1.5mm x 3 Core Single Phase SWA Armoured Cable is a mains supply armoured cable with a hard-wearing outer sheath and a galvanised steel wire armour. This armour protects the cable against chemical and mechanical stresses. This also makes the cable perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications as well as for attaching to buildings and structures.

As this is single phase armoured cable, this cable has blue, brown & green/yellow cores rather than the standard black, brown & grey. The cable itself is the same.

Below are some of the applications this cable would be suitable for:

  • Garden Lighting
  • Outdoor Security Lighting
  • Electric Gates
  • Shed or outhouse Lighting

If you need to asses what size cable it is you require, 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.
