- 30Apr2013LS Cable & System developed high-performance fire resistant cables
Capable to supply power and signals for more than three hours to fire fighting facilities during fire, will minimize human and property damages
Demonstrated world-class technological power by obtaining international certifications of IEC, BS and EN
On the 30th, LS Cable & System (CEO & President: Jaeun Koo) announced development of high-performance fire resistant cables to withstand temperature up to 1,000℃ during fire. The new products supply power and signals for more than three hours to fire fighting and prevention facilities, such as emergency power system, fire alarm, sprinkler and poisonous gas ventilator, in order to allow for people to evacuate from buildings and facilities in the event of fire.
The existing fire resistant cables withstand temperature up to 750℃. However, the new products are developed to withstand extreme conditions, such as physical impact caused by collapse of a building and water spray for fire extinguishing, under the high temperature of 830℃ – 1,000℃. The products ensure stable operation of fire fighting and prevention facilities during fire, and thus keep human and property damages to the minimum.
Since the first development of fire resistant cables applied to ships and offshore plants in June last year, LS Cable & System has been continuously engaged in R&D and, as a result, additionally developed fire resistant cable for buildings and infrastructures (airport, tunnel and subway line), silicon-insulated fire resistant cable and fire resistant optical fiber cable.
The silicon-insulated cable facilitates cable spreading operation as the cable flexibility is improved with the insulation layer made with silicon. The fire resistant optical fiber cable ensures successful communication and emergency system operation even in the event of fire. Having implemented a line of fire resistant cable products as such, LS Cable & System can provide cable solutions to satisfy diverse customers’ needs and environments.
In addition, LS Cable & System has been acknowledged of its world-class technological power by obtaining all of the strict international standard certifications, the IEC (International Engineering Consortium), the BS (British Standards) and the EN (European Standards).
LS Cable & System Executive Vice President Wangi Park said, “As certification for development and quality of our fire resistant cable products has been completed, we will perform marketing activities more enthusiastically targeting domestic and overseas shipbuilding and offshore plants and construction companies.”
