UL Information

UL-Listed Wires

 

The following styles of Sundial Wire are UL-listed:

All of our UL wire is listed for both the US and Canada. 

Non-UL-Listed Wires

The following styles of Sundial Wire are not UL-listed:

  • twisted pair wires
  • overbraid cord
  • single-conductor wires
  • 12-gauge knob and tube wire

 

Currently there is no UL listing for twisted pair wire except for use of the wire inside an appliance. It is not approved as a power cord, head wire, or any other use exterior to an appliance. And it is not approved for lighting. At one time we heard that UL thinks the wire will become untwisted and cause a tripping hazard. In our experience twisted wire does not become untwisted even if it is not attached to a plug, socket, etc., on each end. Perhaps in the future UL will approve twisted pair for power cords and lighting, but at present it does not. Sundial Wire's twisted pair is constructed according to the UL standard, but we have not applied for approval as our customers need approval for lighting and power cords, not for wiring inside an appliance.
