What are the different types of electrical supplies in our store?

Electrical materials or supplies play an integral role in a building construction project to connect your building to an electrical power source. Electrical parts may vary from tiny residential circuit breakers to large industrial switches.

No matter the size of your project, at Pioneer Hardware, we promise you a large inventory of electrical building products and supplies to suit your unique project goals without any hassles.

In a nutshell, extension cords and power strips connect to equipment way beyond the vicinity of a power outlet to supply them with power. Receptacles and wall switches serve as fixed access points for connecting to and controlling electrical power.

Connectors and plugs build and ensure consistency of electrical connections. Lastly, wire management products simply organize, protect, and support cables and wires.

Now that you have painted a vivid picture of what electrical supplies accomplish in a building, let us delve a bit more into the categories of products you can expect to find at Pioneer Hardware for your project in and around Ruaka, Kiambu, or Nairobi.

Among other electrical supplies, we provide:

·         Electrical wires

Electrical wires run as individual conductors of electricity. It could be a copper or aluminum wire that transports electricity through an electric circuit. The wire may run openly, through a pipe (conduit), overhead, or even underground depending on the application.

Depending on the load connected, wires for house wiring can range from 1 sqm S/C, 1.5 sqm S/C, 2 sqm S/C, and 2.5 sqm S/C to 4 sqm S/C, and so on. Using different wires helps prevent short-circuiting.

·         Electrical cables

Unlike individual wire conductors, electrical cables represent a group of wires bundled up in a single sheathing to transport electric current. Common applications of cables are in electrical appliances like refrigerators, computers, TVs, and the like, as well as in data transmission by telecom companies.

Typically, cables are labeled differently according to the number of wires, insulation type, and the wire gauge. For home wiring, most cables are generally labeled as 14-2G, 14-3G, 600V, and 12-2 w/G, among other labels.

However, in terms of insulation, the wires may be labeled as THHN, THWN, THW, or XHHN. The T stands for thermoplastic material for fire resistance, H for heat resistance, HH for high heat resistance, W for application in damp and wet locations, X for flame-retardant material, and N for nylon coating for better oil resistance.

·         Electrical conduits

An electrical conduit refers to a tube carriage that houses electrical cables either for energy or data transmission. The conduit may be crafted from rigid steel, lighter steel, aluminum, or PVC.

In addition to providing housing, conduits also play a protective role to the wires and cables inside them. They are common in residential and commercial buildings where the wiring is surface mounted or exposed or installed outdoors.

Thus, when selecting the right conduit size, material, or fittings, it is important to base that decision on the type of wiring housed and the kind of environment the wiring will be installed. Generally, conduits for electrical applications vary in size from 3/8 inches to about 6 inches.

·         Electrical switches

Electrical switches are a vital building component as they help regulate the power supply by turning it on or off. For house wiring especially, toggle switches are commonly used. Furthermore, they come in different sizes and styles according to your décor goals. The most popular styles are three-way, single-pole, four-way, and dimmer switches.

·         Electrical sockets

The primary role of electrical sockets is to ensure a continuous supply of electricity for all your electrical equipment. That means all your equipment or appliances are first linked to the sockets before drawing power from the main power supply line. Further, the “on” and “off” operation of switches complements the functionality of sockets.

·         Circuit breakers

At the core, circuit breakers help to keep your electrical appliances and equipment from damage. They automatically disrupt the flow of electric current to prevent an overload or short that would be disastrous to your entire electrical system. Whether you prefer a single circuit breaker or a double circuit breaker, you will find them all at Pioneer Hardware.

What may cause a circuit overload?

An overloaded circuit will definitely cause your circuit breakers to trip. A circuit overload simply means the electrical load or current flowing through your circuit exceeds the recommended parameters. Thus, the circuit breaks or stops functioning as a protective mechanism. That said, sometimes the overload is due to loose connections on the power outlets.

Working on your building construction with this basic understanding is imperative because excessive circuit overload can ultimately result in fires!

What may cause a short circuit?

Another common reason for your circuit breakers to trip is a short. A short circuit is triggered when two hot wires (black) touch each other or when a hot wire touches a neutral wire (white) and can be more severe than an overload. It can also occur if any of the wires in the circuit experiences a break.

·         Lighting fixtures

Also known as light fittings or luminaires, lighting fixtures are electrical devices that host electric lamps to provide illumination. That means a lighting fixture comes with a fixture body and one or several lamps. The lamps may be attached to sockets to simplify replacement or hard-wired in place, especially in the case of LED fixtures.

Broadly speaking, some of the popular types of lighting fixtures include wall sconces, pendants, chandeliers, track lights, and ceiling lights, among others.

·         Electrical measuring devices

Whether for your residential or commercial premises, an electrical technician will need electrical measurement tools to assess the electrical activity of your building. Simply put, these devices help you detect the presence of current or voltage in your building’s electrical system.

Typically, the instruments rely on DC or AC power sources to measure different electrical parameters such as frequency, voltage, resistance, and power factor. Some of the electrical measuring devices we stock at Pioneer Hardware include ammeters, voltmeters, ohmmeters, multimeters, and wattmeters, among others.

·         Wire connectors

Wire connectors help you terminate your wires in style rather than merely leaving them bare or hanging. What’s more, you can even splice multiple wires together using our wire connectors for a more decent building wiring. From transparent connectors, winged connectors, non-winged connectors, and twist-on connectors, to push-in connectors, we have got all the wiring accessories you are looking for to afford your building that irresistible professional look and feel.

·         Cord covers

If the cords, cables, or wires in your building are running across a surface frequented by heavy foot or vehicle traffic, you might want to think about the safety of those cords and the traffic running over them. A cord cover is a great solution. Quite simply, our cord covers prevent damage to your cables while protecting the surrounding foot traffic from trip hazards.

Moreover, our cord covers are ideal for versatile applications in your home, office, construction site, or warehouse, be it indoors or outdoors. We can also help you find custom-colored covers to match your décor accordingly.
