In today’s building infrastructure safety, fire safety is one of the top priorities. Once a fire spreads uncontrollably, it can quickly cause extensive damage to the property, surroundings and potentially cost human lives. While measures should ideally be in place to ensure a fire never occurs, there should also be a precaution in the event that a fire has been ignited so it can be contained quickly.More Information
How It Works
All accessories involved in the installation of fire resistant cables should also be fire resistant. The cables can be used for fixed installation indoors or outdoors, in soil or ground, and in measuring, control and signaling circuits. ideally, they should be placed in areas where the cable is able to continue operating during a fire, and are crowded and difficult to evacuate.
There is an important distinction between flame retardant and fire resistant cables despite being subjected to various fire performance tests as part of their respective classification. Both cables have different capabilities: fire resistant cables are designed to maintain circuit integrity and continue to operate vital emergency services in the presence of fire while flame retardant cables are designed to be used along a cable route to not propagate fire.
The use of fire resistant cables in Singapore allows high-rise buildings, power plants and other major occasions to be ensured of better fire safety and fire rescue capability. Other applications may also include treatment facilities and hospitals where fire resistance cables in installation equipment offer uninterrupted power supply that can be crucial for the success of treatment procedures.
