Most deaths in fire incidents are caused by people overcome by gas or smoke. The average time from ignition to flashover (when fatalities become possible) has gone from 15 minutes in 1950 to 3 minutes today, simply because we have more plastics where we live and work.
To reduce these risks, safety cables used in electrical installations must:
Reduce smoke and effluent gases to save human lives and facilitate the work of rescue teams
Enable security systems to function during fires, by ensuring the integrity of electrical cables
Prevent silicone-insulated sheaths from burning
Benefit from enhanced fire protection solutions
