6181B/6182B/6183B/6184B/6185B to BS 7211

Application and Description

6181B/6182B/6183B/6184B/6185B to BS 7211 cables are designed for fixed wiring purposes in domestic and industrial power/lighting applications. They can be installed in trunking or conduit, or may be surface mounted when used for earthing. They are suitable for use in areas (such as public and government buildings) where smoke and toxic fumes may cause a threat to life and equipment. When mechanical protection is required, they can be embedded in concrete
