Nymj Cable

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents,

I worked in Eire for a 13 yrs there they used NYM cable as used on the continent round white triple insulation 3x 1.5   3x 2.5 etc and its available in 100m 250m or 1 kilometer easy to clip and install inside or out. Why don't we use it in GB apart from not Basec or BS approved as far as I know but I expect it exceeds all those specs.

 

Any idea's???????????????

Cables are BASEC or BS approved for a reason lol. Using any cable that isn't here is a dangerous dangerous game.

They don't like change in the UK,

That's why they still use the outdated and antique ring final.

I agree with this.

 

New installations and new circuits where possible i install 4mm radials.

many people don't like change, it involves having to think a bit :slap

 

My guys like using SY flex rather than SWA, if not being buried in ground or exposed outdoors, basically because it's a lot easier to install and terminate, but still has shielding for mechanical protection.

Other than RR I cannot remember the last time I did a ring!

...and if done in 2.5 - AND it goes through more than 100mm of fluffy stuff then you cannot put it on a 32A anyway....not even sure , under those circumstances, if you can have a 4mm on a 20, i 'think' it needs a 16A OPD

Just postulating

did a flat conversion a few years ago. Building regs insisited on sound insualtion in walls and ceilings, so rockwool everywhere, needed 4mm to get 20A never mind 32A

Thanks Gents,

I was not going to use it but it must meet all the euro standards, about time manufacturers made it and applied it to BASEC. The danger is of course we might import it ourselves at a cheaper price than sold here. Surely that could never be a motive for keeping us using twe could it??

It's not a harmonised cable from what I can find, if it is what harmonised cable standards does it meet?

I can't locate any.
