Fire Protection for Cable Installations: Effective Measures for Preventing Cable Fires

Cable installations are found in all types of modern buildings – from industrial plants to power stations and office buildings. Cables are routed on countless cable support systems that run hidden in cable tunnels, behind wall and ceiling cladding.

Electrical cables are prone to self-ignition as a result of overheating or short circuiting; also, they can be set ablaze by exposure to external fire or heat. In either case, flames will spread along the cables with lightning speed because cable sheaths and insulations are usually combustible.

Approved solutions for cable fire protection exert a delaying effect on the spread of fire and will thus help to keep damage to a minimum.

Effective protection of cable installations throughout the world: Our tried and tested products PYRO-SAFE® FLAMMOTECT-A and PYRO-SAFE® DG-CR 0.7 reliably protect cables routed through high-rise buildings, industrial buildings, offshore installations as well as in highly sensitive areas, e.g. hospitals, airports, production plants, power stations, substations and nuclear facilities.

Fire protection coating PYRO-SAFE® FLAMMOTECT-A and fire protection bandage PYRO-SAFE® DG-CR 0.7 exhibit excellent resistance: They form a reliable protective shield around the cables and also enhance their insulation performance against environmental influences such as UV radiation, salt water, oil and other chemicals.

Fit for Adverse Weather Conditions: Added Protection for Cables from External Influences

Outdoor cables are affected by a multitude of environmental influences: exposure to UV radiation, oil or chemicals causes cables to become brittle and flammable. Cable sheaths are not usually designed to withstand these kinds of environmental impact so that there is a significantly increased risk of fire and failure.

Providing cables with extra layer of protection, either by means of a special coating or by wrapping them with cable bandage, will extend the cables’ service life while reducing the risk of failure. Downtimes are thus a thing of the past.

Effective Fire Protection Penetration Seals for Safety to Rely on: Cable Runs and Cable Installations Approved to IEC 60331, IEC 60332 or FM 3971
