Pirelli to Prysmian - About FP Cables
Prysmian continues to be the first name in cables since Pirelli transferred ownership to them in 2005. The FP range of fire resistant cables has been the market leader for over 30 years and continues to be the number one fire performance cable.
British Standard Codes of Practice have been developed to help designers and installers meet the requirements of Building Regulations for safety in the event of fire, this is where Prysmian’s FP leads the way. The Standards call for fire resistant cables to ‘standard’ performance or ‘enhanced’ performance and Prysmian’s FP range meets these requirements and has LPCB and BASEC approval to support them.
The fire resistant FP Range includes conduit wire, small wiring cables through to large armoured power cables for life safety and fire fighting systems. Each cable resulting from our engineer’s independent development long before there was even a BS to define materials and construction: all part of our part of long term development of the next generation of products for property protection and life safety.
