Whether you have rodents, cats, dogs, or other animals biting at your wires or a need for EMI/RFI shielding, our braided metal sleeving could be the answer for you. Braided from tin (Sn) coated copper (Cu), it is both flexible and strong, with superior EMI protection. EMI/RFI is commonly referred to as electrical noise. Tinned copper metal braided sleeving is an ideal shielding material for short-run cables. It can provide added shielding in retrofit applications, and is much more flexible and much less susceptible to cracking than foil solutions.

Q:size

What size of Braided Metal sleeve would accept 12/2 or 14/2 romex with a ground wire. Would I need 1/2 inch or larger. Thanks. Phil

Asked by Anonymous user on

A:Answers

  • - Thank you for your question. While 1/2" is probably enough, I would go a little bigger and you can always make it tighter.
