Reel Packaging

L-SI provides much of North America with custom reel packaging products like reel wraps, drum wraps, flange liners, and other reel packaging products. All these products are cut to your exact reel specifications. These are helpful in protecting wire & cable, flexible pipe, and high-end rope that are shipped and stored on reels.

Light-duty Reel Wraps

CLOSED-CELL FOAM

Foam is lightweight and inexpensive but provides cushion and protection against impact events.

KRAFT SINGLE-FACE

An inexpensive way to protect your reels from light impact events. Primarily used on in-process reels.

POLY-COATED LINERBOARD

Linerboard offers a slight bit of impact protection but is more commonly used to give a finished look to the reel. The poly-coating on the outside helps it withstand rain during transit.

PRINTABLE XF FILM

A very durable extruded plastic film known for it’s tear strength. Offers no impact protection but gives the reel a finished look.

WOVEN SCRIM

Similar to XF but not quite as rigid. Gives reels a nice finished look and helps keep rain and dust off the cable.

THERMAL WRAP

Thermal wrap is designed to keep heat away from the cable.
