FumeGuard™ Construction

6181B, 6241B, 6242B and 6243B Insulated and Sheathed Cables

FumeGuard™ cables are rated to a maximum sustained conductor operating temperature of 90°C. This giving FumeGuard™ cables a better current rating capacity, Table 4E2A of BS7671 Wiring Regulations, and hence provides the opportunity for using a reduced conductor size when compared to 70°C rated low smoke zero halogen or low smoke fume cable equivalents.

Fumeguard 6242B Easystrip Cable

Used for surface wiring in power and lighting applications. Sheath has UV Protection against direct sunlight.

BASEC Approved to BS7211
