Data Center Installations

We have been going with rolls and cut to fit, however looking for something precut that way we don't end up with a NOC monkey putting a 18 inch piece of Velcro on 4 cat5 cables...  I do have pictures... If they only get 8 inch strips, it helps keep things cleaner, and then leave the cut to fit to the people who have "engineer" in their title.

Mike, I was looking at them as well and will add them to the list to pay attention to.  Thanks, for the suggestion, I will order a roll and have a look.

For bulk velcro, I found Uline to be fairly cheap.

You should be able to get a roll from Graybar. Never checked with CSC
for that. We bought a large roll from Graybar and simply cut what we
need. It's not precut and pretty but it works.
