Running cables can be difficult, especially if you do not have the leading cavity wall feeder. Some electricians use cable rods, but they are straight and cannot go through a wall cavity. The best solution is to get the Australian-made tool called The Ferret. Introduced in 2001, The Ferret has a wheeled end that allows it to glide over obstacles. The Ferret also has the balance of being rigid and flexible, which allows it to bend and then return to its original shape. If you are working on a two storey building, you can purchase the eight-metre-long Ferret, which can cover the wall height.
For twenty years, this cavity wall cable feeder has been a leader the market. The Ferret has a level of structural integrity and flexibility that no imitation can match. This tool will maintain its straightness when coiled but flex in the direction you want. The material used to manufacture The Ferret is non-conductive, with high tensile strength, and durability.
Adding or extending cables in your house can be challenging, but it is rather easy if you have a cavity wall cable feeder of this type. The Ferret enables you to add or extend cables in wall cavities, suspended ceilings, and confined spaces. You can use the ferret for horizontal, corner, diagonal, top-down, and bottom-up wiring.
The Ferret can assist with several applications, including electric wiring, security system cables, telephone wiring and TV antennas. The application process is also easy to follow. If you do not have an opening, drill a minimum 20mm diameter hole into the surface to create an entry point. Tie your cable to the tail end of The Ferret and insert the wheel end into the entry point. Using the body, direct The Ferret in the intended direction until the wheel end reaches the required location. Finally, pull the ferret through the opening to reveal the cable. Untie your cable and coil the Ferret up, ready for the next job.
There are several reasons why electricians choose to use our cavity wall cable feeder. For a start, the Ferret is manufactured and assembled by skilled trades in Australia. We also designed The Ferret for single-person use, so you can reduce the labour required when feeding cables. The application process is simple ensuring anyone can use it.
Our cavity wall cable feeder is non-conductive and corrosion-resistant. Every purchase comes with a 12-month warranty to guarantee the tool’s performance and durability. Our tool also has a rigid body made from a flexible but tensile glass fibre reinforced polymer, which prevents it from buckling or bending. The Ferret’s head has excellent resilience with flex fatigue resistance and spring-like properties. Our cavity wall cable feeder can also withstand a wide temperature range so that you can use it for various applications. All these reasons will save you time and frustration.
