Wire Connectors Offer Extra Ruggedness Needed in Wet, Underground Electrical Applications

Ruggedness is the only word that counts when it comes to connecting electrical wiring underground or anywhere moisture, dirt and corrosion are a problem. IDEAL WeatherProof and UnderGround wire connectors come pre-filled with a non-hardening, silicone-based sealant to safeguard wiring from damaging elements for the longest-lasting, most reliable connections. In addition, they eliminate the need for heat-shrinking conductor splices, messy resin packs or multi-step corrosion kits. Both exceed the rigorous test standards of UL 486D and are rated to 600V.

IDEAL WeatherProof connectors are as versatile as they are rugged, providing a wiring solution for places requiring a tough, weatherproof connector. They handle copper wire sizes from #22 to #6 AWG, and feature color-coding to indicate applicable wire ranges. Gripped swept wings help minimize stress on the contractor’s fingers and wrist with no pre-twisting required. Because the connectors are pre-filled, there is no faster, easier way to safely connect wires exposed to rain or damp locations.

IDEAL UnderGround below grade/direct burial connectors are manufactured with an extra-thick, thermoplastic shell for extreme durability and reliable connections. Versatile and timesaving, they will handle wire combinations as small as #20 AWG or as large as #8 AWG.
