Fire Alarm Cables
Fire Alarm is an electronic bell or sounder device. Read More
Standards and Certifications
• ASTM B3 and B8 for copper conductors
• National Engineers Code (NEC) Article 760
• Flame Test 4
• Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Type FPLP
• UL Type CMP or Flame Test 6
These cables are made of copper conductors which are solid, stranded and annealed. Annealing improves their performance and installation as well because it makes the cable flexible. Flexibility improves the ease of transportation and ease of installation. This is because annealed conductors are soft and flexible therefore requires less energy to fold and twist during installation.
• Insulation and Jacketing
The following insulation materials are used:
• FR Polypropylene
• Polyvinyl Chloride
Insulating and jacketing Fire Alarm Cables protects the user from electric shocks and the cable as well. They ensure the handler is not subjected to electric shocks. Fire Alarm cables are subjected to harsh environmental conditions and therefore superb insulation and jacketing, which offers chemical and mechanical protection is needed.
Aluminum Mylar is used to shield the conductors from mechanical impacts. Shielding is responsible for maintaining the circular core for these cables.
