  • Is it the loop?
    The detector?
    The harness wiring?

    Troubleshooting faulty loop systems has never been easier! Simply plug the E-Z Detector Checker in replace of the currently installed loop and check all of the easily replaceable components first!  You can’t fix a  loop in the ground, so eliminate all the other components of the system before you install a new loop.

    BD Loops E-Z Detector Checker is a handy tool that can help you quickly determine where in the loop circuit an issue is occuring.

    Stop by our booth for a coupon that will allow you to purchase 1 EZ-Detector Checker from any BD Loops Distributor at a discounted rate of $90.00. (Normally $149.00)  

  • The BD-Megger is on special during the show, stop by our booth to pick up a coupon that will allow you to purchase a BD-Megger from any BD-Loops Distributor for the low price of $75.00.

 Products

  • Preformed 3/16" Saw-Cut Loops
    Save up to 45 minutes in installation time per loop vs. wrapping saw-cut loops by hand. These loops have a custom durable polyethylene outer jacket that protects the insulated loop wires....
     

  • Used for saw-cut installations where a 3/16” or larger groove is cut into the concrete or asphalt and the wire is stuffed and sealed (using loop sealant) into the surface. 

    Our saw-cut loops have a custom durable polyethylene outer jacket that protects nylon coated polyethylene insulated 16AWG stranded wire. BD Loops Saw-Cut Loops have a built in wing shaped backer-rod that causes the loop to fit snugly in a 3/16” saw-cut groove. Our unique wire design prevents the installer from having to install backer-rod and creates a seal at the bottom of the groove, allowing the installer to apply sealant to a flat surface and resulting in at least a 30% savings in loop sealant to seal the groove vs. hand wrapped wires in a ¼” wide groove.

    The entire loop including the lead-in fits within a 3/16” saw-cut groove preventing wasted time spent double saw-cutting or doubling blades to cut the home run lead-in.

    Do I have to cut a perfect sized pattern to use your loop?

    Not at all! As long as you don’t make the saw pattern larger than the loop size (you can never make a preformed loop any larger) our loop will fit every time. We designed our Saw-Cut loops to be able to take up excess loop in the lead-in run, which makes the loop smaller. 

    This is accomplished by laying the loop parallel in the lead-in run up to 2ft (which shortens the overall perimeter of the loop by up to 4ft).

  • Preformed Direct Burial Loops
    For use in concrete, asphalt, pavers, or in gravel roads. 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 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.

    The loop wire has arrows indicating the direction of current and lead-in is red/black allowing easy understanding of phasing.

    Twisted jacketed lead-in prevents “coil back” from normal twisted lead-in, preventing wasted time untangling lead-in wires.

    Each direct burial loop comes with an installation kit including easy to follow instructions, cable ties for installation on top of rebar, ground stakes for laying out the loop in gravel and dirt roads (remove ground stakes before burying loop), and stickers for easy identification after the loops have been installed.

  • BD-LG (LOOP GOOP)
    BD-LG (Loop Goop) with 3/16” sealant tip – Polyurethane Detector Loop Sealant. Available in Gray or Black. 30 fl. oz. per tube. BD-LG does not shrink or crack, and is a moisture cure sealant which means that left over Loop Goop can be saved!...

    BD-LG2 is primarily used as a fast cure, protective seal for inductance loops. It may be used as a sealant for saw cuts in concrete and asphalt surfaces.

    BD-LG2 cures in cold and freezing applications. Finally a solution for sealing loops in cold weather!

    Curing
    BD-LG2 gels in 2 hours in freezing temperatures. In warmer temperatures it is a quick cure material. See the chart below.

    Temperature Gel Time
    23°F (-5°C) 120 min
    41°F (5°C) 45 min
    59°F (15°C) 15 min
    Greater than 59°F (15°C) Less than 15 min

    Superior Features
    BD-LG2 has no reaction with the asphalt and concrete and therefore will not deteriorate them. It exhibits no "bubbling" or "mushrooming". BD-LG2 will not expand or flow above the joint.

    Handling Instructions.
    BD-LG2 is a 100% solids system, that contains no solvents and is zero V.O.C.

    Coverage Per Tube/Case
    See chart below.

    It is always better to purchase 1 extra cartridge of
    BD-LG2 than to run out of Loop Goop on a jobsite and have to run back to your distributor.

    Using a 3/16" wide blade over 1/4" blades will save you 25% in loop sealant.

  • BD-MEGGER
    Easy to read analog megohmmeter with simple instructions and a log book for testing loops. The BD-Megger is on special during the show, stop by our booth for a coupon!...
     

  • Megohmmeters are the only meter than can test for the most common loop issue - a nick in the insulation causing the loop to short to ground. This is why they are referred to as "Insulation Testers".

    This analog megohmmeter gives installers more information than the more common light up megohmmeters. The pin will point to the megohm reading - giving you a number you can track and monitor to determine if the loop is shorting to ground.

    The BD Loop Megger includes:

    • Batteries
    • Quick Start Instructions for Testing Loops
    • Indepth Instructions for Testing Loops
    • Testing Record Booklet - Track loop performance and protect your installation.
    • Carrying Case

    To obtain a megohm reading simply connect one lead of the megohmmeter to the loop and connect the other lead of the megohmmeter to ground.
