Tidi-Cable has developed a problem-solving product to prevent injuries and accidents from individuals tripping over trailing cables on construction sites - saving companies thousands of pounds. Tidi-Cable’s product, Tidi-Strip, will also ensure that Health & Safety procedures are in place to prevent an executive shutting a site down and issuing fines.

The patent-pending Tidi-Strip requires no nails or screws to attach to the wall, whilst being capable of lifting up to 200 metres of cable from the floor. 

Setting up tidi-cable has been both fun and frustrating. Everyone assumes that setting up a company is hard, but it really isn't. I would recommend anyone who has an interest, or who has seen a gap in the market, to pursue it.
