Managing Cables and Cords with a Raceway

Using a metal raceway is a great way to keep your unsightly electrical cables and power cords out of sight and out of the way. They are inexpensive and very easy to set up and use, and make living and work areas more attractive and clutter-free. They also help keep small children and pets safe.

This project guide highlights the steps for installing metal raceways in your home. You can also use our project planner PDF to help plan for your raceway installation.
