Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2.5mm twin and earth Does what it says on the tin and for a good price and being able to get it quick and easy on a Sunday in an emergency was what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Twin earth cable, perfect. I use screwfix for all my diy purchases as they have good quality products at reasonable prices. I bought a twin earth cable which was great quality and perfect for the job in hand. Very easy to order, click & collect was very safe in this Covid situation we’re in. Result!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price Would be handier in smaller lengths, but I am sure that there will be another socket adding at some time.

Is this suitable for running underground to join electric animal fencing

Asked by: egf55
Hi, 6242Y is not suitable for underground running - we would suggest contacting a qualified electrician who will be able to advise on cable type selection.

Is this a 32amp cable

Asked by: Pam62
Thank you for contacting Prysmian Group UK Technical Support. We recommend that you consult a qualified electrician. Teh current rating of the cable is very dependent upon the installation method, understanding and knowledge of BS7671 is a requirement when designing and installing cables.

Is this suitable for wiring from the switch to the immersion heater. If not can you advise what is suitable.

This is not the cable from the fuse box to the switch via a spur.
