|Contacta RL-Tape is flat copper tape designed to be placed under flooring when installing large area loops. When it can be used it is a much easier and more practical solution than cable.
The Contacta RL-Tape comes as a 100m reel and its insulation film can be soldered through. It is available in three different widths depending on your installation requirements - 10mm, 12.5mm and 25mm. If you're not sure which width you require then please get in touch with our sales team who'll be happy to help - [email protected]
It's also good practice to cover your copper tape with Warning Tape to highlight to other contractors that there is an installed loop present and that they should avoid damaging it.
