Military cables made to BS3G210, Def Stan 61-12 and VG 95218

Seaguard LWB VG

We’ve supplied the defence sector with a wide variety of naval and land forces military cables and harnesses since the 1970s, and our military-grade products meet some of the toughest specifications in the world.

Whether on land or in the sea, our military cables are designed for maximum performance regardless of the physical, thermal and chemical conditions they may face.

Wires and cable solutions for land forces

Our BS3G210 and VG 95218 product ranges use high specification materials to ensure thin wall insulation and jacketing, and is used extensively in military and industrial applications where fuel resistance and a wide temperature range are required. The VG 95218 range of single and multicore cables holds VDE approval, and includes a range of cables suitable for the high temperatures, vibration, oils and fuels associated with fighting vehicles.

Cables for naval applications

Designed to meet the British Defence Standards: 61-12 Part 9, Part 18 and Part 25 our cables provide an impressive balance of rugged performance and Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) properties for submarines and surface ships.

Cables to the VG Standard 95218-29 have an intended use as submarine outboard cables. These are pressure resistant and partially water-blocked for use up to 61 bars, as defined by the shipyards.
