BS 6724 Cables

BS 6724 Armoured Power Cables, 600/1000V

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

Application

BS 6724 cables are used for power and control circuits,BS 6724 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. For installation where fire, smoke emission and toxic fumes

create a potential threat to life and equipment.
