Ty-Rap® cable ties: for demanding applications
Since 2017, WKK is an official partner of ABB Wire and Cable Management. This makes WKK a distributor of the world famous brand Ty-Rap®:
a type of cable tie (also called zip tie) that has become the generic name for ‘cable ties’.
The Ty-Rap® cable tie was invented to solve the problem of harnessing hundreds of wires used in aircraft manufacturing and revolutionized the fastening world. Today, the Ty-Rap® brand is the benchmark for excellence and innovation in cable management.
The iconic Ty-Rap® cable tie brand offers you the ultimate solution for bundling and securing cables and wires under demanding conditions. You can recognize cable ties of the brand Ty-Rap® by the stainless steel locking mechanism inside the head of the cable tie. This provides one of the strongest, most durable and most reliable fixings available on the market.
Features of Ty-Rap® zip ties
Ty-Rap® zip ties have rounded edges on the head and the strap. This prevents sharp edges and therefore cable damage. Ty-Rap® zip ties have been designed in such a way that the product offers optimal protection and prevents injuries.
The strap of the zip tie is smooth and has no notches. The low profile of the head allows you to bundle zip ties in tight places.
The anti-magnetic stainless steel (type 316) locking mechanism inside the head ensures a strong, reliable and durable fastening of the zip tie in demanding environments.
The products have a ribbed and dotted surface. This prevents the zip tie from sliding around and along the cable bundle due to vibration or shocks.
Ty-Rap® zip ties also feature a non-slip, angled tail (turned up). This stimulates convenience and speed during assembly.
WKK supplies cable ties of the Ty-Rap® brand in many types, sizes and colors. The choice for the right product depends on your specific application(s).
As an official partner of ABB, we are able to offer these high-quality cable ties at favourable conditions.
