Caledonian FIRETOX Cables
FIRETOX cables are constructed in the following typical design:
1. Solid/stranded annealed copper conductor
2. XLPE/LSZH as insulation
4. LSZH/flame retardant LSFROH as sheath
FIRETOX cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material can be thermosetting (XLPE, LSZH) or thermoplastic (EVA, LSZH) to meet different stringent environment requirement. The cables may be armoured or braided, with or without metallic screen, depending on different applications.
The FIRETOX cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
Fire Retardant PVC Sheathed Cables (FIRETOX)
Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables
450/750V XLPE Insulated, LSZH Sheathed, Screened Power Cables (2-4 Cores)
The cables are mainly used in power stations, mass transit underground passenger systems,
airports, petrochemical plants, hotels, hospitals, and high-rise buildings.
