Prysmian is the first and currently the only cable manufacturer to have BASEC approval for enhanced fire resistant power cable.

Prysmian's FP600S enhanced performance fire resistant power cable is now approved by BASEC for compliance with the new highest level F120 category of the recently revised cable standard BS 7846:2009 for armoured, fire resistant 600/1000V cables having low emission of smoke and corrosive gas when affected by fire.

FP600S sets the highest standard in stranded armour cables for protected circuits for emergency electrical services in large or complex buildings, where only the best performing fire resistant power cable can provide the necessary protection.

This enhanced performance cable is designed specifically to meet the more onerous fire survival requirements now being requested by regulators and specifiers for life safety systems, property protection and fire fighting systems that must remain functional in the event of a fire.

Prysmian marketing manager, Julie Mould comments, "All Prysmian cables are meticulously tested to ensure that they don't just meet but exceed stringent British Standards requirements.  By choosing FP600S, specifiers can be confident that the cable meets all necessary standards."
