Saving time and money with the Silver Fox Endurance modular ID system


Saving time and money is important to all of us. At work, it’s a question of being more productive – being able to do more in less time – as well as making a job easier.

So, increasingly, those in the Energy, Power, Rail and Data & Telecoms industries worldwide are discovering – and using – the fast and flexible way of labelling pipes, valves, junction boxes and cable trays offered by the Silver Fox Endurance modular ID system. Made by the UK-based Silver Fox, these cable marking and labelling solutions encompass heat shrink cable markers (both standard and low-smoke zero-halogen (LS0H); non-shrink cable markers; 2-part cable markers and wrap-around cable markers for permanent marking of LV-HV power, control and instrumentation cables.

“Silver Fox cable markers and cable labels provide fast and efficient identification of cables, wires, optical fibres, panels and low and high voltage electrical equipment in both safe and hazardous areas,” explained Silver Fox’s CEO, Nick Michaelson.

“The Silver Fox Endurance system can be used for a wide range of applications,” he continued. “The Modular ID system labels use black letters, available in 17mm and 30mm sizes – in laminated PVC and two-part polypropylene respectively – printed on a yellow background. Silver Fox also supplies customers with black mounting strips in 1m (3.28ft) lengths for these cable markers. The cable markers and mounting strips – which are made of ultra-violet stabilised PVC – are resistant to water, mild acids, salt alkalis, petroleum grease, oils and aliphatic solvents.

“Moreover, the 17mm raised characters remain legible even if they’re painted over!” Nick added. “Additionally, the 17mm size characters incorporate a slot through which a cable tie can be fed, giving the option of either a rail or cable tie mounting.”

“Furthermore,” commented Nico Frame, Silver Fox’s Marketing Manager, “all components of the Silver Fox Endurance modular ID system have been successfully tested to withstand temperatures of between 85 degrees Celsius and minus 45 degrees Celsius for over 1,000 hours. This degree of durability ensures that will continue to function under difficult operating conditions and so reduces the need to go to the time and trouble of replacing them.

“We believe that it’s important for all Silver Fox cable labels and cable markers to be tested thoroughly at MoD, UKAS-certified and independent recognised test laboratories in compliance with a number of different MIL and other standards. This ensures that they’ll perform well under ‘real world’ conditions – and, indeed, out-perform their rivals,” Nico said. “And, of course, in all tests carried out on its labels, Silver Fox tests the finished, printed label – and not just the material on which it is printed. This is all part of our on-going resolve to do all we can to enable and empower our customers to turn time into profit – ensuring a highly time saving and durable solution for all our customers.”
