How Much Do the Bullnose Insulators Cost?

You will spend between 10 and 50 US dollars to purchase a bag of the bullnose insulators.

There is a price variation due to the different types of bullnose insulators such as material variations.

For instance, porcelain bullnose insulators will cost you a lot more than plastic bullnose insulators.

What are the Components of a Bullnose Insulators?

You can note that the bullnose insulators resemble the nose of a bull hence the name bullnose insulators.

Here are the main parts of the bullnose insulators you ought to know more about,

·         Bullnose Insulators Holes

Just like the nose of a bull, bullnose insulators have holes within them for inserting different conductive materials.

The size of the holes will depend on the type of bullnose insulator as well as the type of conducting materials.

·         Main Frame

You can also identify the main frame of the bullnose insulators easily which has the main hole drill passing through.

You can either have the porcelain or plastic material for making the main frame of the bullnose insulators.

What are Reinforced Bullnose Insulators?

Reinforced bullnose insulators are insulators that have extra reinforcement to increase the strength of the bullnose insulators.

Here, you will use fiberglass as the main type of material to make the bullnose insulators stronger.

You will use this type of bullnose insulator for corner or end applications since they provide extra strength.

In fact Elife bullnose insulators are very strong and durable.

Do You Have a Minimum Order Quantity for the Bullnose Insulators?

Yes, we do have a minimum order quantity requirement for the bullnose insulators.

At Elife, our minimum order quantity requirements will vary according to the type of bullnose insulators.

Bullnose insulators that require special type of packaging have a MOQ between 3000 and 5000.

The MOQ may increase or decrease depending on the type of bullnose indicators you order.

Which Accessories Do You Install Alongside the Bullnose Insulators?

Well, during the installation process, there are numerous accessories that you will install alongside bullnose insulators.

Here are some of the main accessories that you will install alongside the bullnose insulators.

How Do You Test the Quality of the Bullnose Insulators?

You need to be certain about the quality of the bullnose insulators by conducting proper tests on them.

At Elife, we conduct tests on the bullnose insulators in accordance to our customers’ quality standards,

Here are the main tests that you will conduct on the bullnose insulators.

·         Anti-aging Test

You will conduct the test on the bullnose insulator to test the level of durability as well as weather resistance.
