Cable design

More than simply a supplier, we're focused on working with you to achieve your project goals. 

Electrical engineering design houses call on us for guidance on cable specifications and regulations, electrical engineering contractors make use of our services for a proactive, flexible approach to project delivery, and end users can rely on us as a responsible partner for reliable supply.


Specification and Approvals Support

There's rarely just a single option that fits an installation. Specification is a balance of performance demands, environmental challenges, and installation design. Then add on top the regulatory and compliance requirements.

Do you need to cross-reference and compare national standards?

Do you know the minimum CPR classifications for your project?

Where's the cable going to sit - Have you thought about additional water blocking measures or enhanced UV resistance?

Does the cable need to hold specific third-party approvals?

We take the time to understand the application, the installation environment, and the wider project requirements - and then discuss suitable solutions.


Cable Design Consultancy

If specification identifies requirements that aren't currently available in an existing single cable, there is the option to create a customised design. Whether it's fully bespoke design, a composite cable, have additional component layers, or simple be resheathed, a cable that matches and meets the installation demands aids system efficiency and supports operational longevity.


Sample Production and Cable Testing

There are instances where confirming a cable's suitability may mean sample lengths will need to be produced, particularly if it's a custom designed solution. You want to see it and know it will meet the demands of your installation.

Sample testing means time in The Cable Lab. It confirms how the cable performs here and now, but also throughout its lifespan with accelerated ageing for UV weathering, ozone resistance, and cold bend testing. For an additional layer of assurance, the full production run can be tested to an internationally recognised third-party accreditation under the BSI Cable Testing Verification Kitemark programme.


Cable Expertise and Industry Best Practice

It might be a nuance that our cable experts can clarify; it might be guidance on best-practice from our industry experts. From ad-hoc technical support to helping give a broader understanding with certified cable training, it's a valuable resource to be able to tap into when needed.
