Guide to Electric Cables

The SAFEhouse Association has published a number of user-friendly guides to provide technical overviews, regulatory information and buying guidelines for the South African electrical industry.

Pierre Nothard, chairman of the SAFEhouse Association, says the prevalence of sub-standard electrical products in South Africa is partly due to misinformation and a lack of information. In an effort to address these issues, the SAFEhouse Guides, which have been authored by industry specialists, provide information that is relevant, concise, and that promotes compliance and electrical safety.
