GATES Australia has announced the release of four new product lines in its Ideal hose clamp range.
The new range includes embossed clamps; turn-key clamps; carded clamps; and flexible hose clamp drivers.
Ideal has released a range of embossed clamps that have a non-perforated band.
The clamps are available in 9mm and 12mm band widths, in both all-carbon steel, and all-stainless steel material constructions.
These clamps are preferred by the European original equipment and replacement markets, the non-perforated rolled band protects silicone and other soft hose surfaces from extruding or shearing during installation, providing ultimate exterior hose wall protection.
This style of hose clamp is commonly used in automotive, industrial, mining, hydraulic, marine and general hardware applications.
New turn-key hose clamps are easy to install with a simple hand twist, no tools required.
They are easy to remove and replace. Simply pull off the key for tamper-resistant connection.
Turn-key clamps come in a variety of sizes to fit automotive heater and radiator hose, garden hose, caravan sewer hose and dryer vent hose. They are available with yellow, red or blue keys.
The clamps are stainless steel, and come in 12mm and 8mm (micro) band widths.
Ideal carded clamps provide a convenient method for displaying hose clamps in a retail environment.
Each blister pack contains two each of the designated clamp size. The carded clamps have an attractive design for displaying on a showroom plano gram.
The carded range features Ideal 62 & 57 series clamps, consisting of stainless steel band and housing, together with the 52F series clamp, all-carbon construction for fuel/transmission hose.
These clamps are suitable for the most common hose and automotive applications.
Flexible hose clamp driver
Rather than using an old rigid nut driver, Ideal has introduced a flexible hose clamp driver.
The flexible shaft and no-slip grip provide 90 degrees access and works best in hard to reach places such as compact car and boat engines, as well as general repair applications.
The socket fits mini and standard hose clamp screw heads. Just flip the socket for the desired size of 1/4" or 5/16".
To support the expansion of the Ideal product range, Gates has launched the Ideal Clamp Catalogue, featuring the complete Ideal range.
The 20-page catalogue has easy to read product information, product pictures and part numbers on all the clamps Ideal has to offer to the South Pacific market.
