The Iberville®
CI66 series prevents cable damage without obstructing dry wall installation

A complete protector plate family to meet the requirements of CEC Rule 12-516

The Canadian Electrical Code, Rule 12-516 (1) requires that a safety zone of at least 32 mm be left between nonmetallic sheathed cable and the edges of the stud, joists and similar structures through which it is pulled. If the safety zone cannot be respected, cables must be protected using approved metal protection devices.

The new CI66 series!

The solution for increased cable protection.

Canadian Electrical Code: Rule 12-516

Rule 12-516 of the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) states that when a non-metallic sheathed cable is run through studs, joists or similar members the cable must be at least 32mm from the edge of the members otherwise it has to be effectively protected from mechanical injury. In sub-rule, any cable that is installed immediately behind a baseboard shall be effectively protected from mechanical injury from driven nails.

Some provincial authorities are enforcing sub-rule differently than others. While most would read this sub-rule as meaning 32mm from the front of the stud to the hole made to pass the cables, others are insisting that 32mm distance must be from all aspects of the wood stud; depth, width, and height.

The Iberville team has multiple solutions to this code requirement. In the case of a single stud the CI66-XL or the CI66-T can effectively protect the cables from injury during and after drywall installations. In case where two or three studs are side by side or in corners of a room, the CI66-XL-2 will give the required protection.


Introducing the new Elastimold® Recloser

The need for automated reclosers has never been greater, but many of today’s reclosers come with penalties. They weigh too much, and that makes them difficult to install. They aren’t easy to upgrade, so you have to guess about what features to include in case you need them several years from now. What’s more, if the recloser you stock doesn’t come with superior technical support, service and built-in quality, you may find it worse than no recloser at all.

The Elastimold® Recloser addresses all of these problems, and more.
