As an installer, having the essentials is ever-important. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting in the field, having the right tools can be the difference between a job well done and a frustrating, time-consuming ordeal. 

These products are not just useful; they are the backbone of effortless installations, ensuring that every task you undertake is executed with precision and efficiency. In this blog, we'll be talking through our top 4 essential products for you to carry around all the time. 

  1. Tape - For tape that won’t let you down, stick with us!

PVC Tape - Black (AC22)

Black PVC tape, also known as electrical tape, is an indispensable tool for installers. Crafted from durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC), it plays a vital role in electrical insulation, protecting against live wires and reducing the risk of shocks and short circuits. Additionally, it excels in bundling cables.

  • Preparation: Ensure clean and dry surfaces before applying.

  • Proper Wrapping: Apply it evenly with slight overlap for a secure seal.

  • Stretching: Avoid overstretching to maintain elasticity and adhesive properties.

  • Cutting: Use a sharp tool to cut it cleanly.

  • Safety: Always adhere to safety guidelines when working with electrical installations.

  • EWC - Even when cold

Self Amalgamated Tape (AC38G)  

Our black self-amalgamating electrical rubber repair tape serves as a valuable derivative of insulating tape, specifically designed for waterproofing connections. Crafted from Ethylene Propylene rubber, it excels in the jointing and repair of power and distribution cables. The application is straightforward: peel off the top protective layer, wrap the rubbery self-amalgamating tape securely around the connection, and watch it rapidly amalgamate under tension to create a waterproof seal. This tape is highly recommended for automotive work and aerial installations, particularly those involving satellite TV setups where cables enter the LNB and polariser.
