Per Metre

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

120mm 2 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 120mm 2 core steel wire armoured cable, you would simply enter 25 into the quantity box.

  • The Railway and Transport industry
  • Underneath roads powering buildings
  • Industrial networks such as power plants and factories
  • Within cable ducting and the roofs of warehouses

If you need to asses what size cable it is you require, please follow this link for 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.
