Steel Cable.  We have multiple diameters of unused galvanized steel cable.  Click Here for Cable Prices>>

productHISTORY Yes, this is unused cable.  It comes from a manufacturing process where they need super long lengths of continuous cable.  When the spool gets down under 500' of cable they put on a new big spool.  So, the the cable we have is the drops or remnants left over.  So, for example, one of our 4,000' spools is actually multiple 100'-500' lengths of cable totaling 4,000'.

repurposedPROJECT "Your unused, galvanized cable has worked well for temporary safety railing on our job sites." Bill Anderson in Utah

Your Ideas "I am considering it for use as a cofferdam. When I worked in road construction in Virginia Beach, Va. we started seeing the use of water inflated bags similar to this laid in drainage ditches, small streams, tributaries, etc. and filled with water to temporarily hold back the flow of the stream. Much easier to use and move around compared to the old fashioned driven sheet pile or dirt cofferdams." - Ray

* A.C.E.  This acronym stands for AttributesCharacteristicsEngineering.  We use this acronym to tell you a little about a used material and what qualities it has in hopes that someone can find a "repurpose" for it.  Asked another way...what did the material do in its 1st life that might help identify a very different, 2nd life for it?
