    I too sometimes use cabtyre for switches.

    Also some Cabtyre has better intrinsic properties for heat, oil and all that so in some cases better to use that.

    My boss is one who saw cabtyre and inevitably failed it until I told him it can be used and then the subsequent regs.
    He says still sits funny but hey.

    Then I explained some of its nice uses for multiple switching and then some properties of the cable so he did see some value in that.

    Either way electrical business is constant CPD.

    Side note, why is it called cabtyre? Is it like creepy crawly which is a brand name that is now used for a underwater cleaner haha?
    In the UK they call it flex but not sure if that is just what they call it and is actually a different item?

    If you look at the reg 6.1.11 and 6.3.3 ... I would assume you have to sleeve or tape the cabtyre blue wire ... if used it as a neutral.

    It is not often that you see cabtyre used to wire houses ... in all my years as a sparkie ... only twice.

    Day/night switches ... that's another story ... cabtyre with yellow/green used as the return (live) and 1.5 twin with hte bare earth used as the return (live) ... with a sleeve ... very common ... in most cases the yellow/green is not taped or sleeved and the bare earth has a black sleeve.
