Cable Ties

Made from metal and plastic, cable ties, commonly known as "tridents" are designed for use in the electrical, data communications, antenna, and related industries, where installers use them primarily to bundle or hold wires and cables. However, their simplicity and reliability is also appreciated in other fields of life.

Metal and Plastic Cable Ties

Cable ties were first used by Thomas & Betts (later ABB) in 1958 as a way to organize and mark cables. The product was initially used to hold cables laid in aircraft and was then manufactured from metal. Subsequently, metal was replaced by nylon, and then other plastics were tried, thus developing the many materials that are used today to produce these inconspicuous but very useful items.

Metal cable ties

Metal cable ties are used wherever heat resistance and a rigid fixing is essential. Used in the production of large cross-sections of cables where weight is an issue.

The smaller metal ties are similar in form to their plastic counterparts, however this group is characterised by the variety of solutions available - single or double screw fixing, snap-fit ties with or without serrations and metal ties with the inside and edges protected with plastic or rubber.

Plastic "Tritons"

Plastic cable ties have a wide range of applications in the field of electrical engineering and data communications as well as in other areas of life, often unconnected to construction or technology. Their construction has practically not changed for over 60 years. The outer side of the "trytytek" is covered in about ¾ of its length by a pinion. The tape is threaded through the head to form a loop and the excess can be left or cut off as required.

Cable ties in electrical engineering

Cable Ties are used by installers to bundle cables and wires internally and externally, both in cable trays, PVC strips and ladders, and sometimes also under plaster (using special fixing bases). In places where "tritites" are exposed to UV radiation it is necessary to use cable ties resistant to sunlight, for example made of polyamide modified with carbonate.

Cable ties are also used inside IT, control or multimedia cabinets, as well as inside electrical switchboards. They can be used to fix devices permanently to shelves or perforated plates to prevent them from moving. Inside the enclosures the ties bundle cables and wires to keep them neat and tidy and prevent accidental short circuits or damage.

Can a tie be opened and re-used?

Cable ties are designed so that a permanent connection cannot be opened easily. Their teeth are made in such a way that the strap can only be put through the eyelet in one direction. "Tritan can not be disconnected without destroying it. The only exception to this are small ties with low teeth - these can sometimes be disconnected and then reused. In addition, some manufacturers offer reusable triangles. These are fitted with special levers which allow the pawl to be opened.

Other applications for cable ties

Cable ties are also used in industries other than installation. They are used for marking, for example by assigning a specific colour to a category of products packed in a collective bag fastened with a "trident". A different group of items packed in the same way is marked with a different colour. In a similar way, wristbands can be used as seals - the colour code of the wristbands, agreed between the sender and the recipient, means there is no interference from third parties.

In the pharmaceutical and food industry the use of metal oxide polymers is common. These ties are easily detectable by a metal detector, therefore, any removal of the label attached to the tie or the tie itself is immediately detected and will not enter the packaging or further processing along with the food or medication.
