Our New Flat Xtra™ Cables – Pure Magic
Introducing our new Flat Xtra™ cable range!
Available in 4mm2 and 6mm2 , the new range allows you to cover up to 70% longer runs and save up to 3% in cable costs* even before factoring in the labour cost-savings you will get from laying down one cable instead of two – all thanks to having a cable with the same size earth.
Benefits of laying down only one cable are savings in:
- Time: There is no longer a need to lay down a second earth wire to comply with the fault loop impedance requirements. Furthermore, the electrician will only need to terminate one size of cable – meaning termination is quicker with the Flat Xtra™.
- Money: Only one cable is needed
- Wastage: When using the Flat Xtra™, all of the cable will be used. No more earth wire wastage!
- Tooling: The electrician will only need tools to terminate one cable size
Maximum run length by conductor size:
For circuit breakers the mean tripping currents are as follows:
|Type B||4 times rated current|
|Type C||7.5 times rated current|
|Type D||12.5 times rated current|
Fuses based on AS/NZS 60269.1 also known as BS 88 type fuses

Nominal phase voltage 230V
For nominal phase voltage of not 230V, the maximum length may be determined by multiplying by a factor of U0/230
