“Sariling tahanan. ‘Yan ang pangarap ng bawat isa sa atin.”
Everyone has different dreams, whether grand or small – a successful career, a fabulous lifestyle, travel goals, financial stability. But as Filipinos, we always crave for a peaceful and cozy home, where we can enjoy peace and safety with our loved ones.
The Bayson family is a real-life example of the realization of this dream.
Here is their story…
Mrs. Lorie Bayson is a humble wife and mother - hard working, and loving. She married Mr. Teodoro Bayson in 1972 and were blessed with six children. Mrs. Bayson sells vegetables and fruits in a market in Alabang. With her earnings, the Baysons were able to save enough money finally build their dream house and provide good education for their children. Despite their tight budget, they made sure their humble home is a safe place to enjoy with their family.
This is why the Baysons chose a top-quality, safe and long-lasting wire for their home – Phelps Dodge TW wires.
As the years passed, their children eventually raised their own families. Over those years,the couple’s home have gone through several repairs and renovations except for the electric wires they have used since.
Finally, after more than 40 years, the Baysons decided to replace the electrical wiring of their home. Again, they chose Phelps Dodge wires. As Mrs. Bayson said: “Kahit maliit ang aming pera, iniisip ko na makabili ng mga materyales na matibay at orihinal, nang hanggang sa ngayon ay aming magamit.”
40 Years in Service – Guaranteed to Last for 40 Years More
We at Phelps Dodge were also curious as to the condition of the PD wires installed and used continuously for over 40 years.
The old TW wires retrieved from the Bayson’s home were tested in our plant facility in Tarlac.
Several tests were conducted on the wires by a team of engineers headed by Engr. Emmanuel Caguitla. The diameter test revealed that the nominal diameter of the old wires is 2.0 which is more than the standard diameter for wires. The electrical resistance test revealed a total value of 5.137 which is lower than the maximum standard. The tensile strength of the insulation test revealed an actual value of 1.59 which is higher than the minimum standard. Lastly, the flame test revealed that after exposure to fire in the laboratory, the wires were still flame retardant. The TW wires still passed all the tests with flying colors, even after over 40 years of use.
With these results and the physical condition of the wires, Engr. Caguitla said that the wires are guaranteed to even last for another 40 years.
