FumeGuard™ cables are manufactured using a Thermosetting insulating material, which exhibits improved resistance to external attack by chemicals; improved mechanical strength and abrasion resistance compared to equivalent cables manufactured using Thermoplastic insulating materials.

Specifers can rely on the FumeGuard™ name; it complies fully with the British Standards. Not all cables are ‘fire safety’ compliant to these standards despite being promoted like this.

Safety Tests

FumeGuard™ cables are fire safety tested to:

Smoke Emission:BS EN 61034, IEC 61034-2
Flame Retardent:BS EN 60332-I-2
Acid Gas Emission:BS EN 50267-2-1, IEC 60754-1
Degree of Acidity Emissions:BS EN 50267-2-3, IEC 60754-2.

FumeGuard™ Construction

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.
