BD Loops Why use a BD Loops Preformed Saw Saw--Cut? “The difficultly and time it takes to saw cut and run loop wire in any finish grade material is a thing of the past as far as we are concerned. It makes no sense to do things the old way when there is a product our there like BD Loops that will save you 30—45 minutes on each loop install.” -Douglas Palenchar, CEO National Automated Solutions

BD Loops preformed saw-cuts are designed to save the installer 20-40 minutes of installation time per loop. Normally 3-4 loops are installed at a time resulting in saved time adding up to around 1.5-2.5 hours. The time saved makes the loops practically free. A lot of thought went into the design of our BD Loops which will not only save you time, but materials as well. The loop and lead-in fits into a smaller, less expensive 3/16� blade groove. Not only that, but on average BD Loops requires up to 40% less sealant to seal a saw-cut groove. BD Loops has been selling nothing but preformed loops for over 9 years, and we pride ourselves on the quality of our product. We have been in business for 9 years and only have had 1 loop failure, we have an unmatched reputation for excellence in the gate and door industry. We believe you only have one chance to install a loop right, and with BD Loops you will have one less thing to worry about. 3 www.BDLoops.com

BD Loops Saves You Time “We enjoy your design because it saves us valuable time. We average about 30 mins of saved time per loop. Doing 3 to 4 loops on a job saves us about 1.5 to 2 hours. At the cost of having two men, a truck and a saw -cut machine in the field, the time saved makes using your loops close to free.� -Tom Genda Fence Medic 4 www.BDLoops.com

We find that installers save time with BD Loops saw-cut because of the following features: •

No need to wrap wires in the field. (On larger sized loops this could save up to 15 minutes) No need to twist our jacketed lead-in wires. (5-10 minutes) No need to make a 2nd saw-cut for wider lead-in wires. (5-15 minutes, depending on length of lead in.) No need to install backer rod, it’s built into our jacketed saw-cut wire. (Saves time and materials.)

BD Loops Saves You Materials “First of all, the loop products are first rate and the quality far exceeds the

competitive products we had tried previously. The loops are easier to install, the directions straight forward, and the support material very helpful. Most importantly, to date we have never had a failure of a BD Loop!� - David T. Schlesinger, Service Manager Controlled Access Consultants

BD Loops use up to 40% less sealant on average because the built in backer rod and jacket material around the wire seals the bottom half of the saw-cut groove. Entire loop and lead-in fits into a 3/16” saw-cut groove, you only have to drop the blade twice for the yoke. (approx 5”). Less wear on your blades, since you don’t have to double saw-cut the lead-in. Get more use out of your saw blades and prevent the teeth chipping that occurs when you double saw-cut. 3/16” Blade costs less than a 1/4” blade. Save gas with your saw-cut machines. A 3/16” blade is more energy efficient than a 1/4” blade because of less drag.

BD Loops Reliability “We have been installing your saw-cut preformed loops for a few months now and we are finding ever increasing savings in the installation of sawcut loops. We have yet to return to any of these installations for warranty purposes. In our climate, the road surfaces tend to prematurely crack causing water to infiltrate within the loop thereby freezing during the winter months and causing the loop to detect of fail thereby holding the gate open. We have successfully installed the saw-cut loops in these conditions with great success.� -Alain Brule, General Manager Rocky Mountain Access Controls, Inc. 8 www.BDLoops.com

BD Loops are tested 3 ways before leaving the factory. Tested with an inductance meter Hooked-up to a live detector Submerged in water and measured with a Meg-ohm meter. BD Loops has been in business for over 9 years and have had only 1 loop failure. BD Loops saw-cuts are made with a thick polyethylene outer jacket and independently fully insulated wire. Far better protection than independently installed loop wire with XLPE insulation.

BD Loops are designed to reduce repeat service calls. For example each BD Loop is pre-phase at the factory to ensure proper phasing of the loops.

BD Loops Superior Wire “Over the last three years we have been using your preformed loops without a single failure. Our experience with other loop designs has ended up costing us lost profits in repeat service calls and in some cases we had to saw cut new replacement loops at our expense and with great dissatisfaction from the customer from the saw cut pattern being added to their new driveway.� -Richard Sandoval Access Department Manager, Windsor Industries

No need to twist our lead-in wire since it is jacketed. Because the lead-in does not have to be twisted it fits into a 3/16” saw-cut groove, no need to double cut home run lead-ins. Polyethylene outer jacket is as tough as nails. Prevents nicks during installation. Same base material as XLPE. Our saw-cut wire has a built-in backer rod to ensure the saw-cut stays on the bottom of the saw-cut groove. Which saves you time and materials during installation. We used 16 awg wire, which has twice as much copper as 18 awg wire, which allows the loop to perform better, and increases its tinsel strength.

To feel our wire’s backer rod please check our display board.

BD Loops Superior Design “We have been installing your detection loops for two years now and have not had any problems with them. This is the first product in the this industry that we have had zero failure with. The reliability has been remarkable. In addition, the overall design saves us installation time, which has saved us money.� -Aaron Dixon, Owner Amazing Gates of America, LLC

We spent 3 years developing our BD Loop saw-cut, with the intention of creating the best saw-cut loop for door or gate applications on the market. We solder our connections to ensure the best electrical connection possible. It is the only saw-cut loop that has backer rod built into the wire. Each loop has been hand pulled to be the exact length specified, which ensures the loops will fit into your measured saw-cut groove. The wires are independent from the outer jacket which allows the best protection in installations where the ground may move such as in concrete spillways, or other “bad” surface materials. BD Loops perform superbly in all climates and weather conditions, due to our multiple layers of protection and our absolutely water tight splices. 13 www.BDLoops.com

Take all the guess work out of installing a preformed saw -cut with an installation kit that really works, by using the saw-cut loop as a template it insures a perfect cut every time regardless of size or shape. The kit is designed to be used by one installer. One installer can set up the template and chalk lines for all of the loops to be installed while the other starts sawcutting. Dog ear template made for up to 26” saw blades, which prevents the corner from being cut out completely, a rather unsightly occurrence.

BD Loops Thank You for Your Time “It has been close to five years that I have been selling your loops. I want to say that in all that time we have yet to have a failure. That is a remarkable track record, one that saves us a lot of time. It is so nice when a customer calls saying they are having a loop problem, I am able to tell them it’s not the loop, but to look for something else causing the problem. It always turns out to be the something else. Your product is just that reliable.” -Richard Martinez US GATE SUPPLY II 18 www.BDLoops.com

BD Loops Saw Saw--Cut Loop “The ease of installation and reliability of your product is a great asset to the industry.” -Walter Aragon & Gloria Hearn R&S Automation

22 www.BDLoops.com


23

Used for saw-cut installations where a 3/16” groove is cut into the concrete or asphalt and the wire is stuffed and sealed (using loop sealant) into the surface. Custom polyethylene outer jacket protects a micro-dusted nylon coated inner jacketed 16AWG stranded wire.

The saw-cut loop has a built in backer-rod securely fitting a 3/16” saw-cut groove eliminating the need to apply backer-rod to hold the loop to the bottom of the saw-cut groove and requires 30-40% less loop sealant to seal the groove. •

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

BD Loops Direct Burial Loop “I met BD Loops at a Trade show several years ago and they showed me the advantages in terms of efficiency and durability of the BD direct burial loop. We have use them since then and have never had a problem.� -Jack Vermeulen Marin Fence Company

24 www.BDLoops.com


25

Used for installations under concrete, asphalt, pavers, or gravel roads. The most common installation is the loop tied directly to the rebar before concrete is poured. •

Wire is UL 493 certified designed for a direct burial application. Unlike loops wrapped through PVC, The BD Loop does not have an air pocket resulting in fewer repeat service calls due to phantom detections caused by ground vibration.

Built with a high quality solid 14 AWG wire which out performs other preformed loops with twice as much copper per foot than 16 AWG allowing higher detections. Solid 14 AWG wire also results in the loop being very ridged giving the installer the opportunity to easily set-up and layout the loop and prevents the loop from falling in-between the rebar pattern. Twisted jacketed lead-in prevents “coil back” from normal twisted lead-in, preventing wasted time untangling lead-in wires.

The loop wire has arrows indicating the direction of current allowing easy understanding of phasing. Each loop comes with an installation kit including easy to understand instructions, cable ties for installation on top of rebar, ground stakes for under gravel roads, and stickers for easy identification after the loops have been installed.

33

Many loop installers use screwdrivers, paint mixers, sticks, or other tools to stuff saw-cut loops into saw-cut grooves. These tools are not only inefficient, they can knick the loop wire and cause the loop to short to ground. Save your back and knees with the Pizza Wheel and Wedge Tool! The BD Loops Pizza Wheel and Wedge Tool allows installers to quickly and easily roll loop wire into the bottom of the saw-cut groove while standing. It is made of smooth and durable PVC that will not knick the loop wire. The wedge tool allows installers to easily push wire down into 135 dog eared corner cuts. Roller is 1/8" thick, works best with BD Loops Preformed Saw-Cuts.
