Fire Resistant Anti-Static Spiral Wrap

Prevent Hazardous Flames from Static Discharge


What's special about the FRAS wrap?

  • Both fire resistant and anti-static to prevent and retard flames and sparks in volatile environments.
  • Allows you to wrap and bundle one hose or cable at a time, or several at once.
  • Made of strong HDPE material to protect cables against being crushed, abraded or damaged by UV rays.
  • Ideal for use in underground mining, hydraulic equipment, welding, drilling, tunneling and manufacturing.

FRAS spiral wrap is made of a low-resistivity material to prevent bundles from building up a charge and discharging sparks in unstable environments, which can cause hazardous flames.  In addition to its anti-static nature, this protective wrap is fire resistant, so it won't ignite in the event of a fire.
