Our recently formed Cables Division is a significant development in the extension of the service capabilities of the R&M Group. We now have the ability to supply from stock all aspects of electrical installation materials, from first fix of cable support and containment through to switchgear, lighting, distribution and control.

Our Cable Division stocks the following range of cables:

  • Power cables from 600/1000 volts to 132,000 volts – for all environments (i.e.) LSF, Mining and Oil, Gas & Petrochemical onshore and offshore.
  • Control and Instrumentation cables including – BS5308, Multicore Control YY, SY and CY types
  • Elastomeric power and signal cables – Coil Lead, Welding, BS6007, Crane, Rail Signalling
  • Data and Telecomm cables – CAT 5E, Belden Equivalents, Fibre Optics, Armoured and Un-armoured Telephone Cables
