The new Safe-T-Shield range from FS Cables has been designed to comply with 17th edition revision BS7671:2008, in particular clause 522.6 which relates to the protection against impact of cables that are concealed in a wall or partition at a depth of less than 50mm.
Safe-T-Shield benefits from an aluminium screen and CPC (circuit protection conductor) which, if pierced or accidentally cut minimises the risk of personal injury. It also offers great savings on installation times, containment and weight when compared to SWA.
The high level of screening ensures greatly reduced electromagnetic interference making it the right choice where EMC is a priority. It also benefits from being low smoke halogen free (LSHF) throughout, making it ideal for fixed wiring installations in hospitals, airports, computer rooms and other sensitive environments.
Available in 2, 3 and 4 cores, from 1.5mm² to 6.0mm², Safe-T-Shield is supplied on either 100m or 500m reels, with a free cut to length service available on larger lengths. A 300/500v ‘Safe-T-Shield Lite’ is also available. Orders are shipped next working day as standard, carriage paid on orders over £100.
