New products coming soon include:

Powered Supply Reels.  This will be a project that takes a few months, as these will need to undergo field- testing for 3 months, to be sure that all is well.  Once testing is complete and motors ordered, delay time will push this project to the end of this year for completion.  But it is a high priority.

A "hands- free" switch for our electric rewind vacuum reels.  It's taking longer than expected, but the reselts are pretty exciting.

Stay tuned.

 

Price Increases

In response to higher manufacturing costs directly- related to the current tariffs on steel imported to the U.S., we've had to raise some of our prices.

This isn't something that we planned to do, or like doing.  But it had to be.  We will do our best to be as reasonable as possible with this.

 

 No E-commerce on our site

We no longer do E-commerce on our site.  This is due to the fact that we are adding distributors in various areas and will refer you to a distributor if there is one in your immediate area. To place orders, E-mail or call us.

Due to rising steel prices, we recently raised our prices.  We kept these increases as small as possible. While we were adjusting prices on our site, we re- vamped the Van Specific Reel Packages and in the case of "Triangle Reel" packages, added live swivels to those packages, since our Low Profile Supply Reels really should be run "live".

 

New Products Now Available:

Mounting Kit for Low Profile Supply Reels onto Our Standard- Height Vacuum Reels

These new "universal" kits make it much easier than before to install a Triangle Reel Package.  This is because the need for van- model- specific mounts for the upper Low Profile Supply Reels, has been eliminated.  Instead of the necessity of mounting the upper LPSR onto the van walls or ceiling, it's mounted directly to the vacuum reel.  We mount the kits to the vacuum reels before shipping. All you need to do is mount the upper LPSR onto the kit, and install the Vacuum Reel as usual.

If you can install a Vaccum Reel, you can install a Triangle Package!

 

Boom- mounted Low Profile Reels

With the introduction of our new Boom design for LPSR's, you can now get closer to the wall than ever on our 300 ft. capacity Boom Packages. (These do require live swivels, as LPSR's don't accommodate sets of quick disconnects in the storage area well.)

 

Vac Hose Connector for our Vacuum Hose Reels

These new connectors allow connection of any hose cuff (including locking cuffs) directly to our hose reel.  They are available in 2" and 2.5" diameter, for 2" hose and 2.5" hose, respectively.  And they are now included on all of our Electric Rewind Vacuum Hose Reels.

 

Vacuum Reel Stand

Vacuum Reel Stand, to raise vacuum reels up off of the floor and closer to the wall of vans that we do not offer Ceiling Mount Vacuum Reel options for.

Boom Mount for Narrow Profile Supply Reels  and Low Profile Supply Reels, which mounts to the underside of the Vacuum Reel Stand and suspends those reels over the floor, in front of the Vacuum Reel, at the back door of the van.

The overall length of the Vacuum Reel Stand, with reels, including an Xtra Tall Vacuum Reel, allows for it to be installed out the side door, as well as out the back door, of Dodge ProMaster vans.

 

Dual Floor Stand for Narrow Profile Supply Reels:

Our Dual Floor Stands have, as a central advantage over similar floor stands, the feature that their frames are open, so that you ca run plumbing through the center of them easily. (Of course, being built like a tank is another advantage.)

But the tubes that serve as the axles that these reels turn on, now have shaft collars. Adding these collars essentially extends the thread length that the lock bolt passes through, so that the bolt simply can't strip out.

And they have removable axles. This allows you to replace one if it becomes damaged, without having to replace the entire stand. 

We've also added a hole at the top, to serve as a location for the rewind switch for an electric rewind hose reel, so that, if you have one of these in front of your electric vac reel, you will be able to conveniently reach the switch on the stand, which is much closer to the door, than if it was on the vacuum reel, for ease of operation.

 

Van-Model- Specific Reel Packages:

Installation kits for most vans are now available and in stock.

These kits allow you to install our reels in ways that use the minimum amount of space and leave the maximum amount of cargo space available as a result.

New "Riveted" Appearance

All of our hose reels now have a specific "industrial, riveted" appearance characteristic in common.  They are not truly riveted, but the use of carriage bolts to secure parts together makes them appear to be. The resulting appearance provides a unique "first- glance" impression that everyone will recognize and appreciate.

Triangle Reel Configuration Van Packages

With the completed design of the Low Profile Supply Reels, which has been designed to be mounted on the floor of a van, in front of a vacuum reel, for the narrowest possible profile, we now have a way to mount the same Low Profile Reel up high, near the ceiling.  This prevents the necessity of having a supply reel mounted on the siode of the vacuum reel and ensures the minimum width requirement (a.k.a. "footprint") possible in van installations.
