When faced with aggressive environments and high mechanical stresses, cable manufacturers have traditionally protected their cables with a lead sheath and metal armour that increase the weight of the cable and reduce the installation flexibility.
Prysmian’s AirguardTM avoids these problems
By combining our patented AirbagTM and Drylam® technologies we can supply a high-performance solution reducing cable diameter and weight with an exceptional protection from fluid penetration, chemical aggression and mechanical shocks.
The absence of both lead sheath and metal armour means that AirguardTM has a more compact design and is less rigid, so it is easier to install. Thanks to a reduced diameter, more cable can fit on a standard cable drum, so it is ideal for longer cable lengths and requires fewer splice joints.
The AirguardTM product range includes solutions for Medium Voltage, Low Voltage, Instrumentation and Control cable applications. Therefore, it is an effective alternative to a cable in a conduit system and armoured cables. It can also be used on horizontal and vertical feeders, branch circuits, and general industrial power applications. AirguardTM power cables are UL-approved for installation in tray, raceway, aerial and direct buried environments.
