Alsecure® range: Low Fire Hazard cables

Reduce smoke production and harmful emissions

Low fire hazard cablesA 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

     
  • significantly delay the propagation of a fire, thus gaining precious time for evacuation and fire-fighting
  • reduce to a minimum opaque smoke and acid gases, the prime cause of fire-related deaths, and damage to equipment and structures
  • a wide range fitting the different country regulations, building types and electrical applications.
 

 

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.
