Spiral Wrap

spiral-wrap_smWhat do you use when you want to bundle and protect cables, but still need to have the option of breaking cables out at different points along the way? You reach for Spiral Wrap, of course. True to its name, spiral wrap is indeed a long, tightly-wound plastic spiral which makes up a flexible, near-solid tube that can be wrapped around cords and wires that you’d rather have covered. Spiral wrap is similar in concept to wire loom, except that it has thicker walls, and instead of breaking cables out of a lengthwise slit, you just feed them out of the bundle (between coils) as needed.

As I just mentioned, spiral wrap is substantially thicker than standard wire loom, a feature that makes it ideal for fending off gnawing pets who would otherwise chew through your cables. As a matter of fact, we’ve heard from a customer who uses spiral wrap to keep her rabbit from chewing on low-hanging lamp cords.

Our spiral wrap is made from tough but flexible polyethylene plastic, which is excellent at resisting abrasion. You can order it by the foot for small cable management tasks, or buy it by the spool for bigger jobs. It’s available in you choice of 6 solid or 3 neon colors.

  4. Hi Dennis,

    We do carry a flame-retardant harness wrap by Richco, and if you click on the link, you can take a look at the product page. If you look under the “Specifications” tab, you’ll find a table that contains the part numbers for each size, dimensions, a diagram of the product, and a bunch of other material specs. I’m not sure how “high heat” you need your harness wrap to be, but this particular product has a continuous operating temperature range of
    -60˚C to 150˚C. The only drawback is that the only one of the sizes available meets your needs (⅜″).

    However, if wire loom tubing would work for you, we also have a flame-retardant Polypropylene wire loom, which is available in all 3 sizes you require, and would provide more complete coverage for the tank’s engine cables. In addition to being flame retardant and heat stabilized, this high-temp wire loom has a continuous operating temperature range of -40˚F to 275˚F. Just as with the last product, you can get full specs by clicking on the link above, opening the “Specifications” tab, and clicking on the “Technical Specifications” link.

    And last but not least, CableOrganizer.com’s CAGE Code is: 3CN02

    Hope the information helps in your product search!
