BS6004 Cable


Voltage Rating Uo/U 300/500V

Temperature Rating -5°C to +70°C

Minimum Bending Radius

Fixed: 6 x overall diameter


British Standard BS6004 specifies the requirements for Low Voltage (LV) flexible Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) insulated and PVC oversheathed cables commonly used in final circuits in building, including electric power supply and lighting applications with a voltage range of up to and including 300V/500V.


This standard covers cables from domestic building wiring flat twin & earth (T&E), to 618Y cable for domestic and industrial use in dry and damp areas, through to Arctic grade cable for sub-zero Celsius applications (-40°). These fixed wiring cables are typically used in domestic and light industrial areas.

Eland Cables portfolio of BS6004 cables includes a comprehensive range of BASEC-approved cables, including our twin & earth (T&E), 6181Y and 318-A cables.
