Building Wires

For easier, faster and safer jobs

Our range of installation cables are designed to provide an efficient and optimised working environment, excellent results and easier handling of packaging.

Seamless and Flexible Installations

When we develop an installation cable at NKT, the best working environment is always an important parameter.
This means that our cables are compliant, easily scaled, easy to assemble and that they have as low friction as possible. A low-friction cable easily slides out of the package and through pipes or flexible conduits without the slightest resistance.

Always a neat result

We know that the visual result is very important for installers. Therefore, we want to supply cable that provides stylish bends and high resistance to discolouration. When you choose cable from NKT you can rest assured that the end result will be very neat.

Our smart packaging makes the job easier

All electricians know how tedious it is to carry heavy and cumbersome cables, chase rolling cable drums or pull curled cable out of cardboard boxes.
At NKT, we want to help the installers' everyday work life by developing smart and ergonomic packaging that enhances the working environment.

Halogen-Free for Safety and the Environment

We carry a large assortment of halogen-free cables that meet all necessary CPR requirements within the EU. Thus, our cables contribute to safe and environmentally friendly building projects.

Safer Installations with the CPR Standard

A new coordinated EU standard for cables became mandatory 2017. The new standard is included in the CPR (Construction Products Regulation) and concerns fire classification and test methods for cables used in buildings.
To satisfy the requirements of this standard, at NKT we have developed our processes so that we can test cables in accordance with applicable guidelines and with checks from third parties. This means that our cables are completely up to date in terms of performance and classification.

Development in Our Own Laboratories

We develop and test our cables in our own research laboratories in close proximity to our factories in Denmark and Sweden. Having the lab so close to production is a great advantage.
We have ongoing dialogue between developers, customer service and production, which makes us responsive and flexible to the customers.

I was pleasantly surprised. The cable was easy to strip and felt thin, but still stable.
