Per Metre

This product is sold by the length. Simply select the number of metres you'd like to purchase.

1.5mm 19 Core SWA Armoured Cable is a type of electrical cable with a galvanised steel wire armour below the PVC outer sheath. This allows the cable to be used in hazardous environments as well as being buried underground.

If you need to terminate this cable into a junction box or device, you’ll need a CW25 outdoor gland pack or a BW25 indoor gland pack. Need to attach this cable to a wall or structure? You’ll require CC9 cable cleats to do this.

A few of the different uses for this cable include:

  • Outdoor Security Systems
  • Outdoor Sound & Intercom Systems
  • Current-limited controls
  • Outdoor Intruder alarm systems

If you require an estimate size of cable based on your application, please access our Armoured Cable Calculator.

PLEASE NOTE; this is an approximation, if you don’t know what cable size it is you require, please contact a qualified electrician so they can consult the regulations and confirm. The information you need is what type of circuit it is, either being single-phase or three-phase, the power running through the cable in kW or Amps and the length of the run.
