I have a project to run around 40 lan cables in loft style office. The office don't have any conduit attached to ceiling at all. The location of RJ45 Jacks is multiple. I wonder what is the best nice way to run all this cables to multiple locations in tight budget? I was thinking about floor corners (how to attach and protect it?) - but the 40 cables seems pretty big to hide it. J-Hooks and wall - there is a doors, windows and columns, I doubt it will look good. Was thinking to run them attached in center of ceiling, and here is a questions: 1) Should I put it in conduit by code or can run just tied all together set of cables. 2) Should I attach it close to ceiling or just suspend it? If so - how? Here is a picture of the office:
And here is my plan,
So center line is like 40 cables and each branch from center line have like 4-10 cables. Was thinking about plastic wiremold, but can't find so thick to have 4-10 or 40 cables inside. The pipes you see it is fire sprinkler pipes.
