Ideal Volt-Guard 1000V fiberglass fish tape

May 1, 2010 | By Anthony Capkun

The Ideal Volt-Guard is the first fish tape, says the company, to incorporate 1000V non-conductive fiberglass into a stiff rectilinear tape design. A fiberglass eyelet replaces the standard metal eyelet, protecting both the electrician and the system, while also sliding easily through the tightest conduit bends. The tape is enclosed within Ideal’s patented Tuff-Grip Pro case; constructed of polypropylene plastic, the Tuff-Grip Pro passes repeated drop testing from up to 20 ft in a variety of environmental conditions. The grooved, non-slip handle allows for a safe grasp even when wet, plus is oversized to comfortably fit thick work gloves—including rubber-insulated arc flash gloves. The fish tape is available in 60-ft (#31-542) and 120-ft (#31-544) versions. (Replacement tapes are also available.)
