Wire wrapping is very old system, made for single cored wire, this is
brittle and breaks easily, you will get a lot o faults unless it is
solidly mounted. and the cable is rigid and wel protected. 

unless its mounted in a rack, I would look for another method. 

Even Telecom dont wire wrap anymore
