Traffic Signalling Cable

As a leading supplier of infrastructure cables, Eland Cables provide a range of road traffic signalling cables manufactured in accordance with British, European and international standards. This range of cables is generally used in permanent traffic light systems and urban traffic management systems. Traffic signalling cables provide the interconnection between traffic signal equipment and other similar applications.

For applications requiring robustness, our standard traffic signal cables have steel wire armour providing mechanical protection. This makes them suitable for direct burial.
