Southwire Tools & Equipment continues to demonstrate their leadership position with their recent introduction of SIMpull Fish Tapes. Their new line features a spiral extruded polymer design that reduces the amount of effort to push or pull fish tape through EMT or PVC conduit. Unlike competitive fiberglass products, the new design provides better flexibility and is kink resistant. SIMpull Fish Tapes are available in nine models, two tape diameters and various lengths to fit most applications.
The SIMpull Fish Tapes won’t bend or break like steel and fiberglass- however, they do incorporate the best feature of each, ensuring you get the strength of steel and the non-conductive properties of fiberglass. This feature especially helps when running through 90-degree bends, allowing it to roll off the turns and continue moving without causing damage to the fish tape.
Four models in the SIMpull Fish Tape line feature a glow in the dark, non-conductive leader- available in four lengths and in 3.0mm or 4.5mm diameters. Non-conductive from end to end, these models allow for easy installation over existing wires, and are a direct replacement for fiberglass fish tapes
The remaining five models include a swiveling flexible metal leader, enhancing fishing speed and performance. While the leader is metal, the rest of the tape is not and is a safety advantage over steel. Both models of fish tapes are extremely durable as well as significantly lighter in weight. Southwire has a long history of designing, manufacturing and distributing a wide range of tools and equipment, made with the electrician in mind. Southwire now extends their legacy with the SIMpull Fish Tape, maximizing productivity and minimizing worker fatigue.
Two Leader Types Available
Fast, Easier Pulls
While the SIMpull Fish Tapes are increasingly popular, Southwire continues to offer customers traditional steel and fiberglass products. Designed to easily reach above ceilings, under carpets and through walls to install wire. Both products provide superior results, available in multiple lengths, laser etched footage markings to help identify length of pull and high-impact, durable cases for longer lasting performance and use.
