Cable Reels or Drums have been a useful part of various industries for many years. They were typically used as spools to make it easier to contain and transport cabling and wiring. Traditionally, they have been made from wood, plywood, plastic and steel.
Whilst Cable Reels are commonly used on a larger scale, smaller ones are available for more practical purposes. For example, at Howarth Timber & Building Supplies we offer an Electrical Cable Reel that works as an extensions, allowing you to use electrical tools and equipment in areas that do not have an immediate power supply, such as out in the garden. This type of cable reel makes storage of the power cable easy and compact and comes with plug sockets attached to the main reel for easy use.
