FIRE PERFORMANCE NEWS

with cables insulated with just soft silicone. Construction sites are busy places and after first fix, vital cables can be accidently damaged by other trades or even materials mishandling. FP Product Manager Simon Hopkins explains the advantages Insudite™ brings: “Installers tell us that toughness and durability is essential for any cable as there is potential for third party damage during installation. Weak insulation can be easily compromised before and after installation, resulting in delayed commissioning, system handover or costly rework. Faults can be notoriously diffi cult to locate within a cable network and may even cause false alarms in the future. Insudite™ mitigates these risks.”
 

Prysmian’s tests show how strong Insudite™ is. They test for abrasion, puncture, cut through and blunt impact. All tests show Insudite™ to have significantly greater damage resistance than soft silicone.
