Draka FT Coax Cable BS5839 IEC60331-2

Firetuf Coax is a high performance fire survival coax cable manufactured by Draka and designed to carry on functioning even in the event of a fire. This allows safe monitoring of evacuation routes without putting lives at risk.

Where video is carried the coax performs in a similar way to RG59 which is widely used in the CCTV sector. This allows continued monitoring of fire exits and evacuation routes in the event of a fire. BNC connectors part no. YFTCBC1# are available to suit Firetuf Coax.

Where people and property come first the Draka Firetuf Data cable range provides the ideal solution.
