Southborough, Ma. – July 31, 2013 – Commercial airplane manufacturers and aerospace engineers, who need protection against mid-air malfunctions, depend on Device Technologies FAA-approved grommet and FAR-compliant cable wrap to protect the wiring of critical jetliner components. Spring-Fast Wire Protection Grommet Edging and Protect-Fast Braided Wrap secures and optimizes performance of critical electrical systems.

Device Technologies FAA-Approved Spring-Fast® grommet edging and
Protect-Fast® cable wrap prevents wire crimping, abrasion

A global leader in wire protection solutions, Device Technologies produces Spring-Fast grommet edging and Protect-Fast cable wrap offering high performance, quality and reliability to commercial airframe manufacturers, whose cable systems cannot be compromised by accidental wire crimping and abrasion.

“The proper function of electrical systems is crucial to commercial airline safety and integrity,” said Nick Petri, President, Device Technologies. “We developed FAA-approved grommet and FAR-compliant cable wrap, specifically for use in airplane manufacture, providing reliable, long-lasting wire protection that meets high standards.”

The FAA-approved grommet provides greater gripping strength for severe shock and vibration environments, crucial to limiting wear on electrical wires and cables. What’s more, Device Technologies cable wrap provides an easy-to-assemble wire protection solution that’s used throughout the aircraft industry. The grommet fastens to the chassis and the cable wrap installs onto the cable harness.

In particular, Spring-Fast grommet offers advantages for commercial airplane manufacturers:

Easy to install
Locks to aircraft chassis with finger pressure in seconds
Eliminates the use of solvents, adhesives, ancillary materials and volatile organic compound (VOCs) associated with classic Nylon grommet strips; offers improved grommet reliability
Designed for high-shock, high-vibration environments
