Device Technologies Unveils New Spring-Fast FM Series:
New Flush Mount Spring-Fast Wire Protection Grommet Edging

Toronto, Canada, September 28, 2004 – Don’t Gamble with Wire Protection and Safety. Bet on a flush!—the new Spring-Fast® Flush Mount Wire Protection Grommet Edging.

Device Technologies, Inc. an ISO9001:2000 certified company that designs and manufactures high performance specialty fastener solutions, is pleased to announce the latest addition to its already successful Spring-Fast Wire Protection Grommet Edging family of products, the new Spring-Fast FM Series.

Device Technologies will be unveiling the new product at the Canadian Manufacturing Week Tradeshow in Toronto, Canada, September 28-30, 2004, booth # 377 in the OEM pavilion.

Engineers at Device Technologies designed the Spring-Fast FM Series with a unique castle profile—one side with a traditional castle, and the other with a smooth flat profile that mounts flush to the parallel edge surface. This new design greatly reduces the chances of a wire, cable bundle, fiber, hose or tube ‘snagging’ and developing abrasion damage, while at the same time, maintaining the same gripping strength, multi-axis flexibility, and abrasion protection of other Spring-Fast products.

“The Spring-Fast FM Series is the fastest, safest, most reliable way to protect wires, cables and tubing from abrasion. It locks on with finger pressure or hand roller in seconds, a significant time reduction, eliminating solvents, adhesives, ancillary materials, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and eliminates the need for EPA Insurance, while enhancing productivity and quality” said Nick Petri, president of Device Technologies. ”The Spring-Fast FM Series is a huge advance for DTi and will be of great value to our customers in a variety of industries.”

The Spring-Fast FM series has a spring stainless steel substrate base and is encapsulated with a smooth abrasion resistant fusion-bonded polyamide coating. No adhesives or volatile chemicals are needed to apply the Spring-Fast FM series—simply installs in seconds with simple finger pressure or DTi’s Roll-Fasttm applicator. The Spring-Fast FM Series is also reusable.

The grip strength of the stainless steel substrate assures meeting the Shock and Vibration requirements of MIL-STD-1344, and the polyamide finish has high dielectric strength making them abrasion, immersion, chemical and salt spray resistant. The Spring-Fast FM Series also meets flammability standards of UL94 V-0 and FAR 25.853 (v) (grommets).

The low profile .028 (.7 mm) and four axis flexibility makes the Spring-Fast FM series a versatile product that fits small inside, outside radii and corners of square vertical wall cabinet structures—in a variety of industries.
