Product Overview: This high-quality earth cable is suitable for a wide range of domestic applications, including lighting circuits and building wiring. It provides essential protection against electrocution by offering a safe path for fault currents to flow to earth, subsequently tripping the connected circuit breaker and switching off the circuit to prevent harm.

Key Features:

  • High Protection: Ensures safety by providing a reliable path for fault currents, helping to prevent electrocution and trip circuit breakers in case of a fault.
  • Variety of Sizes: Available in various sizes to suit any application or requirement. Typically, the earth cable should be half the cross-sectional diameter of the accompanying cable (e.g., for a 2 core 50mm² armoured cable, a 25mm² earth cable is recommended).
