Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value for money Does the job as required to spec at a good price. Pay a bit more if you want more robust outer insulation.

Would this wire be compatible to wire an electric cooker ?

Asked by: Kai1
I think this size is too small. More usual would be 6mm² or even 10mm². You need to look at the instruction book for how much current it will pull to decide on what size cable. The book may even give the size required. This type of cable (twin flat 6242y) is commonly used however to connect from the wall outlet to the back of the cooker. If in doubt refer to a qualified electrician.

Hi m, would tgis cable be any good for a external water feature? many thanks.

Asked by: papab
Twin Flat cable is not designed for external use and in particular burial. So it is not likely to be suitable. An armoured cable is more likely to be suitable.

Would this be OK to wire up a shed for sockets and lighting

Asked by: Barnyboy1234
It is more usual to use 2.5mm² for power circuits in domestic wiring but this is a cable used for this type of application. However you do not indicate what cables you have used to get to the shed. Twin and Earth is not suitable for burial. if in doubt consult an electrician.
