CPR Construction Products Regulation


The CPR Regulation allows assessing the reaction to fires of construction products throughout the European Union, allows comparing different manufacturers from different countries, verifying how the product is introduced on the market, how its performance is declared and the conformity assessment system. 

All TRATOS products subject to CPR are meticulously tested to meet the requirements of Class C or higher, and most polymeric electrical cables fall into classes B2 to E. Based on the Construction Products and Fire Reaction Regulations, the Tratos®Waveform LSOH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) multicore cable has obtained the B2ca-s1a,d0,a1 classification.

The design of this concentric “neutral earth” conductor offers much simpler connections; de facto, without cutting the cable, the sheath can be removed by virtue of the waveform model, with the result that the wires can be opened to allow the joint to connect to one of the internal power supply cores. Once the connection is complete, the integrity of the outer sheath can be restored with a T-cover for the joint itself.

This Tratos®Waveform design allows DNO installers to pick up supplies without cutting the conductor cores.

Tratos always exceeds the standards and has long since raised the bar of fire safety. For example, the UK plante produced a new cable with higher specifications (CCA) than the standards themselves, thus soliciting the regulator to impose the minimum class (CCA cables reaction to fire performance). In the same factory (Knowsley-Merseyside-UK) the company carries out continuous research activities, implements constant innovation studies and engages in a rigorous regime of independent tests that are constantly in line with the quality of the products.

The end Mission of the Group is the satisfaction of the customers, and therefore… attention to the innovative system, to the concept of quality, and, above all, caring for the total well-being of its engineers and employees have accompanied Tratos in finding a solution for every situation. All this has enabled the achievement of those objectives, that mission and the satisfaction of the purchasing partners.
