Protect Your Cables from Damage

Every household has to have some cables running throughout the house, and often the tendency is to bind those cables into a bundle either using a thread or sometimes even a rubber band.  It is a shame for all those who do that! It is not only unkempt but also hazardous to keep loose cables hanging around the premises.

In fact, it is not just enough to bind them up into an assembly; you need to think of putting them together into some sort of casing and encapsulating them, so that both the cables and the inmates of the house are safe. This prevents the wires from abrasion, vibration, changes in temperature, impact from accumulation of moisture, fire outbreaks, and chemical vapours.

Joseph Ciringione, who started off as an indoor sales person at the IGUS, a leading producer of cable carriers, has gathered enough and more experience of the advantages that the proper encapsulation of cables has. He has been working in this company since 1995 and has risen to the post of National Sales and Product manager.

IGUS is reputed for not only the unmatched Energy Chain Systems, that is used to protect and house moving cables, but also for the self lubricating oil free plastic bearings and Chain flex continuous flex cables.

There are several means available to assemble your cables neatly and safely. They are: over taping, cable braiding, heat shrink, over molding, conduit, and waterproofing. It is vital that you are aware of these as these are helpful in your daily protection.

The most economic method of assembling the cables is over tapping, it saves the cables from abrasion, damage from any impact and vibration. It is hassle free and looks much better than hanging loose wires. Suited to your need there are different types of electrical tapes that you can choose from. One very handy type of over taping tape available is the ‘phasing tape’. It has different colors for different voltages and phases, making it easier for you to determine the cables.

The hard work of Joseph Ciringione of IGUS has earned the position of the North American Sales Manager, and there is no other person better than him who can vouch that the cable protectors that this company manufactures is among the best in the market. The manufacturers at IGUS had always had the mission to use innovative polymer materials so that their consumers are totally satisfied.

Protection of broad range cables is easily handled with the technique of cable braiding. This lightweight yet tough braiding protects the cables in places where the use of a conduit is not ideal. Braiding is very effecting where space is limited yet flexibility is required.

Enclosed conductors can be best protected by the conduits; these are tough but flexible protectors. Exposed locations are the best suited for the installation of conduits which are available in both metal and plastic.

Finally, remember which ever may be the method; the most important thing is your welfare. It is not a very wise decision to forsake your safety just for some silly carelessness.
