Our in-house electrician Eddy recommends using this cable for outdoor garden lighting installations. As the cable is armoured, it is also protected from damage whilst being buried for added peace of mind.
Remember to use CC11 Cable Cleats to attach the cable to any building or structure and outdoor CW32 glands to terminate the stripped ends into the required equipment. This also provides a clean and tidy installation as well as protecting the cable from any knocks or scrapes. Remember that indoor BW32 brass cable glands are also available for this cable size.
