Nexans cables protect sprinklers and fire exits

Nexans has enhanced its Alsecure® range of fire-resistant, PIN FR technology, low smoke cables with the new NX600 cables, for 30, 60 and 120 minute applications as defined by BS 8519. This means that, in case of fire, the cables will continue to transmit power and communications signals for sprinklers, alarm systems and fire exits for periods long enough to ensure the functioning of these safety installations and the escape of occupants.

The NX600 cables use PIN flame retardants to ensure fire performance, they are insulated by mica and cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE), ensuring high temperature resistance and reliability and thin layer insulation, facilitating installation and minimising space use, and they have low smoke and fume bedding and sheathing. Nexans state “halogen-free quality of the NX600 cable ensures that poisonous gases aren’t released during a fire”.
