CANFORD CABLE DRUMS - Steel drum, stackable

This range of robust cable-drums all have steel drums, with steel tube cage style frames that are designed to permit the drums to be stacked. All have a friction drum-brake incorporated into the frame to prevent movement in transit. The drums are available with two different styles of side flange - with blanking-plate or with cable tail supports.

‘Blank plate’ versions have a removeable plastic blanking-plate over the hub, which can be punched to accept connectors as required, or removed for access to the inner tail of the cable. ‘Cable tail’ types have an open hub plus four brackets on the flange face to enable the cable tail to be brought out from the hub of the drum at a gentle angle (important for coaxial and essential for fibre cables) and coiled and secured around the brackets.

All models have a folding winding-handle on the drum flange. Drums and frames are black.

Ordering Note

All figures given are based upon a theoretical ‘tight pack’ and do not take into account any maximum weight loadings for drums being exceeded. It is recommended that an allowance of up to 30% be made to accommodate loose winding. A lower percentage could be used if the crew are known to always wind the drums neatly!
