Sharp edges or uneven surfaces that surround a punched hole are not good for the products that are inserted through them, and you would want to protect them from damages or exposure to the rough and uneven surfaces. The idea is that you may not be able to prevent the formation of rough edges along the inner circumferences of the punched holes, but you still could do your part in the prevention of damages to tubes or other substances that may be inserted through the length of the hole. The products that were invented with this intention and have been widely used effectively for such purposes are called grommets.
While the purpose of the grommet is to ensure that materials that are inserted through the punched or drilled holes are protected with a cushioning effect provided by the grommet along the inner circumference, there is a slight difference in application when it comes to the desk grommet, while the principle may just be the same. The product that has found immunity popularity among industrial users and has come in handy in a wide variety of applications is providing to be a reliable companion when it comes to its applications in the form of desk grommet.
Grommets could be made from materials such as Neoprene, silicone, Isoprene and natural rubber. While rubber grommets have been predominately used for the specific purposes mentioned, when it comes to desk grommets, the material that is used for their manufacture could be ABS or polypropylene. There are two kinds of desk grommets that are commonly in vogue – the round desk grommet and the rectangular table grommet. While both the varieties tend to be black in color, the round desk grommet has a surface finish that is either textured or polished, while the rectangular counter offers to be textured. There is, of course, scope for customization in terms of the material used as well as when it comes to colors and finishes of the products.
The chief purpose of the desk grommet is to properly proper wire management especially since the office space could look cluttered with a seemingly unmanageable bunch of wires that emanate from all possible places, possibly leading you off the track and turning you off. The desk grommet could be custom made to suit the individual colors of the tables, and could also be made in sizes and shapes that may match the individual requirements.
