There is a wide range of grommets manufactured today using PVC, rubber and TPR which is perfect in the protection of wires, hoses and cable passing through standard metal panel sheets. The various designs and sizes of grommets can fit most standard panel holes between 3/16 inches and 2 ½ inches.

These grommets, whether in plastic or rubber material, will snap into the holes easily without any extra tools in their installation. The most appropriate grommet should be chosen depending on the type of exposure and environment which exposes the type of grommets in contact.


While rubber grommets are suitable to most typical applications, they can cause some concern when exposed to UV light, ozone or chemicals. Hence, PVC or TPR grommets would be a safer choice for the same application. Plastic grommets or even nylon ones are popular choices for their usually available stock.

Special grommets

International Protection Rating 67 plastic or nylon grommets are perfect for external applications requiring a watertight seal.
