Designed to reel in, organize and store cables ranging from power cords to cable wire, cable reels are available in an array of styles and sizes with features to accommodate specific applications, industries and safety requirements. By staying up-to-date with key industry terminology such as “static discharge,” “cord caddy” and “motor driven,” you’ll be able to order cable reel models from manufacturers or vendors that meet your space needs and comply with any regulations pertaining to your business.
Also called grounding reels or static grounding reels, static discharge cable reels feature components like non-sparking ratchets to prevent sparks should users wind the cable quickly.
Motor driven reels
Speed the cable winding process with motor driven reels that retract cables at the push of a button. Also called motorized reels, these units can be free standing or mounted on a vehicle, wall or ceiling for added stability.
Hand crank reels
When you need a cable or hose reel for small-scale applications, consider a hand crank reel to save space and electricity. Look for manual reels with removable cranks to conserve storage space.
Plastic cable reels offer lighter weight, no warping and easy assembly. Consider plastic reel models that lock together to store multiple cables securely.
If you need to move cables or cords from place to place, a cord caddy is the right choice. Use cable reels for electrical cords that also feature multiple electrical outlets for convenience. Consider units with a resettable circuit breaker that are also UL listed for safety.
Audio video cable reel
An audio video cable reel is a manual cable reel designed to easily unwind and wind when working with audio video cables. Look for lightweight units with easy grip handles to simplify set up and positioning of audio visual equipment.
