Fireproof and fire-resistant cables

In the United Kingdom and in Italy, the fire testing systems are the latest generation ones and the various tests, which are always passed brilliantly and in line with international standards, allow a very high-level production to the satisfaction of the company but above all, of our customers all over the world.

As an innovation-oriented company which works to develop customised conductors and towards seeking the best performance of the cables it manufactures, Tratos has considered it essential to invest in structures for the various safety tests, paying specific attention to the systems that manage the different firefighting tests (tests for voltage, spark, resistance, as well as more extensive tests for elongation, thermal shock, shrinkage and vertical flame).

Tests and measurements are always wide-ranging: they explore the time available to escape from fire (ASET), the area burning rate, backdraught, burning behaviour, char, combustion, deflagration, ease of ignition, fire load density, fire resistance, flame spread, mass and linear burn rates, smoke opacity, oxygen index performance and a great deal more. Tratos structures include a CPR test bench (BS EN 50399), small scale (Bunsen peak test) BS EN 60332-1, large scale vertical propagation BS EN IEC 60332-3, smoke density – 3 m3 BS EN 61034, NBS smoke density chamber, BS EN 60754 acid gas emission, test on gases developed during the combustion of materials, determination of halogen acid gas content, oxygen limit index (LOI) – ASTM D2863 and flammability index (FTI) – ISO 4589-3 (the details underlying the standards).

The fire cables made by Tratos have been tested and certified by: LCPB, UKAS, BASEC, LUR and IMQ.
