*When installed in ¾” minimum EMT (or RMC) conduit utilizing steel set screw fittings

Designed to meet the requirements of UL2196 when tested in conduit. Available in both shielded and unshielded versions.

Low smoke zero halogen insulated fire-rated twisted pair cable for protection of critical fire alarm circuits.

IDH Kilflam™ CIC fire alarm cables are designed to be 2-hour fire-rated to UL 2196 and ULC S139 when installed in conduit and in accordance with the requirements of the relevant U.S. and Canadian codes. IDH Kilflam™ CIC meets the survivability requirements for fire alarms circuits as outlined in the National Fire Alarm Code (NFPA 70), and the Canadian National Building Code. Install in accordance with the details described in Electrical Circuit Protective System (FHIT), System No. 26 of the UL Fire Resistance Directory.

IDH Kilflam™ CIC fire alarm cable connects the data-gathering panels (transponders) throughout the building and the main fire alarm panel.

Flexible IDH Kilflam™ CIC utilises a tubed jacket, making it the easiest cable on the market to terminate – no special tools required.

Applications include the main trunk or “backbone” of multiplex alarm systems in high-rise buildings and institution, and from each data-gathering panel to the point they enter the notification zone being served.

IDH Kilflam™ CIC can be found in the following applications:
High-rise buildings, for fire alarm and voice communication systems.
Hospitals and other institutions where mobility is limited, for emergency communication systems.
Tunnels and subways, for the emergency voice communication system.
Airports, stadiums, hotels, banks, etc.
