DIFFERENT TYPES OF CABLE TIES
Fri Sep 15, 2017
Choosing cable ties seems like a simple task but we think it is more than simple. Just find one that zips and you’re done.
NYLON CABLE TIES
The classic tried and true cable ties are often made from durable nylon and can be either plenum or non-plenum rated (Normally Nylon 6/6). With applications including automotive repairs and construction, to something as simple as organizing cords behind the TV. Being available in a multitude of lengths, strengths, and colors make these cable ties a jack of all trades.
STAINLESS STEEL CABLE TIES
When operating in harsh environments, such as outdoors or near corrosive materials, nothing would be better than stainless-steel cable tie. These durable ties are great for securing very heavy loads such as bundles of steel cable or securing electrical parts.
METAL DETECTABLE CABLE TIES
Designed for the food processing industry, metal detectable cable ties are made with brightly colored nylon with a small strip of metal on the inside, making them highly visible and detectable by machinery, preventing containment. These ties work for non-food processing application where accidental contamination could be detrimental such as pharmaceuticals or cosmetics.
RELEASABLE CABLE TIES
For ease of use, releasable cable ties are unmatched. These nylon cable ties feature an adjustable locking mechanism allowing them to be released and reused by pushing a tiny tab. These ties are perfect for transporting cords between job sites or short-term storage.
COLD-WEATHER CABLE TIES
When sub-zero temperatures are in effect, whether outdoors or in a freezer, cold weather cable ties are required to maintain their integrity in such harsh environments using specially treated nylon. Most nylon cable ties become brittle in cold temperatures, compromising their strength. These cable ties are required for any application outdoors in cold climates or use in commercial-grade freezers.
LOW-PROFILE CABLE TIES
All the same benefits of traditional cables ties, without the bulky head. Low-profile cable ties, also known as parallel entry cable ties, allow for a flush grip around a bundle, perfect for tight spaces inside conduit.
MOUNTING CABLE TIES
For added utility, Mounting Cable Ties feature a small loop on the head, allowing for the hanging cord and wire bundles. Applications include everything from the inside of a work truck, to the home workshop. The uniquely designed pawl (locking mechanism) of F4P Cable Ties offer the required strength to both suspend and secure bundles of wire.
IDENTIFICATION CABLE TIES
Make the organizing and storage of bulk wires and other bundles easy with Identification Cable Ties. Each tie features a small flag, perfect for attaching printed labels or hand-written messages. This two-in-one solution allows for faster and efficient storage and identification.
When choosing the right cable tie, there can be a lot to consider. While every application could use any cable tie, each variety offers its own specialized advantage that could be the difference between an organized work environment or a disorganized safety risk.
