FP Talk - BASEC Approval

FP600s Cable BASEC Approval

FP600S Cable - first to get BASEC approval 

FP600S - first to get highest BASEC approval


Prysmian was the first cable manufacturer to add BASEC approval to it's highest performing fire resistant power cable in addition to LPCB approval.
Prysmian’s FP600S enhanced performance fire resistant power cable is now approved by BASEC for compliance with the new highest level F120 category of the recently revised cable standard BS 7846:2009 for armoured, fire resistant 600/1000V cables having low emission of smoke and corrosive gas when affected by fire.
FP600S Cable sets the highest standard in stranded armour cables for protected circuits for emergency electrical services in large or complex buildings, where only the best performing fire resistant power cable can provide the necessary protection.
This higher performing cable was designed specifically to meet the more onerous fire survival requirements being specified by regulators and specifiers for life safety systems, property protection and fire fighting systems that must remain functional in the event of a fire. 
Prysmian marketing manager, Julie Mould comments, “All Prysmian cables are meticulously tested to ensure that they exceed stringent British Standards and not just meet them. Choosing FP600S by Prysmian provides specifiers with the confidence that their cable meets all necessary standards.”
