Hot Product – Maxcell Innerduct

One of our hottest products lately has been Maxcell Innerduct. Maxcell is a fabric innerduct that has cells sewn into it for easy cable installation. It is designed to conform to the shape of cables placed within it, reducing wasted space in the conduit.

According to Maxcellinnerduct.com, Maxcell is installed two times faster than traditional innerduct and requires up to 30% less manpower for installation, significantly reducing the project cost. Additionally by using Maxcell, you can fit up to three times as many cables per conduit than you could when using traditional innerducts.

Maxcell comes in several varieties including standard, fire-resistant, and detectable. Standard Maxcell is available in a variety of configurations from 2” to 4” and in 1, 2, and 3 cell configurations. Standard Maxcell has a melting point of 419 degrees, is resistant to ground chemicals and petroleum products and is pre-lubed.

Maxcell is used by a variety of industries include the CATV, Telecom, and Power industries. Maxcell has also been successfully installed by municipalities, colleges and universities, and by the military and government.

Here at Comstar Supply, we stock the standard 3” 3-Cell Maxcell Innerduct. By purchasing master reels, we are able to maintain a constant inventory and offer our customers custom cuts. We strive to keep several thousand feet in stock at all times so we can provide shipment either same day or next day to our customers.

"The Larry-Mobile" - Comstar's Mobile Showroom

Have you seen it? What we affectionately call the Larry-Mobile is the newest vehicle in the Comstar Supply fleet.

Larry Anderson, our VP of Sales, can be seen driving around Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey in what is essentially a mobile show-room. His black van with sharp white letters and the Comstar Supply logo is stocked with the must haves for the job site and some of our best selling and even lesser known products.

Whether it is a duct rodder, paddle bit or pulling grip, the van is equipped with it all. Larry has an extensive background in the telecommunication and utility industry and is always more than eager to show off our company’s product line.

The van enables Larry to visit customers and let them see, touch and in some cases, even try out our products. It is also a great resource for demonstrating new product lines. This was the just the case when Triple D unveiled their HDD line of reamers, bits and cross overs. Customers got a hands on feel for the quality of the Triple D products.

If anyone on the east coast is interested in having Larry stop by and visit with the van, please do not hesitate to contact us! And if you see the Larry Mobile out and about, be sure to honk and wave!
