Hi All
Just wondered what the most common used boot lace ferrels were in the uk if any one knows, I just came across a panel today with a mass mixture of colours for the same sizes of cable, I do know that german and french do use different colours however the panel had been manufactured in Italy

Cheers Chunky

Just whichever ones are required to fit the conductor really? Have a squint on CPC or Farnel at their ranges. That might give you an idea as to colour vs size. I've never really paid much attention to colour, only the size written on the bag!

the red are 1mm the black 1.5, grey 2.5 , blue 4mm, yellow 6mm these are the general use of colours in panel boards as i happen to wire these things up all the time i think the most common make used would be chambre who also do most of the lugs for larger rated cables. hopefully this is of some use

Try Cable Ties Direct. They do quite a useful selection box including doubles.

I agree with Dave69. We tend to use the left-hand column of colours (white, blue, red, black etc), which I believe is the French colour scheme, I believe the right-hand column is the German colour scheme.

Alan.
