power cord extension


Does any oone knows of any flat power cord extension that can go under the doors or window (like flat antena cable).
I don't mean PC power cord, but the standard electrical cord.

Re: power cord extension

I'd be very surprised; it would need to be heavily reinforced.

And please don't be tempted to use standard flat mains cable.

Heaven knows the things I've seen being done.

Re: power cord extension

I've seen ribbon power cables in an office I worked in outside of CH. I believe the power is conducted through flat copper sheets rather than standard copper wires. However the cable was quite strongly coated in rigid plastic and not at all flexible and it certainly wasn't thin enough to run under a window/door and allow it to close fully. Also it was internal and I doubt very much it was suitable for outside use. Why don't you call an electrician or go into Fust and ask. As far as electrics are concerned my motto is Live Long and Prosper - ask an expert.
