RACINE, WI — Speedtech International, a manufacturer of hook and loop ties, straps & specialty fasteners, has announced the release of SPEEDWRAP Brand FIBERtie- Hook and Loop Cable Ties. Specifically designed for the data communications marketplace, FIBERties are available in special network-accepted colors. As a result, the flexible, reusable fasteners help data communications installers and electrical installers safely bundle, route and identify network and fiber cables.
While SPEEDWRAP® hook and loop fasteners are manufactured in a number of colors, the new FIBERtie™ Line is available in special fiber optic cabling colors. For example, Teal (aqua) for OM3 or OM4 cables, Yellow for single mode cabling, Orange for OM1 or OM2 cabling and Violet (Purple) for OM4+ network cables. The availability of these colors is exciting to anyone dealing in fiber optic cable management, including Installers and Electrical Distributors.
In addition to these unique fiber related colors, FIBERtie is also available in Blue for use with low voltage cabling and Maroon (Cranberry) color for use with cabling being installed in air handling spaces or that may require plenum-rated fasteners.
Because they are flexible, gentle on cables, strong and reusable hook and loop style cable ties have become the go-to-fastener for Datacom installers. However, use of these ties for color coding cables is a newer trend.
Steve Pope, Speedtech’s Vice President explains, “A key benefit of the new FIBERtie Cable Tie is the ability for low voltage installers to color code the type of fiber cabling the ties are managing. We’ve even had interest from Electrical Distributors who want to stock Black, UV resistant cabling for both outside and inside use. Because that jacket color is Black, installers can now use FIBERties to help differentiate the type of fiber cabling. Carrying inventory of different colored FIBERties is far less expensive than additional varieties of fiber cabling.”
To ensure the highest level of support, SPEEDWRAP® Brand FIBERtie™ will only be sold to authorized SPEEDWRAP® Brand Electrical Distributors. Interested Electrical Distributors are invited to contact Speedtech to learn more about this new product.
