I'm looking for what is commonly called "Floor Duct" or a Cable Floor guide.  It will be running several cables. It doesn't have to be too long, but does need to lie as flat as possible.

Most of the ones I've seen have a narrow path for the wires.

I am looking for one that has an opening large enough for monitor cables and power cords.

Thanks

Those come in a variety of configuration and are normally a heavy plastic-rubber compound that will lie nearly flat on floor.

Here is one such example from Home Depot and there are lots of other suppliers around.

I hope that gets you on your way.

Try "cable protector" for an alternative name, that will throw up some of the more heavy duty ones.

I looked around Amazon, and found a cable protector with capacity for at least 6 network cables.

Good leads. I was lucky enough to have Amazon present the best one to me when I was searching.
