Fire protection for cables and cable trays: effective measures to prevent cable fires

Cable systems are found in all buildings nowadays: from industrial plants via power stations to office buildings. The large number of cable support systems run concealed in cable tunnels behind wall and floor coverings.

Electrical lines can ignite themselves due to overheating or a short-circuit or they can be set alight by the external influence of fire or heat. The mostly combustible cable sheaths and insulation allow a fire to spread along the cable at rapid speed.

Our tested solutions for cable fire protection can delay the spread of fire in order to minimise the damage sustained.

Fire protection solutions to protect cable systems: protection tailored to your requirements

Effective protection of cable systems around the world: our tried-and-tested FLAMMOTECT-A and DG-CR 0.7 products are successfully used to protect cables in high-rise buildings, industrial buildings, and offshore facilities as well as in sensitive areas, such as hospitals, airports, production facilities, power stations, and substation or nuclear facilities. FLAMMOTECT-A fire protection coating and DG-CR 0.7 fire protection tape are highly resistant and form a reliable protective shield around the cable. In addition to fire protection, these solutions enhance the resistance of cables to environmental influences, such as UV radiation, salt water, oil, and other chemicals.
