  1. Lead Sheathed Wiring

In this type of wiring system, conductors are insulated with VIR and have a lead aluminum alloy acting as an additional sheath. This sheath protects the cables from moisture and corrosion. Link clips keep the cabling affixed to walls or ceilings while the lead sheath is grounded in the earth for safety reasons; lead conducts electricity, after all.

  1. Surface Conduit Wiring

There are two essential types of conduit wiring systems. Surface conduit wiring involves conduits that are directly installed along the ceiling or walls of a building. The electric company makes holes of equal distance along the wall where conduits are installed. The conduits consist of steel tubes which are held against the wall using hooks.

  1. Concealed Conduit Wiring

With concealed conduit wiring, conduits are actually hidden in the walls behind plastering. Obviously, this is more preferable from an aesthetic point of view, making it one of the most popular types of wiring systems in use currently. Along with the aesthetic benefits, some electrical contractors find that this type of system offers additional protection for the conduits.

To find out what type of system is ideal for your needs, consult with an expert. They’ll account for a wide range of factors in order to determine which system is right for your property.
