FIRE-RESISTANT CABLES FORM PART OF THE EMERGENCY AND ESSENTIAL BUILDING SERVICE SYSTEMS REQUIRED TO OPERATE IN THE EVENT OF FIRE... Prysmian continues to lead the way with the FP range of products
F or some time now, the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) has specified FP Plus on all developments at Dublin Airport, using extensive quantities in the Terminal 2 Building and on an ongoing basis as development and upgrading continues at Terminal 1 and other buildings in the Airport Campus. Other projects completed to date and some which are still ongoing, all specify FP Performance cables. These include Fibonacci Square (Facebook Headquarters in Dublin), Coopers Cross Residential and Commercial, Amazon, and Linkedin in the capital, to name but a few. Why is the FP range in demand? According to Cathal Grace, Sales Director at Precision Cables: “Safety is the number one reason we hear from contractors. There is a big emphasis on using good quality cables, so when specifying cables for life safety, most try to specify Prysmian as the quality is second to none.” “Our customers need to ensure they have 100% faith in the quality of the cable and confidence in the manufacturer,” he continued. “Our cables have been analysed in real construction projects.

FP200 Gold is BASEC and LCPB approved, and has excellent data and signal transmission characteristics, which make it ideal for addressable systems. Equally, FP Plus is the first choice for ‘Enhanced’ fire-resistant cable.
