Gardex is a UL listed, low smoke, zero halogen armoured power cable that provides outstanding performance in the most rugged of environments. It’s a multicore, self-contained conduit and wiring system that is simplicity itself to install and connect. The continuously welded and corrugated aluminium sheath provides excellent protection against mechanical and physical abuse, and the hermetically sealed barrier is impervious to water, gas and corrosive elements, giving it outstanding reliability. Gardex cables can be installed on trays, in ducting or conduits or can be self-supported or buried directly in the ground.


*Rated 90°C for normal operation in wet and dry locations, 130°C for emergency overload conditions, and 250°C for short circuit conditions.
