Is this the right cable for installing extra wall sockets

Asked by: DAVVI
No. You should be using minimum 2.5sqmm. If this is a spur from the ring main then only 1 socket is permitted directly from the spur. If the sockets are linked in to the ring then more can be added.

can this be used outside if run in trunking?

Asked by: scooby19978
The risk would be if the trunking became waterlogged as this cable is not designed to withstand ingress of water. The installation would have to be watertight along the length. Equally it should not be run without protection as it is designed for indoor use & not UV stable.

What's the outer dimensions of this cable?

The specifications list the width as 1.5mm, but that's the CSA of the conductors. What are the outer dimensions of the cable, so I can buy the right cable clips?
Asked by: de5caN1f
The width is 8.6mm and the height 4.7mm.

is this cable size ok for domestic light circuits

Asked by: lottiebob
Good Morning, This is a very typical cable used for domestic lighting. Please ensure all aspects of the Wiring Regulations are complied with and that all installation work is made by a qualified electrician.
