What is the minimum bend radius of this cable?
Presumably it is too stiff to take out the back wall of my house and clip it to the wall.
The minimum bend radius is based on 6 x the outside diameter. Therefore in the case of this cable 80 mm.. Obviously It is not designed to be bent over a sharp edge. Is it possible to fit some sort of support/former at the edge to manage the bend?

Would this be the correct armoured cable
to run from house consumer board to the garage which is 17mt distance run of cable. The supply is to run lights & 3 double sockets for Tumble dryer Freezer and power tools
Please note we are not in a position to add up the total kW load of all your appliances & you do not state installation method (buried in the ground or otherwise). What is the rating of your fuse protection?
If you are using a 32Amp fuse/breaker at the consumer unit then we would recommend a 4sqmm cable. Provided the fuse protection does not exceed 27 Amps then 2.5sqmm would be sufficient.
