This eliminates the festooning you get with some pliable cables too. Does FP Gold pass tests on one sample? What is the meaning of the CWZ test?
BS contains a set of separate fire, water and shock tests and the highest grade is CWZ. Can FP cables be joined? If jointing is unavoidable then a fire resistant box containing ceramic connectors should be used. What clips are required for FP Gold? The clip is made from non-rusting stainless steel with a LS0H powder coating. The tool uses gas nailing technology to fix the clip securely onto a wide range of materials including concrete, steel, composite steel decking, masonry and block work.
Aluminium and plastic clips can easily melt or burn during a fire and the cable may collapse. What glands are required? Prysmian nylon glands are recommended for general installations. The gland is not part of the fire resistant cable support but is recommended to reduce the ingress of airborne dust particles. Brass or steel glands may be also used.
What is the maximum operating temperature of FP Gold? Can FP Gold be used at higher temperatures? What lengths are available for FP Gold? Other lengths need to be made to special order please contact us for prices, lead time and minimum quantity. What colours are available? The standard colours are Red and White but other colours are available, including colour matches to special order, contact us for prices, lead time and minimum quantity.
Can FP Gold be installed in conduit? Yes, with care however, we recommend FP Flex as it has been designed for that purpose. Is FP Gold rodent-proof? No - Rodent damage can only be prevented by using mechanically robust protection, such as steel conduit or trunking. Armouring or Nylon jacketing could reduce the effect of rodent attack but cannot safeguard against attack over time.
No standards currently exist that cable or systems could meet that eliminate rodent attack. We do not promote any of our cable products as rodent proof however, FP Gold is a tough cable and experience has shown that it is resistant to rodent attack. We have received no reports of damage to cables in service, even when installed in areas where other cables have been attacked. Does FP Gold require segregation?
However BS does not allow any fire alarm cable to be installed in the same conduit or common trunking unless in its own compartment as any other cables. The fire alarm equipment manufacturer may also recommend separation of cables to minimise electromagnetic interference. What clip spacing is required? Recommended clip spacings are given in our brochure and are generally mm horizontal and mm vertical installation.
What is the life expectancy of FP cables? All fixed wiring cables including FP have a minimum design life in excess of 20 years and we expect them to last well in excess of that under normal operating conditions.
Cables are subject to the standard guarantee as given in the Prysmian Terms and Conditions of sale. Are ferrules required for FP Gold? No - Prysmian replaced silicone rubber with Insudite in and Insudite is a tough, resilient composite material developed by Prysmian - ferrules are not needed. Is FP Gold suitable for outside installations? For external installation with exposure to UV, we recommend white or black sheathed FP.
Do not use red sheathed FP outside without additional protection. Disclaimer: The information given in this document is believed to be correct at the time of loading but may be subject to change.
