2/23/1995 – Marlborough, MA – February 23, 1995 – Wide composite grommet edgings offer new design possibilities for materials 3/16 and -inch thick. The new Spring-Fast® edging protects wires and cables from abrasive and cutting effects of passing over sharp corners and rough edges. Also available for sheet sizes from 1/64 to 1/8-inch, the flexible edging can clamp sheet materials together as well.
The edging is ideal for protecting cables and fiber optics from abrasion and cuts. It meets flammability specifications outlined by Bellcore. Spring-Fast® edging can be used where vibration and safety are design concerns. The edging snaps on in seconds to cut production costs and for fast maintenance fixes. Tight-gripping fingers eliminate the need for toxic adhesives used with conventional plastic edging.
The edging meets Bellcore flammability and military specifications, and exceeds UL 94V0. Applications include computer, telecommunications, medical/hospital, aerospace, appliance, industrial and military equipment.
The edging’s 300-series stainless steel core provides strength and flexibility. A polymer coating gives a durable, smooth non-conductive surface that protects wires and cables from abrasion. Standard colors are black and brown. FDA coatings and other colors are available on request. The grommet edging is available from stock in 25-ft. and 100-ft. reels, and cut lengths.
