Description

16mm 3 Core Armoured Cable
16mm 3 Core Armoured Cable is a variant of electrical cable that has a cross-sectional diameter of 16mm as well as a Live and Neutral core within the cable itself.

As well as providing mechnical protection, it also ensures that the cable can withstand highly corrosive environments such as being installed underground as well as being attached to outdoor walls and structures using Cable Cleats. 16mm 3 Core Armoured Cable is found in a wide range of industries across the globe.
