5 Core SWA BS6724 – 16mm
Steel Wire Armoured (SWA) BS6724 Cable is a robust and hard-wearing power cable with copper conductors, XLPE insulation, steel wire armour and a black Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LS0H) sheath. It is designed for the supply of mains electricity – for power networks, underground systems and in cable ducting – and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
The Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LS0H) SWA Cable is frequently supplied to projects in public areas where fire, smoke emissions and toxic fumes could potentially threaten both lives and equipment. When exposed to fire, the LS0H sheath emits very low levels of smoke and non-toxic levels of halogen gas (typically under 0.5% HCl emission).
With its steel wire armour, SWA Cable is particularly useful in external or underground projects. As well as providing effective mechanical protection, the armour enables it to withstand higher pulling loads.
SWA’s XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) insulation is resistant to a wide range of chemicals and has good thermal stability.
