Commercial Market

For commercial projects, General Cable’s THHN wire is widely specified for power distribution. Available in a variety of colors to accommodate customers’ needs, THHN can handle most electrical wiring applications, from service entrance and feeders to branch circuits. For harsh industrial environments, Cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation is an ideally suited wiring solution.

General Cable’s Type XHHW-2 is well suited for building wire power distribution, and our Unicon® XLPE wire and cable products can be direct buried in accordance with the National Electric Code (NEC®). Both products offer excellent electrical, thermal and physical properties.

Our aluminum alloy building wire line consists of service entrance cables for residential applications and power distribution feeder cables for commercial, institutional and industrial construction applications. Find out more about General Cable’s STABILOY® and NUAL® Brands of aluminum alloy cables.
