Cable wraps and cable organizers
Flexible spiral wraps for home and industry
Find the right spiral wrap tubing for your application
At first sight all spiral wraps may look alike. But if you take a closer look, you will see that there is a different cable wrap for different needs.
While many cable organizers are commonly used in offices or photo studios, spiral wrap tubing in more demanding environments must also withstand special conditions. For example, they must be flame-retardant or resistant to heat and chemicals.
Some tubings are characterized by outstanding abrasion and crush resistance. Others offer easy installation with an applicator tool.
However, all cable wraps have one thing in common: They bundle cables and protect them all in one go. Whatever the requirements for your individual cable management needs may be: We have the right solution for you.
Flexible cable wrap
With a handy cable wrap tool for fast application
Our HelaWrap cable protection system delivers many advantages. In addition to its good protective properties, customers particularly appreciate its very simple and fast installation – which saves valuable working time and thus also money. Thanks to the supplied applicator tool installation is done in a few seconds – as easy as closing a zipper. If required, HelaWrap can be dismantled in the same way and reused over and over again.
The advantages at a glance:
- short application time
- can be retrofitted to pre-terminated cables
- reusable and suitable for long wire harnesses
- single cords can be pulled out of the wrap at any point
- available in several colours, sizes and materials
This makes HelaWrap particularly suitable for temporary fixings – whether in home offices, photo studios, warehouses, in the electrical industry or in many other industrial scenarios.

Flame-retardant spiral wraps
EN45545-2 compliant cable wraps for the rail industry
Especially developed for the requirements of the rail industry HellermannTyton also offers halogenfree cable cover with EN 45545-2 approval – both as spiral hose wraps and as HelaWrap cable cover.
These products offer optimum protection even in harsh environments and withstand extreme conditions. For example, they are characterized by their flame-retardant additives which make them self-extinguishing according to UL94 V0.
Whether you need to protect wiring in newly built rail wagons or during refurbishment of fleets, as a part of regular maintenance and repairs: Our flame-retardant spiral wraps support to extend the life of rolling stock, they meet the latest safety standards and in addition, the rattle-free guidance of wires protects against damage from shocks and vibrations.
Our halogen-free protective conduits are used in all types of trains:
- EMU (Electric Multiple Unit)
- LRV (Light Rail Vehicles)
- Regional Trains
- High Speed Rail
Apart from the rail industry, our spiral wire looms with EN45545-2 approval are also used in many other areas – for example in public buildings or in panel building.
Besides flame-retardant spiral wraps, HellermannTyton also provides many other solutions to simplify installation processes in the rail industry – for LED lighting system upgrades, new power outlets, passenger entertainment systems and many more.
Heat- and chemical-resistant PTFE spiral tubings
Spiral cable wraps for high temperatures
Heat- and chemical-resistant spiral wrap SBPTFE covers the largest temperature range of all HellermannTyton spiral wraps. It permanently withstands temperatures of up to 260°C and is even operable up to max. 350°C intermittent operating temperatures.
Thanks to its outstanding heat-resistant properties, this PTFE spiral wrap is primarily used for cable management in the aerospace and defence industry.
With its self-extinguishing material properties according to UL94 V0, the SPTFE flexible tubing is already designed for the trends of tomorrow. It is ideal for the requirements of future mobility – for example in the fields of urban air mobility (UAM) like urban drone delivery solutions.
Hydraulic hose protection wraps
Abrasion- and crush-resistant spiral wrap tubing
Heavy-walled SPF spiral binding is perfect wherever wires are exposed to greater demands and need to be protected accordingly – for example, hydraulic lines in construction machinery.
Advantages of spiral hose wrap for hydraulic lines at a glance:
- Thick-walled and very tough
- Provides perfect protection against mechanical stress
- Abrasion and oil resistant
- Suitable for larger cable bundles up to 50 mm
Fields of application of this spiral wire loom are, among many others, in forestry, agriculture and construction vehicles as well as in the sector of oil and gas. For instance, heavy-duty SPF spiral hoses ensure the availability of machines by helping safeguard against breakdowns.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a cable wrap?
A cable wrap is primarily designed to bundle cables and wires while protecting them at the same time. Unlike standard cable ties or adhesive tapes, for example, which are intended for single use, flexible spiral wraps can usually be applied several times.
Spiral wrap tubings are ideal for retrofitting pre-installed wiring. Without having to separate or dismantle the wires, spiral wrap tubings can easily be attached afterwards. Once installed, individual cables or wires can be branched off at any point between the spiral gaps.
Whether halogen-free, heat-resistant or with standard properties: Spiral wraps are available in a wide variety of materials, colours and lengths.
How to select the right cable wrap?
To select the right spiral wrap, you should ask yourself one question: What requirements must a cable sleeving meet to suit my application?
The choice of material is a key factor here. You should ask yourself:
- Does the material have to be halogen-free or, for example, flame-retardant?
- Does it perhaps even require EN45545-2 approval?
- Does my spiral wrap have to be resistant to chemicals?
The environment or the field of application is an important factor for choosing the right spiral wrap material. Furthermore there are spiral wraps in different lengths and colours. Does the sleeving have a specific colour for visual identification?
All these questions can be answered by HellermannTyton product experts, who are happy to advise you on the choice of the perfect cable wrap. Contact us here.
How to install spiral wraps?
Compared to other tubing, HelaWrap is applied with its own applicator tool. Thanks to this, HelaWrap can be installed or removed in seconds, similar to closing or opening a zipper. Other spiral tubes are usually installed by wrapping manually. This is very simple but takes more time.
Step 1: First you should know the outside diameter of your cable bundle, because the spiral tube should be smaller than your bundle. This prevents the cables from slipping later.
Step 2: Choose a spiral wire loom of the required length or shorten it if necessary. Then start wrapping the spiral around your cable bundle and work your way to the opposite end – similar to attaching insulating tape.
Step 3: If you want to branch off single cables out of the spiral tube, do this at the appropriate place during the winding process. If you want to do this later, the spiral must be wound back to the appropriate place, unless you use the HelaWrap system.
If required, you can also unwind your spiral cable wrap completely and reuse it in another place.
Good to know: The longer the distance between the spirals during winding, the more you can bend your cables afterwards. The tighter you wind the spiral, the less flexibility you have afterwards – but the abrasion resistance is much higher.
