/PRNewswire/ -- To dramatically enhance productivity and worker safety, Southwire has introduced the SIM
PAK™ payoff, changing the way electrical contractors install branch circuit wiring.
PAK payoff eliminates the need for heavy, cumbersome spools. Instead workers use a special, patent-pending process to coil NoLube
wire contained in a sturdy, yet lightweight package, which results in a completely tangle-free pull. The SIM
PAK payoff uses the same inertia-free pulling design as the SIM
WireBARREL™ wire drum, making the wire much easier to push and pull.
This innovative packaging allows for increased versatility on the job site. The package is molded with a handle that makes it easy to carry around, and when pulling wire from the package, it can lay flat or stacked directly on the floor or lift. Southwire also offers a cart, dolly and hand truck that are all easily maneuverable and allow for installation of multiple SIM
"We've tested the Southwire SIM
PAK payoff on a number of jobsites and the feedback from contractors has been nothing short of remarkably enthusiastic," said
, president of Southwire's Electrical Division. "The SIM
PAK payoff is a giant leap forward making the entire circuit wire installation process safer and more productive. Contractors tell us the days of the wire spool and trying to match wires and pull from a wire wagon are numbered."
The addition of the SIM
PAK payoff completes Southwire's SIM
Circuit Management System, and it's the latest example of Southwire's revolutionary combination of wiring, materials, equipment and services. When all of Southwire's SIM
Circuit Management System products are used together, they combine to help provide a significant impact on the time, margins and labor associated with all of your circuit pulls.
"The launch of the SIM
PAK payoff is a game-changer," Adkins said. "We are helping contractors beat their circuit branch wiring budgets by eliminating wasted time caused by having to handle numerous wire spools on a job site. Simply said, we've made circuit wire management completely Spool-Proof™."
