This is a case study on how to have the best performing grommet edging and a lower total install cost. Free Evaluation Samples: http://bit.ly/Samples123
Wire and cable abrasion can cause systems to become unreliable leading to loss of use and data which can have a wide range of negative effects on the particular unit or system affected or a business as a whole.
The standard industry solution to prevent abrasion is to apply glue to plastic grommets to cover the sharp edges. However that requires 6 steps: cleaning the surface, mixing an adhesive, applying the adhesive to the grommet, installing and fixturing the grommet, cleaning up and letting the adhesive cure and finally removing the clamps or tape fixtures so you can run the cables.
However a much more efficient and lower cost alternative is Spring-Fast.
Spring-Fast grommets are a unique design: a continuous stainless steel clip in a protective polymer coating. It provides high abrasion, shock and vibration resistance and meets applicable flammability, smoke and toxicity standards.
Installs easily with just finger pressure –and can be continuously applied. This ease of install without adhesives brings significant savings.
Actual user data from a Spring-Fast user. Spring-Fast vs plastic grommet plus adhesive.
Spring-Fast install is far simpler and yields a significantly lower total installed cost.
Line 1 the base cost for a 12.75” Spring-Fast grommet & a plastic grommet strip. The costs are $3 and 45c each.
Line 2 Time and materials needed to mix the adhesive (often custom mixed). Estimated at 25c for the plastic grommet & does not apply to Spring-Fast.
Line 3 is the install labor cost. 6 minutes per strip when using the adhesive and just 1/2 a minute for Spring-Fast @ $60 labor rate that means the install labor costs are 50 cents and $6.00.
Line 4 Additional costs for rags, masks, gloves used with the adhesive. Does not apply to Spring-Fast.
Line 5 Total installed costs for both versions. Spring-Fast’s is $3.50 vs. $6.84
Line 6 Estimated savings of $3.34 per strip by using Spring-Fast
Line 7 shows the estimated savings at 49% per strip in comparison to the plastic grommet
Line 8 For a 25,000 strip project: Spring-Fast costs $87,500 and plastic grommets would cost $171,000
Line 9 Total projected saving $83,500 by using Spring-Fast
Plus productivity savings from no curing, creating fixturing or inspecting the work.
Put in your own data to estimate what you could save.
Spring-Fast is increasingly becoming a standard for the automotive, aerospace and defense industries because of its performance coupled with its easy and low installation cost.
Spring-Fast gives users in any industry the security of knowing that their wiring and cables are protected by best in class cable grommets that also save them money on total installed costs.
