The types of strap
The strap can be used for different applications: fixing a signing plate, a cable duct, fixing network anchoring and suspension systems and service anchoring systems or even boxes and cabinets on a pole, …
Depending on the desired use, the right choice of dimensions is important. Two dimensions are decisive for this product: width and thickness.
There are two standard thicknesses, namely 0.4mm or 0.7mm.
In terms of width, the most widely used dimensions are:
- 10 mm (3/8 ’’)
- 13 mm (1/2 ’’)
- 16 mm (5/8 ’’)
- 20 mm (3/4 ’’)
The choice of one width or thickness rather than another will mostly result of a need for greater or lesser mechanical strength. That is why preference will be given to a strap with a wide section for a high stress to hold and a thinner strap when the need is to attach an accessory to the pole without real mechanical stress.
Beyond the dimensions, the material in what the strap is made of, plays an important role when used with high mechanical stresses or with respect to resistance over time.
