The Confederation of Aerial Industries, abbreviated as CAI, is a UK trade body representing best practice for media and data delivery in residential properties and commercial buildings. Focused on signal reception and data networks, CAI’s membership is comprised of individual satellite dish and aerial installers through to national businesses, as well as the companies that manufacture and supply the equipment used in installation. The association is two-fold, benchmarking the technical capabilities of cables and aerials, and operating a Government endorsed scheme of recognised tradesmen.
CAI is the benchmark standard for aerial and satellite broadcast cable ensuring accurate transmission of TV signal.


CAI-approval means that a cable has been certified as delivering the Confederation’s benchmark performance standards and that it meets the technical specifications laid down by the organisation. In order to prove adherence and compliance with these standards, testing is permitted at recognised independent laboratories, such as Eland Cables’ own UKAS-accredited specialist cable testing facilities.  


Eland Cables supplies a single strand solid copper conductor CT100 Coaxial cable that holds CAI-approval. The approval certification can be viewed here. This PVC sheathed cable has both an Aluminium/Polyester Foil shield and is screened with tinned copper wire braid (TCWB). It has been designated as suitable for professional CCTV systems as well as digital, satellite and cable television installations.
