This is the ‘new generation version of the Prysmian FP Plus™ cable featuring Insudite™ insulation.
The Prysmian FP PLUS™ is highly durable and dressable, easy to terminate and install fire resistant cable, using an enhanced variant of the unique InsuditeTM damage resistant insulation system. It brings to the market for the first time an enhanced fire alarm cable with the unmatched combination of rigidity and ease of bending associated with the market leading FP200 Gold® cable.
New generation FP PLUS™ sets previously unobtainable levels in ease of installation for an enhanced cable whilst maintaining full compliance with all the necessary test requirements.
The FP PLUS™ also has excellent data/signal transmission characteristics making it ideal for voice alarm, addressable and networked systems.
Prysmian FP Plus™ Cable Approvals
Approved for fire detection and fire alarm critical signal paths in BS5839-1:2002 enhanced application areas, voice alarm systems to BS5839-8:1998 (Amd 2006) and emergency lighting systems to BS5266-1:2005.
In addition to approvals to BS7629-1 and BS6387 Category CWZ, FP PLUSTM has received BASEC and LPCB approval to BS5839-1:2002 for enhanced applications. This includes approval to EN50200 Class PH120 and the new integrated fire, shock and water test BS8434-2 for 120 minutes. All Prysmian FP PLUSTM cables are manufactured under an ISO 9001 Quality System certified by BASEC and LPCB.
Prysmian FP Plus Installation
In accordance with BS5839-1 and BS5266-1 requirements, cables must be supported by a fixing that can withstand the same fire conditions as the cable. To meet this requirement the use of Prysmian AP LSOH® coated metal P-clips or the new FP FirefixTM rapid fixing system is recommended. FP PLUSTM should be installed in accordance with BS7671/IET or Wiring Regulations and/or any other appropriate national regulations or codes. For outdoor installation use white sheathed cable, red sheath requires additional suitable UV protection. Ideal for surface, tray, direct burial in plaster or other methods that benefit from a dressable product.
