Copper Circular stranded (Non-compacted or Compacted) Class 2 to IEC 60228 or BS EN 60228 (previously BS 6360)

Fire Resistant Tape (Mica Glass)

Secondary Insulation:

Extruded XLPE


For multicore cables, two, three, four or five insulated conductors are laid-up together with non-hygroscopic fillers compatible with the insulation material and the assembly is bedded with an extruded layer of PVC.

Core Identification:

As per UAE Local regulations the following colour code is used. However, special colour code as per BS 7846 can be provided based on special request.

Two Cores          : Red, Black

Three Cores        : Red, Yellow, Blue

Four Cores          : Red, Yellow, Blue, Black


LSZH Extruded bedding serves as a bedding for the armour and as protection for the laid-up cores.


Galvanized Steel Wires applied helically over bedding

Outer Sheath

Extruded LSZH, Black.

In addition, finished cables are marked on the outer sheath to aid cable identification at site.
