Armoured up for safety
3 Sep 2013
By Malloyd1
, Barnstaple
"A very strong cable for all outdoor applications. The outer plastic shield is tough and the spiral armour allows excellent flexability. The inner sheath is thick enough to allow for clamping in termination units and the cores have a very tough outer sheath. Cutting the cable requires care and triming back needs the correct tools as all the sheths are made of tough material. Once installed you can be confident that the cable will last for many, many years."

"Came wound on a wooden reel, so easy to spool off without getting all twisted.
Not sure why other people are attempting to fit 13a plugs to this cable (previous reviewers), as this, like all other SWA cables must have the protective armouring connected to earth. Which is what cable glands are for!
Overall a great product which will last for years."

Just Great Value & Quality
30 May 2012
By Lazyoldgit

"I just used 25m of this to make what is effectively a permanent extension lead to my decking. The great thing about it is that you can fit a plug on it, it works with waterproof sockets and goes through the seals in waterproof boxes.
Pricewise - I don't know how they do it but it is way cheaper than anywhere else I checked.
Only down side was it has been rolled up like spaghetti and it is very stiff - I left it out in the sun to warm up and then spread it across the garden to get the kinks out.
Use the 99897 cleats to hang it - perfect fit and very easy to use.
Just remember the colour codes are Grey = Neutral, Brown = Live and Black = Earth. To be strictly legal you need to sheath the stripped ends of both the earth and neutral wires with green/yellow and blue respectively."
