Building Wire & Cable

Supply electrical current throughout residential, commercial, or industrial buildings with this wire and cable.

THHN Building Wire

Take care of general purpose wiring in branch circuits, control circuits, machine tools, and appliances with THHN, the most commonly used building wire. THHN (thermoplastic high heat-resistant nylon) wire is available in a wider range of gauges and is more heat resistant, but less flexible than TFFN. It's typically run through conduit or cable trays and its durable jacket resists abrasion, protects against shock, and shields the thermoplastic insulation and metal conductor from damage.

Solid — 600V AC

PVC Insulation, Nylon Jacket — for up to 194 ° F

Stranded — 600V AC

PVC Insulation, Nylon Jacket — for up to 194 ° F

TFFN Fixture Wire

With its durable jacket that resists abrasion, TFFN wire protects against shock and shields the thermoplastic insulation and metal conductor from damage. It's typically run through raceways specifically designed for fixture wire. TFFN (thermoplastic flexible fixture nylon) is more flexible than THHN but less resistant to heat and is only available in two gauges. It can be used for control circuits, machine tools, and appliances, but not for branch circuits.

PVC Insulation — Nylon Jacket — for up to 194 ° F

Stranded — 600V AC

PVC Insulation — Nylon Jacket — for up to 194 ° F

Nonmetallic Sheathed Cable (NM-B)

Run this flexible, sheathed cable in dry, indoor settings to wire branch circuits for luminaires, devices, and appliances. NM-B (nonmetallic heat-rated) cable is a popular choice for residential wiring and is typically installed beneath flooring and behind walls and ceilings. Its durable jacket resists abrasion, protects against shock, and shields the thermoplastic insulation and metal conductor from damage.

Flat Cable, 600V AC

PVC Insulation, Nylon Jacket — for up to 194 ° F

UF-B Cable

Lay this sturdy, rigid, flat cable directly in the ground, with or without conduit, for use as a feeder or branch circuit cable. Also known as underground feeder cable, UF-B is commonly used in residential and agricultural settings to operate outdoor post lamps and pumps and to supply electricity to garages, sheds, barns, and other outbuildings. It can also be used in wet indoor settings because it resists moisture and fungus. Its durable nylon jacket resists abrasion, protects against shock, and shields the thermoplastic insulation and metal conductor from damage.

Flat Cable — 600V AC

PVC Insulation, Nylon Jacket — for up to 194 ° F

Bare Copper Building Wire

Use bare copper wire as grounding wire and for overhead power transmission and distribution systems in residential and other lower voltage applications. It has no protective jacket, so it's highly flexible and highly conductive.

Solid — 600V AC

Copper Wire — for up to 194 ° F

Stranded — 600V AC

Copper Wire — for up to 194 ° F

Armored Cable

Also known as metal clad (MC) cable, this armored cable (AC) features a corrugated metal jacket that serves as a conduit to simplify installation, protects the inner wires against wear and damage, and forms a ground path with the cable's grounding conductor. It's typically used for branch circuit wiring in concealed or exposed installations and can be fished through or embedded in plaster.
