I"m looking for some surface mount plastic raceway to dress up a horizontal run of 50 pair UG cable. Something like this.

It's all inside. About 15' long. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.
Jim

That's probably what I'll use, Hal. Just open to suggestions.

The largest I can find in Panduit is model LD10. But I have an old scrap that measures more than the LD10. I wonder if they used to make an LD15?

Why not a some conduit? EMT would probably look better.

Oobie- Agreed, but the cable is already in and terminated. Not going to take it apart to slide conduit on. Just trying to dress things up.

You can go to their T-70 (base and cover) that's roughly 4"x1-3/4". Wiremold has their NM2000 Series that's 1-3/4"x 1". Thing is trying to get somebody to sell you one length.

Remember to use screws and anchors on that stuff. The adhesive is good for about a year, then the raceway is left hanging by the wires.

The adhesive is good for holding it in place while you drill the holes and install the screws and anchors.

I hate plastic raceway with a passion. It always looks bad to me no matter how you install it.

I do like WireMolds 2400 series of metal raceway.
