Standard & Enhanced Fire Cables

Eland Cables supplies a comprehensive fire performance cable portfolio including Standard grade and Enhanced grade fire resistant cables, available for next-day delivery from stock. These cables are BASEC approved, and we supply LPCB certified products that meet standards including BS6387 (category C,W,Z) and BS EN 50200 (Class PH120). Both the Standard cable and Enhanced cable offer a broad conductor operating temperature range of -40oC to +90oC. 

Sheathed in a hard-skin Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) thermoplastic compound, they have applications including as voice alarm cables, fire alarm cables and as emergency lighting cables. The Standard Fire Resistant Cable is generally used for single phase evacuation buildings, insulated with high performance silicone rubber, whereas the Enhanced Fire Resistant cable, with its mica glass tape layer wrapped around the conductor providing an additional fire barrier, can be used in instances requiring further prolonged use.
