Products / Control cables – for normed safety / MUNFLEX®-ShipCable-Y


These are cables that are considerable more cost-effectively constructed and easier to use than the traditional heavy rubberised cables usually used in ship building. Thanks to the relatively low exterior diameter, the high levels of flexibility and, in the Y version, the shielding with regard to magnetic interference, these can be used in a wide range of ship building applications.

The cables are approved for use, according to construction, on both inland and sea-going vessels and for various applications: In the areas above and below deck, in end power circuit areas, for room lighting and heating in the living quarters, for cranes and lift systems, on tool machines as well as within central control rooms for connecting devices to devices in own cable ducts and for alarm and signalling systems.


The cores are black and sequentially numbered and the outer layer has a green-yellow earth conductor.

The cables are approved for installation on ships in accordance with the following approvals:

  • Lloyd's Register of Shipping (LRS)
  • Klassifizierungsgesellschaft Germanischer Lloyd (GL)
