Caledonian FIREGUARD Cables

FIREGUARD cables are constructed in the following typical design:
  1. Solid/stranded annealed copper conductor
   2. Glass mica tape/silicone rubber as flame barrier
  3. XLPE/PVC as insulation
  4. Normal or Flame retardant FRPVC as sheath
FIREGUARD cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material is usually PVC with different levels of fire retardance properties to meet different stringent environment requirement. The cables may be armoured or braided, with or without metallic screen, depending on different applications.

The FIREGUARD cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
IEC 60332-1
IEC 60332-3C




Fire Retardant PVC Sheathed Cables (FIREGUARD)
Flame Retardant Coaxial Cables
The cables are designed for CCTV, security, smoke detection and evacuation monitoring
applications, where continued functionality is required during a fire situation. Due to the zero halogen
low smoke construction, this cable is ideal for use in public, commercial and industrial environments.
Basic design adapted to MIL-C-17
Conductors: Copper clad steel, solid according to IEC(EN) 60228 class 1.
Insulation: PE compound.
Overall Screen: Plain copper wire braid
Outer Sheath: Thermoplastic PVC compound. UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance,
anti rodent and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance
standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the
PVC compound and the overall cable design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
Temperature range during operation (fixed state): -30°C - +70°C
Temperature range during installation (mobile state): -5ºC - +60ºC
Minimum bending radius: 8 x Overall Diameter
