At Wire & Cable Your Way, we’ve got a large selection of XHHW Copper Building Wire products at the best prices you can find. This copper building wire is intended to be used for general purpose applications in conduit, underground in conduit, or in any other recognized raceways for services, feeders, and branch-circuit wiring.
XHHW wire is generally used for power distribution in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. They are available as either solid or stranded wire, with the stranded XHHW cable providing greater flexibility. For the larger gauge sizes of wire, stranded becomes the only option due to the large cable’s need for flexibility. Wire & Cable Your Way sells the newer and more popular XHHW-2 cable as they offer improved insulation to the older XHHW products.
Our selection of XHHW Copper Building Wire below ranges in size from 14 AWG (American Wiring Gauge) to 750 MCM (Thousand Circular Mils).
