Caledonian fireflix Cables
fireflix 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/silicone rubber as insulation
4. LSZH/Flame retardant RPVC as sheath
fireflix cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material can be elastomeric (EPR, SR), 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 fireflix cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
Fire Resistant offshore & Marine Cables (BS 6883&BS7917)
LV Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables
0.6/1kV HF-EPR Insulated, SW2/SW4 Sheathed Unarmoured
These fire resistant elastomeric insulated cables are designed for fixed wiring in ships and on mobile offshore units, suitable for use in power and control applications where fire integrity is essential.
