WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?
In total we offer 6 different options of Tie-on Cable Label.
If application is external, in direct sunlight, best options: Either Fox-Flo® tie-on, printed by you via our Fox-in-a-Box® Thermal printer. Or Stainless Steel/Laser Engraved, prepared in our factory via our laser engraver.
We often find our labels are used externally, but within junction boxes/trunking. Under these sort of conditions, many of our labels that are classified as “internal” may be suitable for use. For more information please refer to specific data sheets.
Internal or External (in Boxes or Conduit)
If application is internal or external (but protected), then choose according to your preference or needs:
