External Grade Cat 5E & Cat 6 Cables

Designed for fixed installations, the FSC range of duct grade or armoured Cat 5 & Cat 6 cables have heavy jackets of polyethylene to protect against moisture and give the cables extra strength. 

External Cat 5E and external Cat 6 are ideal for running through ducts, up the side of a building or up masts. The armoured version is great for direct burial or vandal-plagued installations.

These cables are supplied on drums.
