Alsecure® range: Low Fire Hazard cables
Reduce smoke production and harmful emissions
A low level of opacity of smoke produced and acidity of the effluent are basic criteria in the selection of materials that, in the event of fire, make it possible to reduce the presence of dangerous gases and to facilitate escape. It is essential that the production of opaque smoke and harmful emissions is as low as possible during a fire.
The majority of deaths in a fire are due to inhaling dangerous gases. It is vital to reduce the exposure time to these gases by facilitating safe evacuation with the best possible visibility
Restrict the propagation of fire and the heat release
Cables can be the means of propagation of a fire from one room to adjacent rooms; so the control of fire propagation along cable runs has been required in some National Regulations for many years in order to reduce this hazard.
Benefits of ALSECURE® Wires and Cables
Safety can’t wait
Safety is a major concern in Europe. The European Commission created a specific Regulation to align the classification of construction product: the Construction Product Regulation (CPR). Ask Nexans for more information
The CPR will soon come into effect, impacting cables as well, but safety can’t wait.
The ALSECURE® range is already available and can already contribute to changing the level of safety in your projects. Anticipate the future adopting the new generation of safe cables ALSECURE® by Nexans.
Used in residential, public and industrial buildings, fire-resistant cables allow fire alarms, smoke evacuation, lighting, sprinklers, etc. to continue operating during a fire.
