In Industrial areas the installation of cables can play a large part when making sure your business is running at full capacity. When installing cabling in industrial or commercial areas it is important that they are secured firmly in place, especially when they are used for long term installations. With the use of a staple gun it can provide a range of benefits when installing your cables within commercial and industrial areas.
The Advantages Of A Staple Gun
Permanent Solution: Unlike cable clips, a staple gun provides a more permanent solution when it comes to installing and holding cables. A staple gun is designed to use a large staple which is shot into wood or other hard material over the top of cable to secure it in place. Staple guns are great for industrial uses and where cabling will be positioned for a very long time and provides a permanent fixture.
Ease of Use: Another benefit of using a staple gun is that it can provide an easy to use design that is great for fast installation of cables. These staple guns are hand-held and provide a lightweight design which allows for repeated use for a large variety of cabling setups.
Grooved Guide: One more advantage of using a staple gun is that most of the time they feature a grooved guide where the staples come out which helps to prevent accidental damage to your cabling. This grooved guide helps to position the gun over the top of the cable perfectly, ready for stapling.
Durable Design: Most staple guns such as the Acme 25A and 25AC Broadband Cable and Wire Staple Gun generally delivers a much more durable design and construction which is great for heavy duty and industrial use. This is great for demanding cable installations which may require plenty of repetition over the entire section or building.
So when it comes to staple guns here are just some of the benefits you can expect. Whether you are upgrading or a beginner in the cabling field, you can’t go wrong with a staple gun for your cable applications.
Ahhh, staple guns. For most of my life, I’ve considered them to be the perfect tools for either roofing or shooting goofy burglars in sensitive areas (sorry, looks like Home Alone made a bigger impression than I realized), but now I’m seeing how great they are for running cables. In new constructions, it’s common practice to route low voltage, data, coax and Romex cables along studs, and when you do that, you have to do something to keep them in place. So why not just staple them down?
You do have to be careful, though, because using the wrong staple gun and staples can lead to crushed wiring, and we all know that that’s no good. To keep the fastening easy but still play things safe, opt for a cable-specific staple gun, like the Cable Boss™ from Gardner Bender. Why the Cable Boss™? First of all, it’s built to dispense a particular type of insulated staples that have integrated cable guards, which prevent cabling from being squeezed or crushed. Secondly, the Cable Boss™ staple gun is designed so that you can wield it single-handedly and still prevent your cables from twisting at the same time. This cool little feature is made made possible by two things: a lever-action handle that operates with minimal force, and a rear cable guide that holds the wires down, and in line, for you.
Add to that the fact that this gun can accommodate cables of many shapes and sizes, and you’ve got a great little multitasker that works effectively and cuts down on the number of tools you need to tote between jobs. They don’t call it the Cable Boss™ for nothing.
