Prysmian Group is helping to build the cities of the future, today. Our market-leading safety technology is supported by efficient installation and maintenance processes to deliver the latest in performance, flexibility and cost-efficiency.
Cable quality has never been so crucial. We support the construction industry as it searches for new ways to maintain quality of life for urban dwellers. All while enabling efficient installation times and providing effective new safety solutions.
We’re committed to safety.
The performance of cables in a fire is critical. As connectors of a building, poor-quality cables can hasten the spread of fire, putting people and property at risk.
We offer our customers a complete service, meeting not only the technical needs of each project, but suggesting and implementing solutions for increased safety. Our aim is to offer groundbreaking products with superior performance, as well as meeting the highest standards of product safety to prevent and limit the effects of fire.
Limiting the life-threatening effects of fire.
When PVC cables are exposed to flame or extreme temperatures they can release a dangerous combination of acid, gas or toxic smoke. Prysmian’s LS0H cable jacketing is made with thermoplastic or thermoset compounds specially designed to release a very limited amount of smoke, making them ideal for poorly ventilated areas and emergency evacuation routes. And the lack of dangerous hydrogen chloride gas production means risks associated with inhalation or exposure to hydrochloric acid are minimised.
Are you used to the new CPR? On 1 July 2017, CPR (Construction Product Regulation) became mandatory throughout the EU. This regulation defines the rules and requirements of construction products to be manufactured, distributed or installed – cables included.
