Cable management in the workplace has never been more of a priority in this modern age seeing all manner of electrical items used in our busy modern lifestyles.

Maintenance, logging of upgrades and their source, and security concerns, along with the organisation of cabling is the essence of cable management. This is where cable markers fulfil a vital function.

 The marking of wires and identification of cables has become paramount to the efficiency and safety of any office with extensive electrical systems installed.

 In general, most of the markers on the market are used with computer cabling, but there are also specific trades that use them such as research laboratories, the automotive industry and rail sectors.

 By simply attaching a cable marker to a wire it is distinct and its purpose clearly known. These markers may be tags, sleeves or even labels. There are kits of cable markers available on the market that facilitate several end uses.

Specialist cable markers

The HZ-Type fit a wide range of cables through each marker, have an excellent working temperature range of -45°C to 70°C plus the gusseting in the marker profile enables them to be attached to a wide range of cable diameters. They have a colour coding to suit applications and a choice of either straight cut or chevron cut.

The HE-Type of marker exhibits an even greater working range of temperature of -50°C to 125°C. It’s a convenient method to mark cables whether in-situ or terminated by using an integrated applicator.

The HG-Type marker (used in a similar temperature range to the HZ-Type) exhibits a high fire retardancy being made from a Zero-halogen, cadmium and silicon-free material that self-extinguishes.

Should the need to install cable markers in high-density wiring area the HO-Type is perfect for this application being a thin wall PVC design with an operating temperature range of -65°C to 95°C
