Versatile system for connections and fastenings 26 November 2015

Bormann & Neupert GmbH & Co KG states that its Smart Band is a robust alternative to stainless steel fasteners and is ideal for demanding applications and extreme ambient conditions, such as in mining or onshore/offshore wind turbines.

The long-term maintenance free straps and clips of the Smart Band system bundle cables and pipelines or hold sensors and signs securely. The straps are available in various widths up to 32mm and can be cut to any length. Standard models can handle loads up to 440kg and even permanently withstand temperatures of up to 125°C, as well as highly corrosive conditions.

Bormann & Neupert points out that the Smart Band enables easy installation even under difficult conditions, such as underwater use, and its flat patented closures enable quick and easy mounting. For faster and simplified installation, Bormann & Neupert also offers manual and pneumatic hand tools, which ensure a defined clamping force of up to 918kg.

For even more demanding requirements, Bormann & Neupert provides the Smart Band Hybrid variant. These withstand extreme tensile loads up to 2,551kg and temperatures of up to 250°C. Depending on the version, the manufacturer guarantees a service life of over 25 years.

“A special solution within the Smart Band system is the Smart Protector. It was originally developed for the protection of cables and hoses for deep ocean laying, but is also suitable for all other challenging environments,” says Andreas Kaulen, product manager at Bormann & Neupert.

The Smart Protector is compatible with all Smart Band variants and suitable for almost every cable diameter and for bundling several cables.
