Custom Cables, Custom Fiber Optic Cables, Network Patch Cables, Power Cables, Power Cords offers you the option of creating custom cables based on your specifications. Custom colors allow you to differentiate between different types of cables, or to give your office space a more sleek, cohesive look. 

No two operations are alike, but sometimes it seems like shopping for cables is a "one size fits all" experience. Whether you're shopping for your home office or entertainment center or a business, you've no doubt figured out the importance of making sure that you have the right cable you need for your installation. Few things are as intimidating as a large tangle of electronic cables powering numerous important home electronics and devices. Tangled cables can also be a safety risk. Color-coding your power cords is a good way not only to know which cable belongs to which electronics, but to make cable management easier and more straightforward. 

Custom Network Patch Cables

"Standard" cable colors are generally black or gray, meant to blend in discretely with an office environment's furniture. But the features that make these cables inconspicuous also make them difficult to organize. If you can't tell your cables apart from each other, it's very easy to unplug the wrong one and lose power or connectivity, and also essential work that can't be replaced. It's very possibly a mistake you (literally) can't afford to make. Choosing to custom color-code your cables may seem excessive or even frivolous, but being able to more easily identify specific cables will help keep them running safer and longer.

There's a rhyme and a reason to optical fiber cable colors - namely, there are "standard" colors based on fiber cable types. In non-military installations, single mode OS1 cables are yellow, while multi mode OM1 and OM2 cables are orange. OM3 and OM4 cables, the most commonly used multi mode cables, are aqua. 

If you're worried about losing track of these essential cables, though, you have the option of ordering custom colored fiber optic cable from This means that you can purchase your OM4 40GB Fiber Optic Cable in any color you'd like.
