The RhinoPac® - Preferred by Installers®
What is RhinoPac®
Beyond the benefits the tangle and twist-free payout the REELEX® coil provides, the Rhinopac® box provides additional benefits inherent in the package.
Yet, while you may think a box is just a box. Think again!
What's so special about a Rhinopac®?
You mean, aside from the tangle and twist-free payout performance? Quite a lot. There’s a reason why the RhinoPac® box has become our standard package for a wide variety of small-diameter cabling.
Weather - Resistant
Premium Grade – Durable & Tough
Box remain sturdy in high humidity and wet conditions in installer’s truck or put outside overnight.
Heavy-Duty Weather Resistant corrugated boxes withstand all types of harsh conditions.
Made with water-resistant adhesive (WRA) for resistance to outdoor weather or rain.
Performance if Damaged
Damaged box? No problem!
Unlike spools which can be rendered unusable if dropped or damaged, the RhinoPac® coil will still dispense perfectly, even when the package isn’t so perfect.
Because the RhinoPac® coil does not rely on any internal packaging component for payout, a destroyed package will still dispense. That means fewer returns, and happier customers.
Easty to carry, stack and store
Spools are awkward to carry, a pain to set up and often require extra equipment just to make their use easier. With RhinoPac®, the built-in handles make it easy to position and carry, and because there is no rotating mass, you can start dispensing whenever you want. No need for stands or brakes.
When shipping, no additional packaging is necessary. Just put on a label and send it out the door. And because RhinoPac® packages have no internal structure, they are far more lightweight than spools or reels.
More reasons to use RhinoPac® boxes
Less waste, more recyclability
When compared with other packaging methods, RhinoPac® allows the greatest opportunity to use recyclable, reusable, compostable, and reclaimed materials. Compost it, recycle it, or sell it. When you use RhinoPac®, you have disposal choices beyond just the dumpster.
Worried about jobsite waste volume? Because spools and reels rarely get broken down prior to disposal, the volume they take up is enormous compared to their weight. Empty RhinoPac® packages take up to 39% less volume when broken down as comparable spools.
Better payout, better performance
All RhinoPac® packages require a payout tube. The purpose of the payout tube is to ensure that each twist in the coil is resolved inside the package prior to existing the coil so as to result in smooth, twist-free payout. Payout tubes also serve to prevent the coil from rotating inside the package. If a payout tube is not used, some loops of the coil would exit the package resulting in twists and possible tangles.
RhinoPac® payout tube features include a smooth, rounded entry, which reduces friction and increases the bend radius of the product as it exits the package and an I-beam design which supports product loops and prevents them from prematurely unravelling. These features result in an (even) smoother cable pulling experience compared with big mouth payout tube – offering smoother pulling “feel”, and lower incidences of premature unravelling in products with inherent twist.
Smaller Package Size
RhinoPac® design allows the coil to compress significantly. By allowing the cable to rest inside the cutaways of the payout tube, the package can be significantly narrower without sacrificing payout performance.
Compared to a standard box of Cat 5 or Cat 6, RhinoPac® boxes are up to 2.5-inches (63mm) narrower than equivalent big mouth payout tube boxes.
Less size means more shipping.
By allowing the coil to compress and removing negative space, RhinoPac® offers a savings of 1 to 3 inches (up to 75 mm) in package width compared to existing big mouth payout tube packaging.
Less width translates to more boxes on a pallet and huge increases in shipping efficiency. Smaller boxes are also welcomed by the end-user, with improvements to logistics efficiencies and shelf space utilization.
This results in a potential 25 to 50% increase in shipping density compared to standard big mouth payout tube boxes depending on product type. Narrower boxes mean more boxes on shelves, less space in trucks and easier shipping and handling.

Yes. Moisture and Water Resistant are great features for RhinoPac® packaging. The boxes are made with water resistant adhesive (WRA) which resistance to outdoor weather or rain. Box will remain sturdy in high humidity and wet conditions.
Yes, RhinoPac® is 100% RoHS Compliant and environmentally friendly.
RhinoPac® is a strong packaging with added hand grips support and anchor tabs on areas that matter most! RhinoPac® uses dual reinforcement handles to prevents the box from tearing apart.
RhinoPac® box are multi-layer box design to maximize the firm handle and add strength to support heavier coils. RhinoPac® corrugated cardboard will stands up to the toughest conditions.
Yes, that’s another great feature on the RhinoPac® packaging. We use different color stripes for different type cables, and different label color for different jacket color. It is extremely easy to locate the type of cable and jacket color on the shelves and an extra-large label with enlarged part number and product description provide better visibility. Cable usage chart is provided on the top of box to note how much cable is used and how much remains.
