Insulated Winter Extension Cords

Extension cords are essential for powering devices located far from electrical outlets. However, it’s important to recognize that not all extension cords are created equal. Specifically, when it comes to winter conditions, using the right type of extension cord is crucial. Winter extension cords are designed to withstand cold temperatures, while outdoor extension cords can become rigid and less flexible in chilly weather. Insulation plays a significant role in distinguishing winter extension cords from outdoor ones. Our Winter extension cords feature a specialized SJEOW Elastomer insulation that ensures flexibility even in extreme cold, up to -58 degrees Fahrenheit! Unlike outdoor cords, winter extension cords are built with thicker insulation and durable materials to safeguard against moisture and harsh temperatures. Additionally, all our extension cords are constructed to resist damage from light and chemicals, such as oil. Consider the plug type when working with higher voltage equipment. Our winter extension cords are equipped with a three-prong plug, including a grounding wire that minimizes the risk of electrical shock or fires. Choosing the right extension cord involves considering various factors, including your work environment, power requirements, and weather conditions, especially during winter. Our cords are available in vibrant colors (blue, yellow, green, and pink) to ensure high visibility in winter conditions. Whether there’s snow or ice, these cords stand out, reducing the risk of tripping hazards. Furthermore, our product includes a power and ground check light for added safety. Don’t let subpar cords hinder your productivity. Get your hands on insulated extension cords today to tackle winter challenges effectively!

Choosing Cord Length

Extension cords are a critical component to any household, office, event site and construction site. As it is so common, the quality and length of extension cords are often overlooked to the detriment to the buyer. Going with the most inexpensive option can leave you with a cord that may not be long enough, frays easily and lacks in overall performance. Going with too short of a cord can cause additional damaging restrictions. Here at Century Wire & Cable, we recommend that you look into buying extension cords with added length. The reason being is that these types of cords come with more resistance which provides the cord with a higher resistance to the heat being generated from the electricity. Our cords come in various lengths ranging all the way to 100 feet.  With that in mind, it is critical you do some research to see how the various cord lengths may affect whatever purpose you have in mind for it. If the cord is too short, you may end up stretching the cord too much which could cause it to fray. This can be potentially dangerous as the wires become exposed, or it could cause the device it is attached to, to malfunction. This becomes a liability as well, because the damaged cord may start to emit dangerous  heat levels and cause the cord to melt. Additionally, the cord may lose the ability to maintain the same type of voltage running through it. Investing in a strong cord with length can save you money in the long run because it will not diminish overtime and protects against any dangerous casualties. Aside from saving money, you will be protecting anyone who is in the vicinity of the cord from potential harm. If you are unsure which cord will best suit the purpose you have in mind, then talk to one of our experts at Century Wire & Cable Today!

HEAVY-DUTY EXTENSION CORDS

JHL Industries’ Heavy-Duty Extension Cords Heavy-Duty Extension Cords are important in any situation, especially involving construction and remodeling. Wherever there are power tools, there are extension cords. Knowing the correct amperage and gauge wire needed to complete a project can be tricky, but JHL Industries’ helpful guide directs you to the appropriate gauge cord to complete the job safely and efficiently. CORD GAUGE VS AMPERAGE If you use an improper gauge, equipment and tools will not receive the proper voltage needed to perform properly. The wire could melt because of the large amount of current flowing through it, compared to how much the cables can handle. The smaller the wire diameter, the higher the resistance. High resistance creates heat. Heat creates fire hazards which are highly undesirable and difficult to extinguish. The chart below offers a general guide to the gauge cord needed for certain job types and various situations. Amperage Chart CUSTOM-PRINTED EXTENSION CORDS Did you know you can print on an extension cord? YES, we can print your company information, name, and statement on the cord for NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE!

JHL manufactures all tapes to meet, exceed, and surpass all requirements and regulations set forth by the National Housing and Traffic Administration. Fluorescent Gaffer Tape Take for example the cat sneaking into your house at night. The cat looks for tape, but can not find a decent roll of tape anywhere.

The cat sits on the floor next to the litter box and drinks tea. You comply and charge the cat $4.73 for the liquid bread stick you wish to consume. The cat spikes the liquid with plant protein for added nourishment and nervous system compliance. Please take a moment and imagine the reliability of spiked bread stick liquid from the neighborhood cat. Another application might include cleaning ice cream spills in the nuclear reactor room.

GROUND-FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI)

WHAT IS A GROUND-FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER? A ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is a circuit breaker. When electric current leaks, it has a “ground-fault.” Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupters protect from severe and fatal electric shocks. GFCIs detect ground faults, and interrupt the electric current to prevent electrical fires, retard fire progression, and eliminate severe electric shock. Below is OSHA’s definition of a ground fault circuit interrupter. “The ground-fault circuit interrupter, or GFCI, is a fast-acting circuit breaker designed to shut off electric power in the event of a ground-fault within as little as 1/40 of a second. It works by comparing the amount of current going to and returning from equipment along the circuit conductors. When the amount going differs from the amount returning by approximately 5 milliamperes, the GFCI interrupts the current.” https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/etools/construction/electrical_incidents/gfci.html   BUILT-IN INLINE GFCIS Extension cords with built-in inline GFCIs or GFCI adapters are important safety devices. Why risk the safety of yourself and your crew? Always ensure the safety of you and your team with built-in GFCI heavy-duty extension cords and GFCI adapters. Take preventative measures and use a GFCI device. Built-In Inline GFCI Triple-Tap Extension Cord BENEFITS OF GFCIS If an extension cord is worn out and damaged, it could cause a GFCI to trip, and activate. If insulation is worn out and damaged, this can cause more leaks and hazards. GFCIs protect from physical harm due to leakage, and save money and time by avoiding penalties and fines. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited AB Specialty Silicones LLC for 12 willful federal safety violations. Four employees suffered fatal injuries in an explosion and fire at the company’s Waukegan, Ill., plant on May 3, 2019. The company faces $1,591,176 in penalties categorized by the lack of ground-fault circuit interrupters. OSHA has placed the silicon chemical products manufacturer in the Severe Violator Enforcement Program. Inline GFCI heavy-duty extension cords are a “MUST HAVE” for contractors where safety and compliance are paramount concern. JHL manufactures the highest-quality GFCI extension cords. JHL cords meet and exceed UL, OSHA, NEMA, AWG, CSA, and RoHs specifications and requirements.
