2491X to BS 6004 Cables

APPLICATION
Airprot cables are multicore stranded flexible cables sheathed with thermoplastic PVC compound. The
cables can be offered with the ability to restrict the propagation of the flame in the event of a fire. This
is especially important to slow down the spreading of the fire as the cables may pass from one area
to another within a building. Applications can be found in control and power circuits, power stations,
underground tunnels, lifts, escalators, and high-rise buildings.
