Elizabeth, NJ – Alpha Wire announces a line extension of its popular FIT Sleeving product family. The new offering is comprised of rugged sleeving products that are designed for applications that demand superior abrasion resistance, high operating temperatures, and/or resistance to oils, solvents, and chemicals. Available in a varied assortment of wrappable, expandable, and non-expandable configurations, the new FIT rugged sleeving is suitable for military, industrial, and other potentially hazardous applications.
“The new FIT rugged sleeving products allow us to expand and already considerable offering of wire management products,” said Konstantin Khitrik, Product Manager at Alpha Wire. “With accessories ranging from heat-shrink, rigid, and flexible tubing to lacing cords and EMI shielding tape, Alpha Wire has an unparalleled range of wire management accessories.”
The new FIT rugged sleeving products are available in the following configurations:
