|There is an important and critical component that is not discussed very often as it should be when it comes to the selection of cable or wire’s packaging. Especially, of the type of cable and the cable packaging.|
From a distance, it does not appear like a big deal. Just a cardboard box that helps installers effectively move lots of linear feet of cable and wires. But cable and wire packaging are more than just a way to transport and store cable. It can actually affect the ease of installation.
Several of today’s cable and wire packaging (such as a cable box or cable carton) is:
When you think of these factors, it becomes clear, if not designed correctly, visibly simple cable and wire packaging can slow a project down, increase expenses and potentially damage the cable or wires inside.
As you choose cable and wire’s connectivity for your next project, never forget to consider the packaging it comes in.
In this article, Mr. Gaurav Jalan, Founder, and Director of Packman Printing and Packaging, India’s leading packaging company (also one of the largest manufacturer and supplier of electric cable wire boxes) talk about things to consider when packaging cable and wires.
Here, they are.
Lightweight And Cost-Effective To Ship
Instead of boxes that include heavy wooden reels, opt for cable packaging that utilizes lightweight yet extremely heavy-duty PVC reels. This will decrease the labor required to move the boxes and lower the costs linked with sending them out to job sites.
This might look obvious, but several cable and wire boxes do not offer reinforced handles. Or, if they have, they’re located on the side – where they’re difficult to reach, difficult to hold and can end up causing injury). In these cases, handler sometimes attempts to lift the box from its dispensing holes which causes it to fall apart. Opt for a box that integrates reinforced handles on the front and back of the box so that it can be grabbed easily and won’t fall apart.
A Box That Can Face Up To Shipping And Handling
Several cable boxes use a traditional single-wall cardboard design is not strong enough. Instead, go for a double-wall corrugated cardboard design that will stand up to crushing, puncturing and tearing. If the box is made to withstand use and abuse, it’s also possibly certified to higher freight standards.
If your packages have water-resistant coating it will ensure that during rain or if something is spilled accidentally over your box. Then that coating will ensure that your packages containing cables and wires will be safe from coming to contact with any kind of moisture.
