The applications for bundling and banding are limitless. The following are some common applications where our customers use or have used Speedtech products.
Bundling Cables: How To Bundle Cables?
The recommended way to bundle cables has to do with the environment and cable function. For example, one electrical industry standard for bundling wires is set by NECA. Whereas network wire bundling has standards set by BICSI. These standards are meant to ensure consistency across sites and the proper performance of the cables you are bundling.
Network Wire Bundling: Maintaining Network Performance
For example, there are ANSI Standards and BICSI standards for how fiber optic cables should be bundled versus POe Cables, These standards are critical for maintaining the performance of the network. Read Three Tips For Bundling Power Over Ethernet Cables.
Patch cords are one example of how great our reusable fasteners are for bundling. Musicians, Pro Audio Engineers, and Lighting Crews use SPEEDWRAP® Brand Fasteners because they’re reusable, flexible, and safe for all types of cables.
Several of our products are designed to stay permanently on cords so that when they’re in use, they remain with the cords themselves. This is especially helpful when using pre-printed fasteners with your company name, or cable type listed. Check our custom-printed fasteners to learn more.
Whether they’re on a job site, inside a factory, or on a truck, hoses need to be bundled when they’re not in use. Here are some common solutions:
- Using Kwik Bandit™ Elastic Rubber Straps for larger hose bundles
- Bundling and hanging hoses using SPEEDWRAP® Cinch Straps with End Grommet
- Managing hose bundles with Cinch Straps or Wraps
- Hanging hose bundles with Suspender Straps
Bundling wires is similar to bundling cables. Check with your industry for any standardization. When bundling and banding wires, we recommend color coding to make future maintenance easier. See our color coding tips for network cabling.
