Tips When Choosing Cable Sleeving
Tip #1 – Choose the Proper Sleeve: It may sound like common sense although choose the proper sleeve will go a long way to completing the application in a fast and easy manner. When choosing, work out whether you will be threading it over the cable or wires or whether you have to wrap it around your wires.
- Wrap Around: You can purchase cable sleeving which features a slit down one side which is able to easily be wrapped around the cable effortlessly. This type is perfect for larger cable applications which can’t be undone at both ends.
- Threaded: Threaded sleeving is ideal for the loose cables where both or one end is exposed. You can easily slip the cables through the sleeving providing a fast installation.
Tip #2 – Size: Size is also an important factor when choosing your cable sleeving. You don’t want to buy sleeving that is too small or too large to fit on your application. When choosing the size you will need to measure around your cable with a measuring tape and choose one that is slightly a little bigger than the measurement to be able to slip it over the cable with ease.
Tip #3 – Colour: Although it may not seem obvious but choosing the right colour can also go a long way when choosing the right cable sleeving for your application. The colour can provide a cleaner and more professional look to your application when matched correctly. It can also blend into the background depending on your application.
So if you are looking to purchase cable sleeving for your wiring applications, why not take some of these tips into consideration to ensure you purchase the right one for your cable setup.
