What is Steel Wire Armoured Cable?

Steel wire armoured cable (SWA) is a highly reinforced power cable. It will supply a continuous flow of electricity to the intended target, due the galvanized steel overlapping the center cable. Each cable is built up of numerous copper cores, followed by XLPE insulation of the cores. The insulated cores are then protected by a layer of PVC bedding, which is secured by steel wire. Finally a thick outer layer of PVC covers the entirety of the cable.

When is armoured cable required?

The best use of this cable would be if the intended application is likely to be on a rough surface, or is situated in areas where there is high traffic and risk of debris striking the power cable. This would be the most beneficial. As an example, some of the applications for using SWA cable include:

• Underground cabling
• Train tracks
• Outdoor building sites
• Indoor and outdoor power stations
• High risk workshops
