Parachute birds are a type of line-blowing projectile that is used to run cables through long or complex duct runs. They are designed to be used in occupied ducts, which means that they can be used without having to evacuate the area.
Parachute birds work by using the airflow in the duct to propel them forward. The large open mouth of the parachute bird maximizes airflow, allowing it to travel faster and further than any other projectile. This makes it the ideal tool for quickly and easily running cables through long or complex duct runs.
Parachute birds are typically made of nylon or vinyl. Nylon is a more common material, but vinyl is more durable and can withstand harsh environments. Parachute birds are available in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your needs.
How to Use Parachute Birds
To use a parachute bird, you will need to attach the cable to the bird's eye. Then, insert the bird into the duct and turn on the airflow. The parachute bird will travel through the duct, pulling the cable behind it.
Once the parachute bird has reached the end of the duct, the cable will be pulled out. You can then use the cable to connect your equipment.
Benefits of Using Parachute Birds
There are several benefits to using parachute birds, including:
- They are non-destructive, so they will not damage your ducts.
- They are reusable, so you can save money in the long run.
- They are available in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your needs.
- They are easy to use, even in occupied areas.
If you need to run cables through long or complex duct runs, then parachute birds are the perfect solution. They are non-destructive, reusable, and easy to use.
