Cerro Wire Introduces Steel Pulling Grips
Simple and reliable wire pulling grip lets you pull four times as much wire per day for
healthcare construction & building market
Cerro Wire LLC, a leading manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, introduces a complete range of wire equipped with RectorSeal single-use steel pulling grips, the simple, reliable, and durable single-use wire pulling tool that reduces set up time and lets you pull up to four times more wire per day. Pulling grips, ideal for the healthcare construction and building market, eliminate waste, saving time and money, especially on larger commercial jobs.
Rated for use on THHN and XHHN wire, these steel pulling grips reduce total set up time for a 4-wire pull to less than five minutes. Eighteen sizes are available, ranging from 1 AWG to 750 MCM.
Made with an extremely durable steel body, the pulling grips are far less likely to fail during an installation than a pulling grip made of aluminum. They also have a shorter body length, which allows them to corner better, further reducing failure risk compared to other pulling grips.
The contractor can receive the wire with all three or four wire lengths on a paralleled reel, ready to pull. At the end of each wire is a steel lanyard, used to pull the wire through the conduit; lanyards are of staggered lengths to stagger the heads, making entry into the conduit and through nineties easier. To complete the pull, a contractor simply attaches his rope to the lanyard. After the pull is complete, the grips are simply cut off and are disposable.
“No more taking hours of expensive labor just to prepare to pull wire by preparing pulling ends,” said Rick McDonald, President of Cerrowire Electrical Distribution. “Contractors using our pre-installed steel pulling grips will add significantly to their bottom line.”
