Business owners who manage large amounts of products and recycling need to know the materials they work with. Purchasing wire, without knowing specifications and uses for the warehouse, isn’t good enough. Rather, you need to know what kind of wire you’re working with and what its advantages are.
Box wire, one of the most commonly found wires in warehouses, provides specific qualities and comes in different gauges, all of which you’ll want to be familiar with.
Vulcan Wire is a leading provider of box wire. Our team is ready to help you choose the best product at the right size for your business!
Box wire is a high-tensile strength wire that’s used in industrial applications. The name is derived from the fact that the wire is packaged in a cardboard box, unlike coil wire that comes wrapped in a coil around a steel centerpiece.
The wire can be used in baling machines to strap recycling goods together, secure loads together by hand, and for other similar uses. Although it’s most often purchased by industrial businesses like warehouses, box wire is versatile and simple enough to use. Many homeowners and small business owners without balers are likely to have a supply of the wire as well.
Box Wire Specifications
Box wire is not a one-size fit all type of product. Rather, you have several options, depending on where you purchase the wire from. Vulcan Wire has several box wire sizes that range from 10-gauge to 14.-5 gauge. All of these products are made from high-quality 1018 carbon and come as 100-pound coils in uniquely designed, perforated cardboard boxes. Furthermore, all gauges are black annealed wires that come with several highly attractive properties.
Benefits of Box Wire
There are many great reasons to use box wire. Here are just a few of its benefits:
Most box wire, like the wire offered from Vulcan Wire, is annealed. A wire that is annealed has undergone a specific heat treatment process to alter its properties. The result is a wire that has increased utility. Additionally, box wire, unlike coil wire, the product is protected from the elements until the time it’s used.
Box wire comes with a tensile strength of up to 75,000 psi, meaning it has the necessary strength to excel in a variety of applications. Businesses can use this wire to strap down heavy metals, textiles, and other difficult materials. It can also be used in agricultural and shipping applications where exposure to harsh conditions is likely.
Businesses need durable products. Box wire is exactly that, thanks to the annealing process. This type of wire is a durable, malleable, and flexible product that can withstand exposure to the elements. Furthermore, it can be stretched and wrapped around bales easily while maintaining the necessary strength integrity.
