What is it?
Exportguard is the best product for protecting your wire and cable in the most demanding shipping and handling situations. Our heat-scored Exportguard at L-S Industries is our most protective reel wrap. Additionally, it has many advantages over other products being used to protect cable, tubes and other products shipped overseas on reels.
- Similar to the heat-scored Cableguard, Exportguard is much heavier, thus providing protection for extreme shipping and handling situations.
- When laminated with foam, Exportguard often replaces wood lagging, thus dramatically reducing packaging cost and improving worker safety.
- When supplied with foam, a weather-resistant seal is provided at the flange.
- Exportguard is both weather-proof and recyclable.
4 Reasons to Use Exportguard
Exportguard is lighter than most wood lagging options. Therefore, it allows for significant cost savings as well as additional saving in your outbound freight costs. Customers are reporting 50% to 60% savings over traditional wood lagging options when you factor in the labor savings. In result, this will also help you lower your bids on new projects.
Exportguard is much less labor intensive to apply versus nailing 2×4’s or plywood to the edge of the flanges. Additionally, it takes injury-prone tools like nailers and staplers out of employees hands and eliminates the need to cut down wood products on site. On the customer side of the matter, Exportguard is much easier a customer to take off the reel in the field. Lastly, Exportguard is completely weather-resistant, meaning it will arrive in the same condition it was sent, whereas Plywood and 2×4’s will weather and splinter, causing issues for customers during removal.
Exportguard is completely recyclable, whereas wood products have to be burned or disposed of.
Exportguard resists moisture, as well as most chemicals while protecting your product from the sun’s UV rays. Laminated foam on the underside of the Exportguard overlaps the width of the plastic wrap to create a tight seal. This tight seal keeps water and moisture away from the cable. For extra impact protection, the Exportguard can be wrapped around twice. It is also important to note that the extra protection of double wrapping still costs less than most heat-treated lumber options.
