Direct Burial

INTERKAB provide a range of cables suitable for direct burial applications. Some standard BS and IEC specification power and control cables are suitable for direct burial under certain circumstances. However, direct burial cables generally include additional materials and compounds to provide added water ingress protection and protect against rodents and termites.

Historically lead has been used extensively in these cables to provide this level of protection. Lead is still widely used in these cables across the world particularly for power transmission, however in recent years there has been a significant shift in the industry toward the use of more environmentally acceptable materials such as aluminium and polyamide.

INTERKAB can provide solutions for direct burial cables in accordance with industry specifications which accommodate either requirements for lead or lead alternative materials.
