Are You Sure That Your Low-smoke Cables are also Halogen-free?
Ensure that your cable of choice is truly Low Smoke Non Halogen, fully compliant with IEC standards and ultimately offers maximum safety and assurance in application.
Awareness of the impact of smoke and harmful gases emitted during a fire has led to a growing demand for an alternative to the more traditional plastic halogenated cable constructions.
As a consequence, Low Smoke and Fume cables are commonplace; however, in the event of a fire these cables can still release toxic and corrosive gases. It is often confusing to determine the difference between a Low Smoke cable and a Low Smoke Non Halogen cable so we have created a document to help explain the differences.
