Customised Cable Solutions

Sometimes, standard cables will not meet all of the requirements of a particular application and a customised cable solution is required. Whether a fully bespoke cable is specified or a composite cable will fulfil requirements, our technical experts will work with our customers' engineers to confirm the brief, design a solution, and manufacture the ideal cable.

Regulatory Compliance

UK and European Union laws require compliance to a number of legislative directives concerned principally with providing safe working conditions and protecting our environment. The cable industry is subject to the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) which identifies cables to harmonised fire classifications; to CE marking laws which denotes proven health, safety and environmental compliance, to the REACH directive regulating the volume of certain chemical substances imported into the EU; the directive on WEEE concerned with the end-of-product-lifecycle handling of materials; and to the RoHS directive which excludes certain chemicals entirely from our supply chain. 

We work tirelessly to ensure our products, services and practices remain compliant with these, and other, regulations. We are the only organisation whose RoHS testing is UKAS-accredited to ISO 17025 and we hold the BSI RoHS Trusted Kitemark, internationally recognised and respected as the premier mark of regulatory compliance.
