says Paul Ruddick, founder of D-Line. "We all love our technology, but it can be messy and even a safety hazard for families with children and pets."
With the excessive amount of home wiring, many consumers seek a decorative solution to hiding cables. D-Line manufactures contemporary cable covers designed to give homeowners an aesthetic wiring solution without construction.
"Knocking holes in walls every time you want to hide cables from a new piece of equipment simply isn't an option," says Ruddick.
D-Line has created a range of single-piece PVC profiles featuring the company's patented hinge and click-lock lid. Different from old-fashioned white square-edged coverings, this range of cable raceways prevents the considerable disruption and additional labor required to ensure wires and pipes are adequately concealed following the installation of systems.
Complete with self-adhesive backing to aid fitting, the products can be installed for multi-directional applications through the use of D-Line's collection of accessories designed to fit flush with PVC lengths.
Additionally, the products suit modern homes by merging into a room's decor. The covers are available in six colors, including a wood-effect style, all of which can be painted to match a wall.
D-Line raceway is available online at The Home Depot: http://tinyurl.com/28u7p5d.
