Organize and Protect Your Wires and Cables with Expandable Braided Sleeving
Bulky connectors, tight spaces and a need for total flexibility can make it seem difficult to find the right cable management product for your home theater, desk or engine bay, but it’s actually a lot easier than you might think: all you need is braided cable sleeve. Known as the cable hider with plenty of built-in flex, expandable sleeving is made of strong but flexible filaments woven into a braid-like fabric tube that expands to fit over cables and connectors during installation, and then immediately shrinks back down to size for a sleek, form-following, customized fit.
In addition to its ability to harness multiple cords and protect cables and hoses from surface abrasion, braided sleeving also enhances the look of wiring by giving you the option of adding the visual pop of bright colors, carbon fiber, stainless steel or chrome that you usually only find on expensive boutique cables.
Braided wire sleeving has the ability to drain water quickly, so it’s perfect for protecting cables and anchor chains in marine settings, and depending on the specific material it’s made from, is also highly resistant to oils, de-icing fluid, fuels, solvents, chemicals and even heat, making it the go-to wiring protector for automotive, military and aerospace applications. We offer woven sleeves made of PET and polyester for standard use around your home or office, stainless steel and other metals for rugged outdoor use and cable EMI/RFI shielding; fiberglass, Teflon® and Kevlar® for heat resistance in vehicles and aircraft; and Mylar®, chrome and UV-reactive plastics for hobbyists and case modding.
In addition to regular braided cable sleeving, which is applied by being slid along the length of a cable, we also carry side-entry cable sleeves for use on wires that are already attached to components and can’t be disconnected. Side-entry braided sleeving is slit along its length so it can be wrapped around cables from the side, and stays closed and in place via either a self-wrapping shape memory design, or built-in hook-and-loop edging.
