Cables for London Underground LUL Applications

Habia Cable has made its name in the underground by offering LUL cables that are small and light-weight (giving reductions in cable-tray sizes and significant benefits for space-critical applications). This also means that you can often install our cables in existing spaces sometimes without removing old wiring; we have demonstrably reduced installation times by as much as 50%.

Our custom design ethos means we can offer genuine multicore constructions where almost any arrangement of cores and screens can be designed, all to meet the demanding requirements of Section 12 applications.

  • Alarm system cables
  • Communications cables
  • Wiring and safety cables for Escalators and Lifts
