Speed is of the essence for HellermannTyton's Q-Series

HellermannTyton’s new ‘Q-Series’ open-head cable tie range provides one of the world’s fastest products in its field, says the global cable management specialist.

“Independently approved testing - including blindfolding installers - showed more than a 25% time-saving when applying multiple Q-ties compared with other standard products on the market,” said Manufacturing Product Manager Richard Rands.

“The unique patented head design allows for a quick and simple fastening, saving significant time and money across a wide range of installations, particularly under difficult circumstances - for example where gloves are worn or where access to the application is restricted.”

Mr Rands believes that another significant user-related benefit of Q-ties is the pre-locking function that enables cables to be temporarily fastened before being permanently installed.

“This re-usability factor eliminates the time and cost associated with applying and removing temporary cable ties, therefore maximising the installers’ bottom line,” he added.

The Q-Series range of products also includes two-way and four-way self-adhesive or screw fixing cable tie mounts along with easy-to-read identification tags and adhesive labels, supported by intuitive label design and printer software.

“The new Q-Series clearly demonstrates our on-going practice of working closely with and responding to our customers in developing ground-breaking, tailor-made solutions - in this case, fast application. Our design facilities in Manchester and Plymouth, in particular, allow close client partnerships to deliver solutions that provide real business value.

“We believe that this evolutionary approach is why HellermannTyton remains at the forefront of the market after 80 years with more than 60,000 fastening, connecting, routing, protecting and identifying solutions for extremely diverse markets - all designed and produced at one or more of our UK-based facilities.”
