cover for wiring/cable..

I need some help, my phone line was installed down the side of my house and is covered by what looks like a piece of pvc pipe that's been cut in half lengthwise to form a cover over the wiring. I need a piece of this to use as a curb or bumper for a floor area. what is that called or where can you get some, I need a piece about 10 feet long from a 2 inch pipe size. Thanks.

Some places they're called a race or raceway for wiring. You can make your own if necessary with a length of gray PVC electrical conduit, table saw and a fine-tooth blade.
Good Luck!

I would not use PVC cut in half.
Go to an office supply store and get a piece of floor strip designed especially for this purpose. Wiremold is the largest and most popular manufacturer of this.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
