CW1600 LSHF Limited Fire Hazard Telephone Cable

This cable is similar in design and application to CW1308 but with the addition of an aluminium foil screen and Low Smoke Halogen Free cores and sheath.

Used for the internal wiring of buildings where the need to protect people and equipment from smoke and fumes is paramount. CW1600 has the added advantage of an aluminium/polyester foil screen and drain wire.

A fire barrier tape is included on cable with more than 6 pairs. A rip cord is located directly under the jacket to make stripping the outer sheath easier.
