Rip cord Identification of Security Cables



We are pleased to announce that as of January 2017 CQR will manufacture security cables that contain a coloured rip cord.

This change has been made after consultation and feedback from installers in relation to BS4737-3.30:2015, and allows the identification of the cable type after it has been installed.



There will be a simple colour coding or the rip cord to allow the type of cable to be identified
