Preformed Direct Burial Loops
Used for installations under concrete, asphalt, pavers, or in gravel roads. The most common installation is the loop tied directly to the rebar before concrete is poured. Wire is designed for a direct burial application.
Unlike loops wrapped through PVC, The BD Loops Direct Burial Loop does not have an air pocket resulting in fewer repeat service calls due to phantom detections caused by ground vibration.
Our BD Loops Direct Burial loops are build with Solid 16AWG to create a tough rigid product that won’t fall below the rebar pattern. Installing a BD Loops Direct Burial loop over rebar is a snap! Simply offset the loop from the rebar pattern and tie it down with the supplied cable ties.
