Busways – An Alternative to Conduit and Cable

As an industrial electrician, I've installed miles of conduit. And of course, once installed, even more miles of cables and conductors had to be snaked through it.

Even with raceways, it's always at least a two-step process – raceway, then conductors.

Of course, that will always be a part of many installations.

Could Busway Be the "Besway" for Power Distribution?

Sorry for the play on words. Couldn't resist.

Even though the headline's kind of funny, power distribution is no laughing matter, right?

In major commercial and industrial construction, getting your electrical distribution network is a vital part of the job. Face it … everything runs on electricity.

Child Safety … Is It Worth the Money?

Kids. You've got to love the little rug rats. It's so much fun to watch as they scoot around the floor. For years, my wife ran a childcare service from our home.

We also have three grandkids of our own, all of them girls. The oldest is seven (going on 15) and the other two are four-year-old twins.

Floor Boxes (and Floor Box Accessories)

It was during a lecture in the school auditorium where I came across my first floor box. I was bored to death and looking around for something to pass the time. When I glanced down, I noticed a brass device on the floor beneath me.

It had what looked like a round cover with a slot in the middle. Just perfect for sticking in a quarter and turning.

Sure enough, the lid came off and an electrical outlet appeared before my eyes.

Adding Corrosion Protection to Liquidtight Fittings with PVC Coatings

Steel fittings in a variety of formulations have been liquidtight raceway products of choice since the early days of electrical distribution. When these products have been galvanized, a thin zinc coating offers corrosion resistance for use in many outdoor and exterior applications where non-galvanized steel might otherwise rust through. But electrical wiring requires extra protection in more significantly corrosive environments. So, contractors need to consider materials that offer more advanced protection in settings where chemicals, salt spray and other damaging substances are common.
