6mm 3 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 6mm 3 core steel wire armoured cable, you would simply enter 25 into the quantity box.
This cable is suitable for a variety of uses, including the following;
- EV Car Chargers
- Providing Power to Sheds & Outhouses
- Permanently Installed Welding Equipment
If you require an estimate size of cable based on your application, 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. The information you need is what type of circuit it is, either being single-phase or three-phase, the power running through the cable in kW or Amps and the length of the run in metres.
