A low smoke zero halogen polyurethane jacket is the characteristic of the material behaviour. The cables are flame retardant and self-extinguishing in the event of a fire, showing low smoke emissions and are 100% halogen free.
The material is a thermoplastic, low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) flame retardant, UV stabilized, natural jacketing compound combining with excellent extrusion properties. The composition is based on the elements Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Silicon and Calcium. Compounds based on these elements will therefore be the only significant constituents of the combustion fumes. Other elements may be present in concentrations less than 0.1%.
We offer LSZH Jacket on all our cables. The LSZH jacketed cables are identical with cables listed in this section, except for the jacket and the final diameter which is slightly larger.
The cables are normally used in special areas, such as tunnels, safety environments, computer rooms, hospitals, where the risk of fire and smoke has to be kept to a minimum. The cables mainly replace PVC-jacketed cables.
