The company has expanded a brand of its thermostat wire to include a line of 16-gauge wire. According to the manufacturer, the increased gauge virtually eliminates the possibility of voltage drop issues and makes the wire more resilient to physical damage when compared with thinner gauge sizes. Baro-Stat thermostat wire is constructed using a PVC jacket and conductors insulated with polypropylene. The 16-gauge wire is available in three, five, six, eight, or 10 conductors, in lengths of 500 feet packaged on a spool.
