Fire Resisting Cables

Fire resistant RG6 QUAD Coaxial cables

Fire resistant RG6 QUAD Coaxial cables

RG6 QUAD FR

Application

The cables are designed for CCTV, security, smoke detection and evacuation monitoring applications, where

continued functionality is required during a fire situation. Due to the zero halogen low smoke construction,

this cable is ideal for use in public, commercial and industrial environments.

Standards

Basic design to MIL-C-17
