Tratos is pleased to announce its Tratos FIRESAFE TW950e cables have been approved to London Underground Limited (LUL) standard 1-085 A3 and are now authorised for use in sub surface locations, including tunnels and underground stations.
Tratos FIRESAFE TW950e is an enhanced fire resistant cable for systems needing to operate fully during a fire for longer periods than those normally required for single phase evacuation; these include fire detection, alarm and emergency voice communication systems.
Commenting on this latest development, John Light, Director of Tratos Ltd., states: “achieving compliance with this LUL standard is a significant achievement as the tests are rigorous and stringent, as they should be for a potentially life-saving product. Organisations the world over recognise this LUL standard as a benchmark for fire safety.”
In addition to sub surface locations, Tratos Firesafe is also suitable for use in high rise buildings that do not have sprinkler systems and have passed evacuation arrangements, or large premises where areas remote from the fire could remain occupied on the condition the fire does not damage cables serving the alarm system in those locations.
