19 March 2012 Question by: Ivan King | Product code: 02-0762
Q. We are encountering problems trying to obtain a 4 core cable to this specification from DIY outlets e.g. Wickes, B & Q. Is it the same as a 3 core plus earth?
A. Hi Ivan, thanks for your question. Three core and earth cable tends to be single strand wire in each core and not very flexible, whereas this cable is multi strand for each core and hence more flexible. Feel free to buy from us, this item is in stock today (20/03/12) and available for same day despatch if your order is placed by 8pm.
