Fire Survival Cable


Fire Survival Cables are used where circuit integrity is required to remain intact for at least three hours during fire conditions, so as to activate and maintain crucial functions such as fire fighting, public announcements, smoke extraction systems, sprinklers, emergency lighting, evacuation path lighting systems etc. 

The areas for Fire resistant cable applications include shopping malls, cinema theaters, educational institutions, airport terminals, metro rail networks, high rise office buildings etc. These cables also find use in power generation facilities, petrochemical complexes, nuclear power facilities, mines etc. for phased shut down of the plant and to keep critical functions like communication, rescue and evacuation systems functional during a fire.
