35mm 4 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 35mm 4 core steel wire armoured cable, you would simply enter 25 into the quantity box.

  • Garage supply cable (over long distances)
  • Log Cabin supply cable
  • 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.

35mm 4 Core Armoured Cable

35mm 4 Core Armoured Cable is a variant of electrical cable that is commonly found within powered networks as well as supplying mains voltage to multiple powered devices etc. It is used in a wide variety of electrical applications but at this size, it is commonly found within industrial compounds such as power stations and building sites. This cable is identified by the following method of construction;
– Plain Annealed Stranded Copper for the cores/conductors- XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) for the insulation- PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) for the sheathing and bedding- Steel Wire for the armouring that protects the insulating layers beneath.
As well as a form of mechanical protection, therefore suitable for outdoor use and underground installations, the steel wire armour also acts a CPC (Circuit Protective Conductor), meaning it acts as a natural earth for the cable therefore an earth core or seperate length of earth cable is not required. 
Other installations this cable can be found in include;
– The transport industry= Railway lines, underground railways, etc.
– Power stations and industrial warehouses= when concerning warehouses, it can be found within cable ducting as opposed to it being installed underground
– Underneath roads carrying mains electricity to buildings, housing etc.
