The Metreel range of flatform cable and glands have been developed principally for use in conjunction with Festoon Systems for the conveyance of power to cranes, hoists and similar traversing equipment. Flatform cable can also be utilised for static wiring applications where the flat profile is particularly suitable for laying against walls, in cable trays, etc.

The cables form a small bend radius and offer the advantage of a reduced storage length where space is restricted. Flatform cable combinations are generally more stable on outdoor applications where high cross winds are experienced. Various combinations of cables may be selected from this standard range which covers the majority of power and control cable requirements. The smooth exterior profile, rectangular with rounded corners, lends itself to easy stacking of cable combinations and sealing at the cable gland.
