Aluminum cable is much lighter than copper and is much more flexible and easier to handle. This makes for quicker installation and offers advantages for those doing the installing.

The most popular type of cable is RWU with -40ºC XLPE insulation, and the combination of sizes now being specified is:

• #4-01 aluminum RWU, in Black, Red, and White

Priority carries and supplies this range of sizes and colours from our stock in Mississauga, both in bulk and cut-to-length reels such as 1,000M and 300M. We can supply exactly the lengths that each site needs.

Priority also offers other services to support cable management at job sites including:
