LSZH are ideal for installations in public buildings or near sensitive equipment such as computer rooms or datacentres. Not to be confused with LSF cables, LSZH are those which emit minimal fumes in the event of fire.
Our LSZH cables are Low Smoke Zero Halogen throughout - both insulation and sheath.
For the ultimate protection, many cables are offered with an overall armour and PE jacket.
Using the standard cable as a base, these cables feature a tough, PE inner sheath and 0.9mm solid galvanised steel wires cased in a heavy waterproof PE jacket.
The armoured range from FS Cables is ideal for installations where physical damage, vandalism or rodent attack could be a problem. They are also suitable for direct burial in the ground.
External & Duct Grade Cables
FS supply a number of cables with the added protection of a heavy, black, UV resistant, waterproof, polyethylene jacket. The standard PVC inner jacket is retained for added protection and makes termination easier and faster.
The PE jacket not only protects the cable from moisture but also adds to the physical strength of the cable.
Ideal for clipping to masts, running up the sides of buildings, across roofs, or for installations in schools, industrial yards and CCTV networks.
There are many screening options available from individual and overall tinned copper wire braid screens to tapes and foils.
Braiding can be used for either mechanical protection or screening against electromagnetic interference (EMI) or to give the cable torsional strength.
Many of our products are also independently tested for compliance to various independant and international fire performance standards.Some examples include Flame Retardance IEC 60332-1-2, IEC 60332-3-24C, UL 1685, Smoke Emission IEC 61034-2, UL 1685 and Halogen Emission IEC 60754-1 & 2.Additionally, the Draka FT range provides continued functionality in the event of fire to critical networks.
Many of our cables have been tested to meet a range of approvals and standards.
As a member of the KNX Association we offer a certified KNX cable from stock. HDBaseT approval is offered on Cat 5E and Cat 6.
Additionally London Underground (LU) approval is offered on a number of cables as well as various approvals from international bodies.
