Wiring Systems

A wiring systems consists of the conductor, its insulation, mechanical protection and the accessories. A PVC (polyvinyl chloride) sheathed cable wiring system, employing a four way plastic joint box for terminating the cables.

(i) Neatness of finished wiring

(ii) Durability of installation

(iii) Possible future extension or alteration

(iv) Safety and completion period

(v) Suitability for special conditions, e.g. fumes, wetness, heat, etc.
