For commercial installations and areas where the weather can be harsh, we suggest customers consider our spools with SPT-2 rated insulation. Slightly thicker insulation makes this cord heartier in installation than it's commercial-grade SPT-1 counterpart. Be sure to order plugs that are compatible with SPT-2. With 12-inch spacing, this spool is ideal for LED bulbs. This spacing accents rooflines and walkways especially nicely. Installing colorful lights such as red, blue or purple, the color will be concentrated and create a WOW factor for your business or Lawn. This Christmas light spool is constructed using commercial-grade 18 AWG wire with SPT-2 insulation. Rated at 10 amps and wired in parallel, this spool can be cut to fit your project. You'll need 500 bulbs to fill every socket in this cord. This cord works great with either LED or incandescent bulbs. They can even be mixed on the same string. If using glass, consider adding an extra box or two to your order to cover breakage during and after installation. Don't forget that these cords are not only for Christmas. Fill them with round glass or LED bulbs all year long for parties and special events.

What you need to know

Common sense electrical precautions

Do not install more than 250 continuous feet of this Christmas light spool regardless of bulb type. Even if you are using LED bulbs, do not exceed 250 feet in a single string/run of cord. That is the line-limit specification of 18 AWG wire. If you are using incandescent bulbs, your maximum run is determined by the wattage of your bulbs.

Do not exceed 80% of the current rating for your breaker or a max of 10 amps for any run of lights or combination of lights. Consult with a master electrician for verification of all electrical figures.
