Introducing Nexans Envirolex®
As seen in Electrolink July/August 2018 (Issue 127)
Envirolex® cables are designed to ensure safety
Toxic fumes and smoke emissions are the greatest threat to human life in event of fire. Nexans have engineered away to create a safer environment so you can breathe easy.
Envirolex® is an extensive range of flame retardant cables engineered for enhanced performance under fire conditions. These low-smoke, zero-halogen cables have a hard wearing, lead-free, flame retardant sheath that dramatically reduces health risks as well as environmental impact. Envirolex® cables are also non-migratory and suitable for polystyrene applications.
Designed to ensure safer cabling in public places like hospitals, airports, and tunnels, Envirolex® is also designed to support green and sustainable building projects. The cables have a higher performance rating and produce minimal smoke and hazardous fumes than your traditional PVC sheathed cables.
These special properties aid visibility and ensure better air quality in a fire evacuation while greatly reducing damage to electrical and mechanical equipment. The Envirolex® range of cables are manufactured with a unique sheathing compound using a non-PVC HFS-90-TP plastic material, ensuring the cables are PVC-free, flexible in installation, and unlikely to cause corrosive damage to metallic equipment after being doused in a fire.
This range is compliant with AS/NZS 5000 series and flame tested to AS/NZ1660-5.3, 5.4 & 5.6. The Envirolex® 2C+e TPS has a denser, less pliable sheath and is available in 1.5, 2.5, 4 and 6 mm. Envirolex circular power cables are a flexible class 5/6 conductor and come in single and multi-core options with sizing options ranging from 16 mm up to 630 mm in single core, up to 10 mm in 3C+e, and 35mm in 4C+e.
* Low smoke emission for increased visibility during evacuation.
