Our customized SnapAround® Cable Markers are made of coiled PVC plastic and are easy to install. Just unroll and “snap” around existing cable, optical fiber, pipe, duct or tubing. The cable marker holds its tight coil around the cable for the life of the marker. Available in standard or custom graphics and messages. Add RFID to combine the benefits of visual identification with the efficiency of RFID technology.

SnapAround Will Meet All Your Cable Marking Needs

Easily Seen

Hazardous and dangerous cables need to be marked in bright colors so that they are easily seen. SnapAround markers excel at standing out against the background of cables, ducts, and pipes, which helps reduce the risk of accidental damage or injury. 

For instance, orange markers — synonymous with telecommunications — allow individuals to quickly spot fiber optic cables, which prevents hazardous situations. The use of these SnapAround markers, accompanied by clear, unique text and symbols, directly contributes to safety by making cables and conduit more visible.

Fast Identification

SnapAround cable markers facilitate faster identification, which is invaluable during maintenance, installation, or emergency situations. These brightly colored markers allow technicians to quickly search for and identify the correct line without unnecessary delays. 

This rapid identification process not only improves efficiency but also minimizes the downtime during critical operations. Additionally, SnapAround markers with standard color codes and unique text help avoid confusion and speed up the decision-making process, which results in more efficient management of resources and time.


Cable markers need to be long-lasting and durable to withstand various environmental conditions, especially in outdoor settings. SnapAround markers are designed to resist fading, abrasion, and weathering to ensure that the labels remain legible over the life of the cable.

These durable markers are made from materials that can endure extreme temperatures and exposure to sunlight and are critical for continuous safety and identification purposes. The long-lasting SnapAround labels mean that the information, such as ownership and specifications, stays clear and accessible — reducing the need for frequent replacements and ensuring the longevity of the marker’s utility and the cable or conduit it identifies.

Maintaining Compliance

Using cable markers is integral to maintaining compliance with industry standards and regulations. Regulatory bodies often require that cables and pipes be labeled with specific markers that meet certain specifications, including color, size, and text, to denote their function and hazard level. 

SnapAround cable markers help organizations adhere to these standards by providing a clear and standardized method of identification. By using markers that align with the required specifications, companies can avoid regulatory penalties and ensure a consistent approach to labeling.
