BS 5467 Cables

BS 5467 Armoured Power Cables, 600/1000V

Multi-core 600/1000 V cables with stranded copper conductors

Application

BS 5467 cables are used for power and control circuits,BS 5467 cables can offer excellent protection through the

use of a heavy galvanized steel wire armour. The GSWA makes them suitable for use inside and outside

buildings or for direct burial in the ground.
