Ideal says its 3-in-1 Premise Muletape reduces cable installation time on premise jobs by up to 50% while eliminating damage to underground plants and improving worker safety. Premise Muletape combines threading line, measuring tape and winch line, allowing an installer to thread, measure and pull all types of cable with a single product. There is no need for proofing with poly line or pulling with string/rope combinations. Plus, because it is imprinted with sequential footage markings, the installer is not required to go back and manually calculate the needed length of cable. It all means fewer steps in the installation process, material and labour cost savings, and fewer products shipped to the jobsite. Muletape comes pre-lubricated to reduce friction levels and to eliminate the potential for duct cutting. Its lower elongation reduces pulling time while improving safety for workers by doing away with cable snap-back that can result in the installer losing their balance.
