Safety first in case of fire
ALSECURE PLUS fire-resistant cable JE-H(St)H certified
Nexans is committed to improving safety in buildings
The safety of human life – whether at work or at home, during free time or receiving health care – is an absolute priority.
Fires in enclosed spaces are usually accompanied by panic and a lack of coordination. Most fire-related deaths are caused by inhalation of the toxic gases produced by fires.
A comprehensive and innovative programme of certified fire-resistant cables helps to protect lives and property in the event of fires. Nexans is committed to enhancing building safety and offers a wide range of fire-resistant cables under the brand name ALSECURE®.
All associated certificates, such as VDE expert opinions with production monitoring or general construction supervision test certificates, can be found in our e-service database or in the data sheets under “Docs and Info”.
These cables with functional integrity are used for emergency exit system power supplies.
Even after a fire has broken out, ALSECURE® cables ensure that safety systems keep on functioning for an adequate period of time (alarms, smoke ventilation systems etc.) so that people still have time to escape. Fire-resistant cables not only reduce smoke density, gas emissions and heat release but can also even prevent the spread of flames.
Current fire protection requirements regarding electrical installations in buildings
In Europe, safety is a major concern. The European Commission has created a special regulation aimed at aligning the classification of construction products: the new European Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
Nexans has published a brochure containing all the most important questions and answers about fire-resistant cables and the CPR. The revised brochure can be requested free of charge.
