ABC Cables are highly reliable and insulation has been developed to withstand head cold and intense sunlight. Disturbance and faults occur five to ten times more often in open wire lines than in ABC Lines. There is no risk in touching the live cable and the insulation reduces the number of short circuits and over-voltage faults in overhead cables during thunderstorms. Few hardware accessories are needed as each one can be used with different sizes of cables. This makes installation and storage easier.
