As this cable is armoured, it is designed for underground installation as well as being attached to structures or buildings using Cable Cleats.
Both BW20S indoor and CW20S outdoor glands are available to allow you to terminate the cable. If you’re looking to attach the cable to a wall or structure, you’ll require CC6 cable cleats.
