Metal detectable cable tie mounts

03 June 2014

Cable management company, HellermannTyton, believes it has addressed the need for greater control and safety within the food industry by expanding its range to include metal detectable cable tie mounts.

The new cable tie mounts are said to provide a safe and secure surface to hold a cable tie in place. Along with its range of detectable cable ties and cable protection, the new addition provides a more complete portfolio for the industry.
The development of this new product is the result of independent tests carried out last year by HellermannTyton on the detectability of their own products and those from other manufacturers in the market. The company discovered that leading branded products, including its own, were easily detectable while cheaper imported cable ties fell significantly beneath the guidelines, with some being completely undetectable. 

As all types of plastic cable management solutions are used in food manufacturing, HellermannTyton recognised that every aspect of cable management within such environments needed to contain a high content of metal to be detectable and the mounts were designed to address this need.
Blue in colour for easy visual detection, the mounts are screw fixed bases that can be secured to any surface in order to hold a cable tie in place. The screw fixing element means that the product does not require any self-adhesive, removing the risk of the adhesive becoming detached from the base and entering the manufacturing process undetected. The mounts have a high metal pigment, meaning that even small ‘cut-off’ pieces are detectable and they can be used as part of the HACCP process.
The metal detectable range provides components that can be identified by magnetic detection, greatly reduces the risk of contamination and provides easy visual detection with the ranges blue colour.  The new mounts also offer a simple installation with a screw or bolt and feature a four-way entry for a cable tie, ensuring a quicker and flexible installation.
