I Pity the SPOOL™

Southwire’s SIMpull CoilPAK has introduced packaging innovations that have eliminated the need for conventional reels. The no-lube wire contained in a sturdy, lightweight, molded package with an easy-to-carry handle makes pulling wire seem effortless. Jay Steinkoetter, an electrical contractor in Missouri said, “It feeds itself with the SIMpull jacket and eliminates the need for lube and the mess that entails. This creates the added benefit of pulling past existing wire.”

“The SIMpull CoilPAK payoff changes the way electrical contractors install branch-circuit wiring by eliminating the need for heavy, cumbersome spools,” said Tim Barden, general manager, contractor equipment, Southwire. “The CoilPAK payoff uses an inertia-free pulling design, making the wire much easier to push and pull. CoilPAKs can be used with Southwire’s SIMpull circuit management system.”

After using SIMpull CoilPAK payoffs, Curtis Oubre, an electrical contractor, confidently says, “At the end of the day, I’m not dead tired. I’ll still have the energy left to do the things I like to do… I can work nine hours a day here, and I have no issues with that last hour being unproductive. I’m just as strong at the end of the day as I was at the beginning of the day with these CoilPAKs.”

The CoilPAK payoffs can be stacked on the floor, on a SIMpull hand truck or dolly, in a SIMpull barrel or on the patent-pending CoilPAK Stack. The multi-functionality of this product reduces install time, labor and material waste on the job site. Contractors and electricians can now simplify a once-daunting process to make multiple pulls from a single reel. In fact, one reel can accommodate up to five pulls. Each of these segments can be pulled in sequence without setting up additional reels, and reels can be labeled to identify each pull.

With reduced cost, reduced labor and innovative packaging, the SIMpull CoilPAK pities the spool.
