CEW Ideal logo 400

July 17, 2020

IDEAL Industries recently put together a new supply catalogue focused on panel builders and pre-fabrication. The Panel Builders and Pre-Fab Supplies Catalogue, which can be found here, highlights IDEAL’s extensive product offerings for panel builders and pre-fabrication projects. Panel building pre-fabrication is a growing industry in Canada, in part due the increasing complexity of panel design as well as being a streamlined and efficient process favourable to ROI.

IDEAL proudly serves the electrical, construction, maintenance, data communications, aerospace, and original equipment markets as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of quality tools, accessories, and supplies. Over 6,000 items make up the IDEAL family of products. You are likely familiar with some of their signature products, like the Can-Twist™ Wire Connectors, Tight-Sight® Clamp Meters, Yellow 77® Cable Pulling Lubricant, and T®-Stripper Wire Strippers.

In their new catalogue, you will find a wide range of products tailored to the pre-fabrication of electrical panels, from crimp terminals, terminal strips and accessories, and heavy-duty toggle switches to their time-saving Stripmaster series wire strippers and ArmourBand Insulating Wraps. The latter provides an alternative to traditional electrical tape wraps and can be removed without leaving behind adhesive residue.

Another interesting product is the innovative SpliceLine® In-Line Wire Connector. The end-to-end connection of SpliceLine® is a great solution for today’s prefab operations and is perfect for lengthening short wires in tight spaces. The transparent polycarbonate body allows for visual inspection and easily passes through ½” knockouts, providing a secure connection every time.

IDEAL’s Terminal series is designed to be rugged, durable, and easy to install, featuring a phenolic type construction. In addition to the thermoplastic base, the corrosion-resistant screws and hardware provide extended service life. Optional accessories provide convenient, versatile application. Available in a wide variety of circuit configurations, electrical ratings, and center-spacing, there is an IDEAL Terminal Strip for virtually every job.

IDEAL’s 25’ Test Lead Kit is a unique product for panel builders, featuring 3’ and 25’ lead adapters, alligator clips, blade prongs, and outlet plug adapter.

IDEAL is a company that prides themselves on being the ‘Electrician’s Champion’. Their knack for developing innovative and reliable, yet simple to use products translates into a catalogue filled with products to make electricians’ lives easier.
