Automotive Electrical Protection and Handling
Automotive engineers estimate that some 60 percent of all warranty returns involve electrical system problems. With electrical/electronic distribution systems (EEDS) handling more vehicle functions all the time, electrical protection and cable management is more important than ever. Protecting painted or delicate components is crucial to meeting today's high-quality standards. Our versatile touch fasteners make electrical protection and handling easier; reusable covers that open and close with hook and loop fasteners are custom-made to wrap around everything from wiring harnesses to instrument panels. We can adapt the strength, colour, printing and dimensions of our fasteners to fit the customer’s requirements, and offer permanent and removable assembly wraps to protect wires and connectors during the vehicle installation.
