WRAS Material Approval for Contact Cables Ltd
Contact Cables Ltd is delighted to announce that we have been awarded secondary approval by WRAS for the materials used on the Clean Cable 3 series of cables.
WRAS approved materials and products are now being widely adopted by water authorities as a replacement to the H07 RNF rubber cables historically installed in pump installations. The WRAS approved material means it is suitable for use in drinking water environments.
