Is this suitable for lighting?

Asked by: Downsyboy
Flat cable like this is used commonly for domestic lighting circuits. It needs to be appropriately fused and all wiring regulations of course apply. I would say 1.5mm² is more commonly used in most lighting circuits. Please refer to a qualified electrician.

Use for Plug sockets

Can i use this for adding more plug sockets ?
Asked by: Decorating1
No, plug sockets should be in 2.5mm. 1mm cannot carry the current, it'll overheat if you put too high load on it and all sorts of melting and problems can arise. This can take 3A max! 2.5mm can take 16A

Is this suitable for use with an 10.8kw electric shower

Asked by: TabletUser
The 10.8kW load draws 47 amps. Do you mean a 10mm² size? A 10mm² is rated to carry 64 amps clipped direct or in plaster so will be large enough. For other methods of installation ( for example in an insulated wall) it may be insufficient. Please refer to table 4D5 of the wiring regulations.
