The entrance and exit points of wires from an enclosure pose real potentials for wire damage. One can never be assured the holes of an enclosure, through which your wires will pass, will be clean, smooth, and without sharp edges. The potential wear and tear on a wire as it passes through these holes could cause wire damage to the point of actual wire exposure. Wire exposure could lead to potential system shortage and eventual over all device failure. We offer a wide variety of grommets
that will eliminate this potential risk.
What is a Grommet?
A cable grommet
is a product designed to provide protection to wires and cables as they pass through an opening in an enclosure. We offer many different versions of grommets
that are applied differently and provide different benefits. [more][less]
The most common style of grommet is shaped like a donut. This is a rubber grommet
that is pushed straight into the hole, with the cable being fed through the inner hole of the grommet. We also have flexible PVC, or TPE, grommets with the inner hole closed off with material that acts like a rubber membrane over the hole. This design is meant to offer some dust and potentially liquid-tight protection. We also have grommet edging
which is applied into the hole and around the inner circumference of the hole. Our grommet line of products includes many different materials. We have rubber grommets, plastic grommets
and, for high-temperature applications, metal grommets strips
