Sheaves provide easy and unobstructed feeding of utility cable into
conduits and innerducts. You can slide a Cable Feeding Sheave into the end of a
conduit and rotate to align with the desired cable direction, allowing cable to
be fed-in smoothly from any angle. No matter how many directions the cable path
may take, GMP Cable Feeding Sheaves reduce time, physical strain and cable
slippage. Cable Feeding Sheaves are available in sizes that will accommodate 2
to 6 inch (5.08 to 15.24 cm) Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 ducts. Made from
durable steel, GMP Cable Feeding Sheaves' half-circle, split-tube design allows
for easy insertion and removal. Sheave rollers are available in either aluminum
alloy or wear-resistant Nylatron, and they feature maintenance-free,
self-lubricating bearings. Colored in bright yellow, Cable Feeding Sheaves are
highly-visible in dark work environments. GMP Cable Feeding Sheaves are not
designed for use with fiber optic cable due to bending radius requirements.
