We supply a full range of Fire Performance cables (also referred to as Fire Survival cables, Fire Resistant cables, FP cables, or simply Fire Cables) with Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) properties when subjected to flames. This includes Firetec-branded ‘Standard’ and ’Enhanced’ cables manufactured in the United Kingdom in accordance with British Standards BS7629-1, BS EN 50200 PH30 / PH60 / PH120,, BS7846 and BS6387 CWZ PH120. These are BASEC-approved, hold LPCB-certification, and form part of the London Underground Limited (LUL) approved product list.
This range is designed to ensure that emergency systems in public buildings continue to operate in some of the most extreme fire conditions.
Our fire performance cables are specifically designed for augmented fire resistance in applications including the delivery of power and auxiliary control in fire alarm systems, emergency lighting systems and voice alarm systems. They are suitable for use within a number of Control Circuit categories. For added protection against the risk of mechanical damage, we supply robust Firetec 'Power' and 'Impact Power' cables, both of which are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. The 'Impact Power' is designed to withstand direct impact and water jet pressure. For additional flexibility, we supply the FRF2 cable, a cable suitable for bending around complex corners as found in environments such as the London Underground network.
Other cables in our fire performance range include Mineral-Insulated (MI) cables, designed to offer the ultimate fire resistance and good protection against electromagnetic interference. These cables are manufactured without any plastic insulation and provide circuit integrity up to 950oC. They are also available with LSZH oversheathing in various colour options. These cables are principally used within hazardous and explosive environments or where corrosive chemicals may affect performance. The LSZH insulated cables hold LPCB-approval. Those without polymer oversheathing have ATEX approval and comply with the EU directives on working within hazardous or explosive environments.
