  HydroBloc™ Multi-Conductor Shielded  
         
   
  The Gepco® Brand HydroBloc™ multi-conductor shielded speaker and control cables are ideal for permanent installation in wet locations. The conductors consist of stranded or solid bare copper conductors that are insulated with a PVC insulation compound. For added noise rejection and suppression, the conductors are shielded with a durable 100% foil/Mylar® and tinned copper drain wire. The outer jacket is extruded from a low-friction PVC that is easy to install and pull through conduit. Gepco Brand shielded speaker and control cables are available in 18 through 22 AWG. With advanced water-blocked construction, the HydroBloc line utilizes a two-ply water-blocking tape and water-swellable fillers to prevent transverse and longitudinal water ingress.
