This BASEC approved multi-purpose fixed wiring cable with added fire protection capabilities, is manufactured in accordance with BS8436. It provides reduced electromagnetic interference making it ideal when electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is a consideration.

Constructed with a Tubed Aluminium Screen, it can be installed in walls, partitions and building voids where there may be risk of damage or penetration from nails or other fixings. This meets the requirements of the 17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2008 (incorporating Amendment 3) 2015 for concealed cables at a depth of less than 50mm, Regulation 522.6.201 to 522.6.204.
