Draka FT Data Cable BS5839 IEC60331-2

Firetuf Data is a group of high performance fire survival data cables 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.

The twisted pair cables provide high data transmission rates and have been developed to mimic Cat-5 cabling as closely as possible. Increasingly popular with system integrators for BMS applications, the cables can be terminated using traditional LAN Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC) making them ideal for use in horizontal backbone wiring systems in offices and public buildings.

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