Graybar SmartReel
SmartReel worked really well. I liked the ease of use. There was less lifting up of heavy reels and jacks, thus reducing the possibilities of jobsite injuries.

Why Graybar SmartReel is Different

  • We specialize in agile and adaptable jobsite changes, backed by Graybar’s full offering of services, including:

    • Paralleling – Spool up to five wires/cables together on one reel, enabling faster and easier cable installation by reducing the number of cable pulls.
    • Pulling heads – As we cut and parallel your wire, we can install pulling heads to get your crew pulling wire immediately. Pulling heads work with both copper and aluminum. We can supply crimp-on pulling heads in bulk or have them installed in our warehouse on each reel to save your crew prep time before the pull.
    • Kitting – Kitting is the packaging of components to provide a complete “kit” of materials that are required for assembly or installation. Graybar develops special packaging for a few items or we can kit, crate and ship large components.
    • Staging and storage – For on-time, accurate delivery. We offer onsite trailer options for central staging and planning that we can manage for you. We can also help you decrease loss and theft with our job box and clamshell stock replenishment services.
    • Integrated supply – Our vast product offering of electrical and data communications products tied with our logistics services allows you to streamline your supply chain and reduce overall procurement costs.

*Subject to jobsite variances. For use on flat surfaces.
