Fire Safety

Fire safety starts with cables.

​​​​​​Electrical cables can warrant the supply of energy and the transmission of information.

The main cause of casualties in indoor fire are smoke and hazardous emissions which significantly reduce the chance to escape and extend the damage to goods far behind the burned area. The contribution of cables is key both in active and passive protection. Electrical cables can warrant the supply of energy and the transmission of information. They can contribute to improve the time to escape the fire.

Cables are not dangerous on their own if adapted for the scope and correctly installed but present everywhere in large quantities.

  • Omniprésence : Cables - like pipes and air conditioning conduits - are everywhere around us, and most of the time not visible once they are installed. They link rooms and floors and go through the walls without interruption. In the event of a fire, cables can therefore be a vector of propagation of fire.


  • Large quantity : The sheer volume of cables in modern buildings due to the rapid technological evolution (electrical appliances, telephones, computer connections…) can be astonishing. In many office and shopping centres, new cables are added, to upgraded IT networks or new electrical security standards. All theses cables represent a significant quantity of fuel for fire.


Regulators, architects, engineering offices, contractors, wholesalers, cables manufacturers, etc. everyone should play an active role in the use of fire safety cables.
