Is your cable up to the mark?

Draka is spearheading a campaign aimed at highlighting the dangers of installing electrical cables that fail to comply with the required regulatory standards. It is focusing on the absence of cable marking, without which there is no means of establishing the cable’s authenticity. In the absence of such marking there is every probability that the quality and performance of the cable is highly suspect and is from a disreputable supplier.

The campaign is aimed primarily at installers but, Draka believes that it is a problem that should also concern wholesalers and distributors, specifiers and building control officers.

To help installers, Draka has published a freely-available pocket guide and has an explanatory video presentation on its website ( The company is also inviting anyone who finds unmarked or misleadingly marked cable being installed to send it a sample in support of the campaign’s aims to achieve best practice throughout the industry and eradicate this dangerous practice.
