Transportation

As a cable specialist in the mass transit sector, Habia continues to develop and manufacture a range of approved and custom cables to meet the challenges of 21st Century transportation.

Habia cables are smaller size and light weight

Our insulation materials are rated for higher temperatures, allowing the wires to carry a higher current than conventional cables. This means smaller cross sections can be used, enabling substantial cost and weight savings.

Approvals - national norms for specific applications

Habia has been extremely successful in following normalization of individual countries where the standards differ from international qualifications. The high level of flexibility within our factory in Söderfors, Sweden, allows us to offer a wide range of custom designed cables down to such small quantities as 100 metres in length. With all the cost advantages of low minimum order quantities and scheduled quick delivery timescales, protecting against materials shortages.
