Armoured cables

Braid armour

Galvanized steel wire braid: suitable for small tensile and pressure load. It is the most flexible type of armour and allows the smallest bending radii. It is mainly used for small diameter cables.

Stainless steel wire braid: as an alternative to galvanized steel wire braid. It is used in case a strong resistance to corrosion and to high temperature is required.

Nickel wire braid: as an alternative to stainless steel wire braid. It is used when a low strength is acceptable but a high flexibility is required.

Tape armour

Galvanized steel tapes: excellent protection against pressure and impact loads, not suitable for high tensile loads, excellent protection against rodents. It is the best protection against inductive interferences of all types of armour listed.

Flat wire armour

Galvanized flat steel wires + steel tape: suitable for high tensile load but it is the least flexible of all types of armour listed.

Wire armour

Galvanized steel wires: very good protection against pressure and impact loads, suitable for high tensile loads, good protection against rodents. It is the most used type of armour for direct buried cables.
