Cable reels are round, drum-shaped objects. An example of a cable reel is a spool used to carry electrical wires.
Cable reels are usually made from three types of material, which each have their own specific uses. Wood, plastic, and plywood are the main materials used to construct cable reels. Wood is used in several different ways. They can be steel supports to make reels that have multiple uses. They are also often used in exports, with one-way drums manufactured to last for a single trip only. They are capable of carrying large loads, and are usually made from a strong, resinous wood.
Drums made from plywood are designed for lighter loads, and are cheaper than the other types of reel. They are primarily used in the building industry. They are made from poplar or birch ply, which results in a strong, lightweight drum. Usually these plywood reels are used once before being disposed of.
Plastic drums are usually made from recycled plastic. They are mainly used for cables that are lightweight. As the materials they are made from are recycled, they are environmentally friendly as well.
