In an increasingly interconnected world, security and sound systems play a crucial role in safeguarding people, property, and information. To ensure optimal performance and reliability, investing in high-quality cables is essential. Our state-of-the-art Security & Commercial Audio Cable, specifically designed for security and sound applications, is the perfect choice for professionals seeking top-notch performance. With its impressive features and robust construction, our 2 Conductor 18 AWG Shielded CMR Cable is an ideal solution for a wide range of installations.

Unparalleled Performance:

The core of our Security & Commercial Audio Cable consists of two 18 AWG stranded bare copper conductors, providing excellent conductivity and signal integrity. These conductors are specifically engineered to transmit audio signals with utmost clarity and fidelity, ensuring exceptional sound quality.

Enhanced Protection:

Security and commercial audio systems require cables that offer superior shielding to mitigate electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). Our cable features a reliable Beldfoil® shield, which effectively eliminates external interference, ensuring uninterrupted communication and crystal-clear sound reproduction. The shield acts as a protective barrier, guarding against potential signal degradation and external disturbances.

Robust Construction:

Durability is a key consideration when selecting cables for security and sound applications, as they are often subject to rigorous conditions. Our 2 Conductor 18 AWG Shielded CMR Cable is constructed with a PVC jacket that provides excellent resistance against abrasion, moisture, and environmental factors. This robust jacket ensures long-term reliability and extends the lifespan of the cable, even in challenging installation environments.

Easy Installation:

We understand the importance of efficient installation in time-sensitive projects. Our Security & Commercial Audio Cable is designed with a ripcord feature, enabling effortless jacket stripping and termination. This user-friendly design allows for quick and hassle-free installation, reducing labor costs and minimizing downtime.

Compliance and Safety:

When it comes to security and commercial installations, compliance with industry standards is non-negotiable. Our 2 Conductor 18 AWG Shielded CMR Cable meets the requirements for Riser-CMR (Communications Multipurpose Riser) applications, ensuring that it can be safely and legally installed in vertical spaces such as risers and shafts.


Our Security & Commercial Audio Cable is suitable for a wide range of applications, including but not limited to:

  • Security systems and surveillance installations.
  • Commercial audio and public address systems.
  • Access control and intercom systems.
  • Fire alarm and emergency communication systems.

When it comes to security and sound applications, our 2 Conductor 18 AWG Shielded CMR Cable stands out as a reliable and high-performance solution. With its exceptional shielding, durable construction, and easy installation features, this cable guarantees superior signal integrity, enhanced security, and unmatched sound quality. Invest in our premium cable today and experience the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have chosen the best for your security and sound systems.
