FIREGUARD Flame Retardant Cables

Flame Retardant Coaxial Cables

Flame Retardant RG59 B/U Coaxial cables

Flame Retardant RG59 B/U Coaxial cables

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 adapted to MIL-C-17

Note: Asterisk ** denotes that the standard compliance is optional, depending on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the cable design.

CABLE CONSTRUCTION

Conductors: Copper clad steel, solid according to IEC(EN) 60228 class 1.

Insulation: PE compound.

Overall Screen: Plain copper wire braid

Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound. UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti rodent

and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC

60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the overall cable

design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
