Be cautious of risky counterfeit wires and cables


Every day there is news about properties and human life lost due to fire accidents. Some of these are caused by electrical faults. The main components of electrical systems in a residential or a commercial building are mainly the cable, switchgear, joints and appliances. There is actually nothing in our households today where electricity is not being used. Electricity can be dangerous to humans and our assets when the wrong design and low quality products are used. It is a simple combination of short circuits and heat that can create a fire. Most faults happen when the cable wire is too small in size to carry the required electricity. Insulation material is another important factor on the thickness and quality of materials. It is therefore always important to ensure the best electrical design is maintained through a professional and qualified electrical company or person. The most important, after a design, is the installation and quality products. This will ensure you and your property are safe.

Oman Cables Industry (SAOG) develops, manufactures a totally integrated variety of electrical products which includes Building Wires and Low Voltage cables.
