Ideal Underground & WeatherProof wire connectors offer extra ruggedness
By Renée Francoeur
August 11, 2015 – Ideal WeatherProof and UnderGround wire connectors come pre-filled with a non-hardening, silicone-based sealant to safeguard wiring from damaging elements.
The connectors also eliminate the need for heat-shrinking conductor splices, resin packs, or multi-step corrosion kits. Both exceed the test standards of UL 486D and are rated to 600V.
The WeatherProof connectors provide the ideal wiring solution for a decorative patio or deck lighting, outdoor power outlets, basements, carports, marine shore-power, and dock lighting. They handle copper wire sizes from No. 22 to No. 6 AWG, plus feature colour-coding to indicate applicable wire ranges.
The UnderGround below grade/direct burial connectors are manufactured with an extra-thick, thermoplastic shell. They will handle wire combinations as small as No. 20 AWG or as large as No. 8 AWG.
