Firetox Flame Retardant Cables 

Flame Retardant Coaxial Cables

Flame Retardant RG6 Coaxial cables

Flame Retardant RG6 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 to MIL-C-17
