FIRE RESISTANT COMMUNICATIONS CABLES

We can offer non-flame-spreading cables, non-fire-spreading cables, and fire-resistant cables.

Sometimes there is a tendency to mix the concepts. However, the differences are still significant since fire-resistant cables, in addition to having an excellent reaction to fire, like the first ones, allow the circuit to be kept in operation for a few minutes in the presence of a fire. They are allowing the security systems to act correctly.

Below is a summary table of the standards used in tests for each case of behaviour and fire resistance.

CharacteristicsCable installed vertically which, in the presence of a flame, is self-extinguishing.A set of vertical cables that, in the presence of a flame, self-extinguishes and does not propagate fire.Cables that do not propagate in the presence of fire, are self-extinguishing and maintain their operation for certain minutes.
