FIREGUARD Flame Retardant Cables 

Flame Retardant Power & Control Cables

300/500V PVC Insulated, PVC Sheathed Power Cables (2-5 Cores)

FGD200 05VV-K (CU/PVC/PVC 300/500V Class 5)

BS Code: 3182Y/3183Y/3184Y/3185Y

HAR Code: H05VV-F

Application

The cables are mainly used in power stations, mass transit underground passenger systems, airports, petrochemical plants, hotels, hospitals, and high-rise buildings.

Standards

  • Basic design to BS EN 50525-2-11(formerly BS 6500)

Fire Performance

Flame Retardance (Single Vertical Wire Test) EN 60332-1-2

Voltage Rating

300/500V

Cable Construction

PVC Insulated, PVC Sheathed Power Cables PVC Sheathed Power Cables
Conductor Flexible copper wire according to EN 60228 class 5.
Insulation PVC type TI 2 according to EN 50363-3.
Filling For circular cable having two cores, the space between the cores shall be filled either by separate fillers or by the sheath filling the interstices. For circular cables with three, four or five cores, a centre filler may be used.
Outer Sheath PVC type TM 2 according to EN 50363-4-1. A tape may be applied around the core assembly before application of the sheath.
Sheath Option UV resistance, hydrocarbon resistance, oil resistance, anti rodent and anti termite properties can be offered as option. Compliance to fire performance standard (IEC 60332-1, IEC 60332-3, UL 1581, UL 1666 etc) depends on the oxygen index of the PVC compound and the overall cable design. LSPVC can also be provided upon request.
