Prysmian FP Firefix clips have been used to install the 15,000 metres of Prysmian FP200 Gold and FP Plus supplying and protecting the prestigious Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury. Prysmian FP cables and fixings were used for the fire alarm and emergency lighting system with additional voice evacuation.

The installation began in January 2009 as part of a £3.8 million electrical installation by Darke and Taylor Ltd. The new theatre has replaced the previous Civic Centre Theatre and is expected to welcome 300,000 visitors each year. With this in mind, an extensive fire safety system of the highest standard was required to guarantee the safety of staff and visitors.

Paul McNaughton, Managing Director at Darke and Taylor explains: ‘Prysmian is the preferred cable manufacturer that we like to use at Darke & Taylor as its products offer excellent fire rating values with all necessary third party approvals. As a result, we were pleased with the choice of Prysmian FP200 Gold and Prysmian FP Plus.’

Paul continues, ‘Prysmian FP200 Gold and Prysmian FP Plus are satisfying products to work with as the cables can be terminated and stripped with ease. We also requested additional Prysmian FP Firefix components to secure a speedy installation.’

Prysmian's unique FP Firefix allows FP cables to be installed up to 10 times faster than with AP clips. The 316L stainless steel clip is coated with an intumescent red or white finish and meets the fixing requirements of BS5839-1:2002 and BS5266-1:2011 for fire resistant cables.
