The Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) SWA Cable is frequently supplied to projects in public areas where fire, smoke emissions and toxic fumes could potentially threaten both lives and equipment. When exposed to fire, the LSZH sheath emits very low levels of smoke and non-toxic levels of halogen gas (typically under 0.5% HCl emission).
With its steel wire armour, SWA Cable is particularly useful in external or underground projects. As well as providing effective mechanical protection, the armour enables it to withstand higher pulling loads.

SWA’s XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene) insulation is resistant to a wide range of chemicals and has good thermal stability.

The versatile SWA BS6724 Cable is commonly used across a whole range of industries including building and construction, and rail and transport. The armoured mains cable is also supplied for transmission, distribution and power networks as well as automation and process control systems.
