Why Use Color-Coded Hose Clamps?

Apr 5, 2021 | Fasteners

Color-coded hose clamps are an easy time-saving feature that helps installers select the correct clamp for the hose diameter. Hose clamps with colored identifying marks improve efficiency during assembly and streamline the installation process.

The CLIC family of hose clamps manufactured by Caillau have colored markers that identify the diameter of the clamp. Color-coding is a valuable organization tool, as it influences our thought processes as the brain quickly associates color and assigns meaning. With color-coding, installers can always be sure to select the correct clamp for the job.

In manufacturing, color coding is used to keep processes running smoothly, as it makes identification easier and quicker to determine.

Caillau CLIC hose clamps are screw-free single piece clamps that are fast and easy to install with pliers. They are maintenance free and can be reused. CLIC hose clamps come in 3 styles: CLIC, CLIC R and CLIC E. If you are looking to improve the efficiency of installation, then colored-coded hose clamps by Caillau could be the solution.

Installation

All 3 styles of CLIC hose clamps can be fitted and removed with standard tools such as pliers or a screwdriver. Caillau recommends using specific tools like the Caillau manual pliers which make it easier to install and remove the clamps. Installation is easy, and the audible “click” when applied ensures a tight fit that is resistant to vibration, pressure and pull-off.
