The Significance of Using the Right Utility Supplies for Cable Installations

January 08, 2021

During the past decade, the networks of cables and wires supplying essential power and communication services continue to rise steadily with urban expansion growing. As cable line installers diligently install and repair lines, the demand for quick and cost-effective utility supply and services has also grown. The efficiency of the service is usually achieved through the use of the right tools and equipment for specific tasks. Without them, installing cables and utility wires can be very challenging or even impossible. The use of these tools are economical and saves time as well. They also facilitate reliable, precise, and efficient installation that requires minimal to no alterations. 


Utility supply tools and equipment vary tremendously and have a broad range of applications.


For example, using the right termination or punch-down tools can enhance productivity by installing Cat5 jacks. This particular tool used to terminate telecommunication cables is available in three types: manual, impact and multi-wire. Other primary cable installation tools used by professionals are hydraulic cable cutters, which are important for a quick and safe cut. Special cutters are designed with handles that leverage the cutting power and tails and reduce hand fatigue. 


There is also the cable stripper that comes with an adjustable gauge. This tool is needed for any cabling job. A high-quality cable stripper ensures easy and quick removal of outer insulation from all twisted cable pairs, shielded or unshielded, and multi-core cables. If alternative but generic tools are used for this task, such as a pocket knife or ordinary scissors, they can strip more sheath than necessary which can damage the cable itself. 


Other essential utility supply tools include cable pulling grip, cable cutters, duct rodder, pull tape, fibre blowers, reel trailer, crimpling pliers, voltage detectors for protection, and many more. With the absence of these tools, installing and repairing cables can be taxing. If your business is looking for high-quality tools and service, AMAC Equipment provides an extensive list of these tools to help you achieve a successful cable installation project.
