Not a permanent solution
This thing comes rolled up in a box. I layed cases of paper on it and even used a heat gun to soften the plastic. I had no luck but figured it would eventually lay flat...I was wrong.
Even after 2 months people are still tripping over it and it curls at each end. The chanel to run the cables through is barely big enough for a cat5 cable and a power cable. I'm using it to run two cat5 cables and one power cable and had to tape the bottom to keep it closed.
If your'e looking to use this for a temporary solution (tradeshow, temp office setup, etc.) you'll have to fight with it for awhile but...it might work for you.
If you plan on using this as a permanent situation to run cords across a cubicle or through a high traffic hallway...AVOID THIS and have the cables run professionally some other way.

These strips come in a coil that is VERY difficult to uncoil. I have had the three for my office sitting under full cases of paper for several days so that they will lay flat. Even now, the ends want to curl. I want to hide a thin phone cord, but the middle space is too fat and the cord just falls out; and the two side spaces are too thin to put the end connector bit of the phone cord through. Putting several of the concealers end to end is neither neat nor safe. The tape that is included is not strong strong enough to overcome the coiling. I have wasted a lot of time on this.
