Berk-Tek's innovative smartPAK packaging technology saves you money, time and space. With 1,500 feet of copper cable in each box, smartPAK delivers the convenience and ease of a traditional pull-box with the additional benefit of 50% more cable than 1,000-ft. boxes. According to contractors this virtually eliminates cable scrap when installing standards' compliant 300-foot horizontal cable runs or even more typical 150-foot runs.

Here's how it works. Berk-Tek’s smartPAK allows a total of ten pulls in today’s typical 150-ft. installations, or five pulls of the maximum distance of 300 feet with virtually no leftover cable - no scrap. A traditional 1,000-ft box allows only three maximum runs of 300 feet or six total pulls out to 150 feet, both resulting in 100 feet of cable (10%) as leftover scrap. In addition, fewer boxes are used saving cardboard and also transport trips to the jobsite. (See the comparison chart.)

smartPAK 1,500 ft. is offered in all colors for both plenum and riser versions of LANmark™-1000 (enhanced Category 6), LANmark™-6 (standard Category 6); LANmark-350™ (enhanced Category 5e) and HyperPlus 5e (standard Category 5e).
