16A 230v 2.5mm2 lead

  • Sale
  • Regular price £12.99

Ideal for connecting:

  • Construction, commercial including welding and industrial applications to connect equipment with an IEC 60309 plug to a IEC 60309 socket.
  • Caravans and motor homes on camp sites, where they are commonly referred to as 'caravan hook ups'.
  • Boats to marina power supplies, commonly referred to as a 'hook-up' or 'shore line' power cable.
  • Generators e.g. to catering vans.
  • Extending the cable on TESLA Gen 2 chargers. See here for further information. 

Standard 16A extension leads are often made from smaller 1.5mm easy to damage artic blue cable, which does not comply with the requirements of BS7671 IEE for connecting caravans (2.5mm minimum cable required) or for use on construction/demolition sites (HF07RN-F cable or equivalent required). Due to its poor resistance to both mechanical/UV damage it also is entirely unsuitable for marine applications.

In contrast, these leads are carefully constructed in our workshop from the highest quality and most robust cable and plug/sockets available. The much larger sized 2.5mm H07RN-F rubber cable is specifically manufactured for harsh environments and its safety and performance under extreme conditions simply cannot be beaten. When combined with top quality, extremely robust plugs and sockets, our leads will withstand tough daily on-site use for considerably longer than any other type.


  • Available in 2m, 5m, 10m, 15m, 20m and 25m lengths - select the required length from the drop down list above.
  • Heavy duty IEC 60309 16A plug and socket (commonly referred to as CEE, industrial, commando or camping connectors).
  • 2.5mm2 cable for high current applications.
  • The industrial specification H07RN-F rubber cable is specifically manufactured for harsh environments. Find out what’s so special about this cable
  • There is no regulatory requirement to use orange cable for caravan hook ups. Organisations like the Caravan Club simply recommend it for increased visibility in grass. This increased visibility comes at the cost of using a far less robust PVC cable.
  • Cable is extremely flexible, bending to 6 times its overall diameter.
  • Very good mechanical resistance to impact and abrasion, making it ideal for harsh environments on-site.
  • Unlike normal PVC cables, it doesn’t tangle itself into a giant birds nest! Pop it on the floor, give it a wiggle, and it’ll generally straighten out. No matter how long it is stored coiled up, it instantly straightens.
  • Resistant to accidental exposure to a wide range of chemicals, including most oils and greases.
  • Whist we would never recommend that you submerse an extension lead, it’s good to know that just in case it ends up running through a puddle, the cable it’s actually submersible to a depth of 100m (NB. the plug/socket are rated as IP44 - never use an extension lead near water!)
  • Cable retains its flexibility and performance over a wide temperate range from -25 to 55°C.
  • Please contact us for custom lengths. 32A version also available.
  • PAT tested.

A version designed specifically for entertainment, stage lighting and theatre applications with a black plug and socket is also available.
