When you say supplied by the metre, are the metres joined together, or is indervidual metre strips of cable?
Asked by: Anonymous
All cable supplied is in a continuous length, thus if you order VB10L x 12 you would receive 12m of cable in one piece.

Would this cable be suitable for outside use (Running up the side of a house)?
Asked by: Anonymous
This is not designed for that purpose. However, it will work fine outdoors though the outer sleeve could theoretically deteriate after prolonged exposure.
