“At Nexans, we believe that everyone has a role to play in the sustainable electrification of the world”, says Elyette Roux, Chief Sales & Marketing, Communications Officer at Nexans. “By closely working with the construction industry across the entire value chain – from regulators and engineering offices, to architects and system designers, to developers, and to contractors, installers and electricians, also through distributors and retailers,– we aim to create smart innovative solutions that improve security of people and assets across the globe by addressing the risks together with our partners and customers.”

Saving lives and securing assets with state-of-the-art cable technology

With Nexans Fire Safety, the Group aims to help its partners and customers bring their safety standards to the next level, taking a step ahead on the existing practices with the industry-leading innovation.

Designed in the Group’s Innovation Center AmpaCity in France, within Nexans specialized Fire Lab,  Nexans fire-resistant ALSECURE® cables maintain electrical circuit integrity up to two hours. These cables are crucial to saving lives by allowing critical systems (such as emergency lighting, fire detection, warning systems, automatic doors, etc.) to function even in the event of a fire and facilitating a fast and secure evacuation. In parallel, Nexans low fire-hazard ENVIROLEX® cable range allows to slow down fire spread and reduce potential flaming droplets, thus providing more time to escape, as well as a safer environment for rescue teams. Above all, these cables aim at limiting smoke release and acidity of emissions, as smoke inhalation is the most critical factor, being responsible for 80% of fire-related deaths.
