Low-voltage power cables

  • Low-voltage power cablesThese ≤1KV cables are PVC for tramways, and halogen-free, low smoke and fire-retardant for subways.
  • Generally used for traction, station equipment (lighting, escalator, automatic doors) and tunnels (ventilation).
  • Cables for emergency equipment are also fire-resistant for circuit integrity.

 

These cables are used in the entire Paris underground system and in all Paris tramways, including 60 km of new tram lines to be built around the city circumference and to connect suburban communities through tram-train services.

Low fire hazard cables 1kV
Indoor energy cables/Wires and cables 1kV

Cables are not dangerous on their own, but they may sometimes cause fires resulting from bad or ageing installations, wrong calculations of sections, and poor-quality cables installed, etc

Due to the use of organic materials for insulation and sheathing and their huge volume in buildings, during fires, cables can also severely contribute to:

  • Increased smoke production which limits visibility and inhibits escape
  • Increased carbon monoxide production, the most lethal gas in fires
  • Release of irritant gases

In order to save people and goods from these risks, Nexans offers halogen-free cables which prevent fire propagation and dramatically reduce the emission of smoke and hazardous, acidic, and irritant gases, thus allowing people time to exit safely.

   
Low fire hazard cables <1kV
Indoor energy cables/Wires and cables <1kV

A low level of opacity of smoke produced and acidity of the effluent are basic criteria in the selection of materials that, in the event of fire, make it possible to reduce the presence of dangerous gases and to facilitate escape. It is essential that the production of opaque smoke and harmful emissions is as low as possible during a fire.

Nexans’ offer enables to:

  • Significantly delay the propagation of a fire, thus gaining precious time for evacuation and fire-fighting
  • Reduce to a minimum opaque smoke and acid gases, the prime cause of fire-related deaths, and damage to equipment and structures
  • A wide range fitting the different country regulations, building types and electrical applications.
