BD Loops - Reverse Loop / Safety Loop - 4' X 10' or 6' x 8' Direct Burial Performed Loops with 60' Lead
Preformed Direct Burial Loops
Used for installations under concrete, asphalt, pavers, or gravel roads. The most common installation is the loop tied directly to the rebar before concrete is poured. Wire is UL 493 certified designed for a direct burial application.
Unlike loops wrapped through PVC, The BD Loops Direct Burial Loop does not have an air pocket resulting in fewer repeat service calls due to phantom detections caused by ground vibration. Built with a high quality solid 14AWG wire out performing other preformed loops with twice as much copper
Per foot and increased tensile strength.
Solid 14AWG wire also results in the direct burial loop being very ridged giving the installer the opportunity to easily set-up and layout the loop and prevents the loop from falling in-between the rebar patter. Twisted jacketed lead-in prevents “coil back” from normal twisted lead-in, preventing wasted time untangling lead-in wires. The loop wire has arrows indicating the direction of current allowing easy understanding of phasing.
Each direct burial loop comes with an installation kit including easy to understand instructions, cable ties for installation on top of rebar, ground stakes for under gravel roads, and stickers for easy identification after the loops have been installed.
Recommended installation tips:
•Offset the direct burial loop from the rebar pattern.
•Run lead-in through conduit.
•Residential applications recommend a 4’ short leg of the loop.
•Commercial application recommends a 6’ short leg of the loop.
