Flatwire: Hide Wires on the Wall, Not in the Wall

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 30, 2007

One of the biggest problems with home electronic gear is hiding all the wires associated with your projects. Sure, there are cable management solutions such as cord channels, cable ties and ugly wiremold systems, but none of them look nearly as nice as running all your cables in the walls. Until now, that is.

Flatwire Surface Mount Wiring

FlatWire produces paper thin wiring that can be laid on the surface of a wall, smoothed over, and painted to blend right into your room without having to remove any drywall. Flatwire is available in a variety of styles including speaker wire perfect for surround sound installations to low-voltage wiring for halogen wall sconces. While Flatwire is just a little more expensive than regular wire, it’s actually less expensive than if you had to purchase wire plus some sort of cable management system, and certainly a lot more cost-effective than ripping out walls.
