Cable Ties


American Electrical offers a professional line of cable ties that includes the patented and innovative double locking stainless steel system (2-LOCK™) and a detectable cable tie that is specifically designed for use in food and pharmaceutical processing industries.


  • The inclusion of an iron oxide additive in the polyamide material enables cable ties or related small sections to be detected by the metal detectors or X-ray inspection systems
  • The blue color allows an easy visual inspection and detection
  • Use of detectable cable ties in plants installation, machines cabling and maintenance allows the agro-food and pharmaceutic industries to comply with the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points principles (HACCP). This preventive approach is implemented to identify and eliminate potential hazard and contaminations in the food production processes

  • The special AISI 316 stainless steel locking system, directly incorporated into the head during the injection manufacturing process, allows the highest preformances and reliability
  • The double tooth mechanism allows a double locking, on both side of ties, for an ultimate tightening of the bundles
  • Perfect wiring: the smooth profile without racks offers infinite adjustment along the length of the tie and always a correct tensioning for any bundling diameters
  • Resistance and reliability at low operating temperature up to -40 °
  • 2-LOCK™ cable ties, in black color, are manufactured of special UV-resistant polyamide, for extreme outdoor applications
  • Halogen free
