New packaging holds continuous cable lengths up to 6,000 feet, reducing material handling and labor costs compared to traditional-sized reels
AFC Cable Systems, a leading manufacturer of armored cable, announces a new Gaylord box packaging solution, ideal for electrical contractors and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) focused on prefabrication and agile off-site construction. The Gaylord pallet-sized corrugated bulk storage box holds one continuous length of Type MC Cables or Type AC Cables up to 6,000 feet.
The new packaging solution reduces material handling and scrap and provides significant savings and operational efficiencies for OEM manufacturers and contractors performing pre-fabricated assemblies. AFC's Gaylord packaging solution is more efficient when compared to purchasing multiple 1,000 feet reels or 2,500 feet barrels. Contractors can now bring in a Gaylord box and leave it in place until the box is empty reducing random lengths and packaging waste - no need for forklifts to dispose of large and heavy cable reels to make room for the next reel.
