Caledonian FIRETOX Cables
FIRETOX cables are constructed in the following typical design:
1. Solid/stranded annealed copper conductor
2. XLPE/LSZH as insulation
4. LSZH/flame retardant LSFROH as sheath
FIRETOX cables are offered in either single core, multicore or multi-pair constructions.
The insulation material can be thermosetting (XLPE, LSZH) or thermoplastic (EVA, LSZH) to meet different stringent environment requirement. The cables may be armoured or braided, with or without metallic screen, depending on different applications.
The FIRETOX cables manufactured by Caledonian comply with either one or combination of the following standards.
Fire Retardant PVC Sheathed Cables (FIRETOX)
Flame Retardant Instrumentation Cables
Flame Retardant Overall Screened Instrumentation Cables (Multicore)
The LSZH versions (Part 1 Type 1&2) cables are generally use for indoor installation and suitable
for wet and damp areas. Generally used within industrial process manufacturing plants for
communication, data and voice transmission signals and services, Also used for the interconnection
of electrical equipment and instruments, the LSZH sheath can reduce toxic smoke and fume
