FP sets pole for Silverstone

Prysmian FP600S and FP400 fire resistant cables have been installed in the fire alarm system at the world famous Silverstone circuit in Northampton. The installation was completed just in time for the 2011 Formula One Santander British Grand Prix, part of the multi million pound redevelopment of the pit and paddock facility.

Electrical work began in May last year and the project reached completion in May 2011. Project Engineer at NG Bailey Building Services, Kevin Dunne explains: ‘Prysmian were the natural choice for us due to their renowned reputation and their FP cable’s ease of use during the installation process. When undertaking a high profi le project like this, safety is paramount and we were required to select the highest quality cables available to ensure optimum fire protection.”

Prysmian’s FP600S and FP400 are BASEC approved and exceed fire test expectations. FP400 is approved to BS7846 category F2 and by LPCB as a fire resistant cable approved to BS6387 CWZ. FP600S is BS7846 category F120 certifi ed and remains entirely operational during the fi re test described in BS8519 and BS8491.

Silverstone Circuit is owned by the British Racing Drivers’ Club and caters for thousands of motorsports fans each year. The circuit held its fi rst race in 1948 and has become the ‘The Home of British Racing’ ever since, the British Grand Prix being held every year at the track since 1987.
