Electrical installation with flat cable

The flat cable system enables connections to be made without interrupting the cable.

This allows a tremendously fast electrical installation and ensures an optimal current flow without contact points on the power-supplying line.

Quick and simple 

Installed up to 90% faster. 


Modular flexible construction. 


Prevents incorrect assembly. 

Can be prefabricated 

Just plug it together.

Flat cable compared to round cable

  • High assembly effort with round cable installation
  • Cut round cable from box to box
  • Lead the cable through the socket
  • Strip the jacket
  • Strip the wires
  • Crimp end sleeves
  • Clamp the wires in the clamp
  • Close the can
  • Installation only by a specialist
  • Time 10 to 15 minutesv

IP68 cabling systems

  • High IP protection class
  • low installation effort
  • Easy handling and easy expandability
  • IP68 protected at every location

Where are these Woertz-cables used?

  • The high IP68 degree of protection thus allows the use in tunnel construction, where many connections must be made on long installation routes.
  • The system offers great flexibility and robustness in all phases of construction and use. These are ideal characteristics for use in civil engineering.
  • IP66/68 not only allows use in humid environments, but the boxes are dust-tight, making them a convenient installation method in workshops, carpentry shops, or industrial plants.
  • No complex sealing measures are required for the flat cable boxes. The cable is not interrupted, and thus no sources of error are installed.

Woertz flat-cables certified to the highest standard according to B2ca s1 d0.

The Construction Products Regulation specifies which classes have to be used in everyday construction work. Woertz flat cable systems are halogen-free, have flame-retardant and low-smoke properties – according to IEC and EN. With the highest construction product classification B2ca s1 d0 a1, our flat cables are far above the standard requirements of cables without critical behavior. With our solutions we guarantee you a safe installation in buildings – even in the worst case.
