About Compression Lugs
Burndy® is a leading manufacturer of compression lugs that are designed specifically for each type of cable. For instance, flexible cables use different lugs than non-flexible cables because the copper strands settle differently when the insulation is stripped off. There are also a variety of hand tools and battery-operated crimping tools that work well with Burndy® products.
As you can see above, there are four basic types of compression lugs to choose from. You can buy one hole lugs, two-hole lugs, short barrel lugs and long barrel lugs. Once you choose the type of lug you need you’ll need to decide the hole size and AWG size based on the size of your electrical cable.
