Spring Reels

Arbor Reels / Spring Reels (Open) - Metal & Plastic Construction

John Evans’ offers a wide array of “open style” construction spring reels, also known as arbor reels. In an open reel, the cable is exposed, wrapped around the exterior circumference of the reel, and contained between two flanges. This type of spring powered cable retracting device is what is known in the elevator industry as the “Door Closer” reel or Spirator.

We offer two types of reels:

  • Plastic Arbored Open Reels
  • Metal Arbored Open Reels

Open reels are available in a variety of sizes:

  • Diameters range from 1.64” to 6.0”
  • Widths vary from 0.49” to 1.63”
  • Some of the smaller sizes are available with plastic cases, and all are available with metal cases.
