Per Metre

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

10mm 5 Core SWA Armoured Cable is a type of electrical cable that has a PVC outer sheath and a steel wire armour below. This protects the cores inside the cable which makes it suitable for direct burial into the ground.

We often get asked what length we supply our cable in, this is very simple; we can cut your cable to any length you need. For instance, if you need a 25m coil of 10mm 5 core steel wire armoured cable, simply enter 25 into the quantity box.

This cable is suitable for a variety of uses, including the following;

  • Three Phase Generators
  • Power Networks
  • Supplying Power to Industrial Properties

If you require an estimate size of cable based on your application, check out 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 in metres.

10mm 5 Core Armoured Cable

10mm 5 Core Armoured Cable is a large variant of electrical cable used to supply mains voltage electricity to various devices and powered networks. Weatherproof and dust-proof, this cable is suitable for underground installation as well as being attached to structures or buildings using Cable Cleats. It is commonly found in a range of installations including;
– The Railway and Transport industry- Underneath roads powering buildings – Industrial networks such as power plants and factories- Within cable ducting in the roofs of warehouses
The Cable is constructed from the following materials; Plain Annealed Stranded Copper for the conductors/cores, cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) for the insulation, Steel Wire for the Armour and PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) for the bedding and sheathing.Not only does the Steel Wire Armour provide protection for the insulating layers beneath but it also enables it to have higher pulling loads so it is able to stand the strain of being dispensed from a large cable drum. The armour can also be used as a natural earth or CPC (Current Protective Conductor) for the cable. This means that a seperate earth cable isn't required.
