Cable life extension through the use of fire protective cable coating.

Are your cables damaged by mechanical stress or environmental influence?

Cable lifetime extension is the cost effective solution to premature aging of electrical cables. Changing or rerouting the cables is a costly operation so why not choose Fire Security to execute the repair of damaged cables and protect them from fire, smoke, mud, UV, ozone and chemical damage for many years to come.

The main benefits of Cable Coating from Fire Security:

1. Taking care of the cables ability to function.

FS cable coatings have a very high insulation value and dielectric strength. This ensures that the electric safety is upgraded and improved and that the working capabilities of the cables are maintained.

2. Upgrading the cables to meet today’s safety standards.

FS coated cables are upgraded to meet today’s stringent standards with regards to toxicity, smoke emission, smoke toxicity, flame spread and fire resistance.

3. Minimizing detrimental effects on the installation.

The application of the FS coating is done while the cables and your installation are operational.

4. Tripled cable life expectancy with FS5.

Based on experience we can estimate that FS5 coating can double or triple the cable life.

FS can repair and extend the lifetime of your electrical cables.
