This line includes an extensive portfolio of protective sleeving and cable/hose shielding, which we include in all manner of light vehicle applications, including SUVs, crossovers, cars, and light to medium-duty pickup trucks.
In addition, as a perennial innovator, Systems Protection designs protective sleeving for the electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid vehicle markets. Our EV shielding can help to maximize the lifespan of wiring harnesses that are subjected to high voltage and amperage for prolonged periods.
Systems Protection’s aerospace & defense product line provides specialized solutions for core segments of the aircraft market. We offer protective sleeving designed for use in satellites, UAVs, regional jets, business craft, fighter jets, and large commercial aircraft.
It is absolutely vital that an aircraft’s wiring infrastructure be reliable — everything from profits and customer satisfaction to safety and even national security can hinge on it. When such important factors are on the line, aerospace manufacturers turn to TSP.
To help our clients maintain safety and compliance, Systems Protection has created a railway industry product line that has been tested extensively in accordance with the varying regional requirements of our customer base.
Our protective sleeving can be used to safeguard cable assemblies and wire harnesses in several areas of a railway car, including the undercarriage, electrical cabinets, and the chassis and cabin. Systems Protection wire sheathing can be found in light rail, rolling stock, monorail, and high-speed train applications.
System Protection’s industrial products prioritize thermal resistance, as prolonged exposure to high temperatures is common in the industrial setting. Our product line includes FyreJacket protective sleeving, which offers exceptional thermal protection. We also provide wire sheathing made of unique materials like silica fibers or ceramic.
System Protection’s industrial-grade protective sleeving can be found in oil drilling operations, steel mills, mining facilities, and other harsh environments. Our cable, wire, and hose shielding can withstand prolonged indoor or outdoor use and hold up in extreme temperatures.
As part of our commitment to innovation, Systems Protection has created an entire line of protective sleeving for the electronics sector, which includes several UL-recognized components. By adhering to standards such as UL, we ensure exceptional product quality, performance, and reliability. In particular, our Expando brand of protective sleeving is a core UL-recognized offering. It is commonly used for abrasion and mechanical protection.
Systems Protection’s protective sleeving can be found in a broad array of applications, including power supply equipment, telecommunications systems, and consumer electronics. Our patented technology protects wire harnesses from normal wear and tear. It also helps prevent situational damage that can occur when the product is exposed to particularly harsh environments.
Systems Protection’s Off-Road product line addresses key abrasion and thermal issues that can be caused by harsh environmental factors, including exposure to moisture, dirt, debris, and extreme temperatures. TSP’s protective sleeving can also withstand vibration caused by rough terrain, salt spray, and extreme weather.
Our Off-Road products are commonly found in adventure vehicles such as snowmobiles and ATVs. They are also used in agricultural equipment and construction machinery.
At Systems Protection, a Tenneco Business Group, we serve clients in the commercial vehicle market. When doing so, we prioritize helping customers meet permissible emissions standards.
Simultaneously, we provide protective sleeving that maximizes the longevity of heavy trucks and other equipment that is exposed to rigorous conditions. Our heavy truck product line includes wire sheathing. It also consists of cable and hose shielding solutions, with a focus on Class 5 through Class 8 vehicles.
Systems Protection services clients who maintain fleets of on-highway trucks, such as semis. Additionally, we work with clients who use vocational service trucks, which are often equipped with supplementary machinery such as lifts and booms.
Our Protective Sleeving Products and Services
The core purpose of Systems Protection, a Tenneco Business Group’s, line of protective sleeving and cable shielding solutions is to preserve the function of wire harnesses and electrical infrastructure.
However, we have diversified our product line to address specific industry-use cases and protection concerns. We offer products and services for:
Our abrasion protection products are available in a range of temperature thresholds, running from 125°C to 260°C. We also offer abrasion-resistant protective sleeving in both wrappable and tubular constructions to address complex wire harness designs.
While this product line prioritizes abrasion protection, it also withstands toxicity, smoke, flame, and vibration. These products are commonly used in automotive, off-road and heavy construction applications. However, they can also be applied to any other design where abrasion resistance is a chief concern.
Offering a diverse array of battery protection solutions has never been more important, and the rise of EVs has created a new need within the protective sleeving space. TSP has stepped in to fill this void.
Tenneco Systems Protection offers a range of battery protection solutions, including electrical insulation that can withstand thresholds greater than 2.5kV in dielectric strength. We also offer battery crash protection at application-specific energy levels and thermal runaway protection products.
Tenneco Systems Protection also offers protective sleeving solutions that are designed to provide optimal crash protection. The sheathings offer superior energy absorption and excellent cut-through resistance. Our crash protection sheathing is also available in orange, which allows emergency services personnel to easily identify high-voltage cables, a common element in EV production.
TSP’s crash protection products can additionally be used in heavy trucks. There are many uses in commercial and recreational off-road equipment as well.
Systems Protection offers a variety of protective sleeving designed to protect wire harnesses from electromagnetic interference. We offer low-weight EMI shielding options for both low- and high-voltage applications. All our EMI wire shielding features stable woven construction, which provides consistent performance regardless of application diameter.
Our EMI shielding products are available with integrated grounding solutions. Additionally, we can provide surface transfer impedance testing services at one of our international technology centers. This allows us to ensure that the product meets your intended protection thresholds.
Tenneco Systems Protection’s line of fire protection products includes hose and cable shielding, as well as wrappable wire sheathing. Our tier-one fire protection products can provide up to 15 minutes of fire resistance at a temperature of 2,000°F.
In addition, our fire protection products help hose manufacturers meet their industry’s stringent flammability standards. The wrappable design expedites installation time, thereby enabling our clients to reduce labor costs and simultaneously increase efficiency.
Systems Protection offers a comprehensive line of thermal protection solutions, including radiant heat products. We also offer wrappable and tubular insulative heat protection sleeving. Our customizable heat shield protection products can be equipped with holes, tabs, and notches to align with client use cases.
