Cable tie mounts, also known as bases, act as a fixing element for a cable tie to any surface. They assist with mounting wires and cables to walls, structures or panels. They are designed to hold cable ties that are a specific width and are selected by the maximum and minimum cable tie width it can accept. Mounts are available in different sizes, materials and designs provide a range of ways to fix cable ties.
The material of the mount has to be suited to the environment it is used in. Most are manufactured from nylons, allowing them to be tough with good heat and chemical resistance.There are some more specialist mounts available, for example:
The mounts can be attached to a surface by three main methods, either fixing with a screw, self-adhesive or push in. Some mounts are fixed either way. As well as the affixing method, the design of the amount can help determine the best area for it to be used in. Some of the most common designs are:
Self-adhesive mounts offer immediate adhesion and do not require any tools for affixing.
Easy to install and creates a long-lasting, strong fixing. Some are suitable for heavy-duty applications.
Designed for use with panels or walls with pre-drilled holes.
