For added mechanical protection, many of our cables are available with an additional steel wire armour (SWA). Armouring is best suited for fixed installations and particularly direct burial into the ground.

0.9mm solid galvanised steel wires laid helically around the cable is cased in a heavy waterproof jacket provide one of the toughest cables around.

The armour wires are sheathed with either an exterior grade PVC or PE jacket. LSHF sheaths for installations in sensitive areas are also available.
