Title: Floor Cover to protect Audio Snake
Post by: Robert Belland on April 16, 2018, 10:10:28 am
I'm running one day seminars in a conference room and my audio snake runs in front of the food services doors, which means it's they are constantly running heavy food trays over it.

I've gone online and found some floor ramps but they all seem huge, and with very little ramp up and ramp down.

These food carts have little wheels, so they need more of a slow incline up and over the cable bump.

Does anyone have any suggestions to products that might be good for this specific environment? I've been looking at the SideWinder Cable Protection Systems but I figured this forum would have professionals that know best...

I'm still a noob at this, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

:D

You want ADA compliant (wheelchair) cable covers.

Haha agreed! I do this all the time if in a gym or non-'fancy' place :)

Be prepared for serious sticker shock if you buy real ADA-compliant cable ramps.

I was once told at a well known hotel that "That doesn't  meet _______'s standards." and insisted I tape down a 16 x 8 snake  crossing the primary ballroom entrance door instead.

I got most of my ramps and a few ADA ramps from Discount Ramps
Here's the link to their cable ramp page.
It looks like the two channel ADA ramps are $180 each.
