Electrical & Armored Cables Supplier Dubai



Cables are a vital component of any industry, and Riyal being one of the oldest cable suppliers in UAE, works towards not just connecting cables, but organizations safely.

Armoured Cables have double protection and are used for underground cabling, mainlines and transformers, etc. As one size does not fit all, we unlike any other armoured cable suppliers in Dubai, have stocked and delivered various sizes of Armoured Cables to suit your specific needs for over two decades now. We are also the proud Distributors for the National Cable Industry (NCI) and one of the leading electrical cable suppliers in UAE.

Commonly known as SWA cable, the steel wire armoured cable is a power and auxiliary control cable, designed for use in mains supply electricity. It is majorly used for underground systems, cable networks, power networks, outdoor and indoor applications, as well as the cable ducting.

The SWA cable can also be referred to mains cable, power cable, armoured cable and booklet-armoured cable. With copper wiring creating the perfect conductors for the core and safety at large. The range of these wires vary from 2 core, 3 core and 4 core SWA Cables to name a few.

The typical construction of SWA PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) cable is as follows:
Conductor Class 2 stranded plain copper conductor to BS EN 60228:2005
Insulation XLPE (Cross-Linked Polyethylene)
Bedding PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
Armouring SWA (Steel Wire Armour)
Sheath PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
Sheath Colour Black (Carbon loaded for UV stability)
Voltage Rating 600/100V

The SWA Cable is designed to have mechanical protection, which is why the cable is often recommended and used for external purposes. The melting point of steel is a little over 2x more than that of aluminium, making these wires highly durable for heavy and long distance easy transmissions.

The armour is further used to reduce any risk of the cable getting pinched or damaged. Whereas the steel is used to protect the armoured cable. These armoured power cables are coated with an unreactive material to protect the core from any external or mechanical damage caused by the environment that they are installed in. This further makes the SWA cables heavy, which in turn makes them extremely difficult to bend. Which is why they are most suited for underground cabling or fixed to outdoor walls using cable cleats.

Advantages of Armoured Cable

  1. Armoured cables have high-temperature resistance.
  2. Armoured cables can withstand stronger mechanical forces and prevent damage from external forces.
  3.  Strong anti-electromagnetic interference capability to improve the stability of power transmission.

With a strong presence as the electrical suppliers in Dubai since 1999, we are dedicated to cater to each customer with an extensive range of wires, including rubber cables, Pvc flexible wires and instrumentation cables.
