Prysmian FP200 Gold and Prysmian FP Plus fire resistant cables have been installed in Booths Food Store, a family owned supermarket chain within the MediaCityUK site at Salford Quays. The £1.2 million shop includes a café and the first food store for the development in Manchester. MediaCityUK is the new home for BBC North, a new multi-million pound studios facility, a new campus for the University of Salford and over 60 small businesses.

MediaCityUK is a 200 acre site, caters for thousands of people on a daily basis and safety is of paramount importance for the development’s only food store. Consequently, Prysmian FP200 Gold has been used for the fire alarm system and Prysmian FP Plus for the disabled refuge in the shop and café area.

Prysmian’s FP Plus with enhanced Insudite insulation provides an unmatched combination of rigidity and flexibility that is already well established with the market leading Prysmian FP200 Gold and FP Plus cables. Prysmian FP fire resistant cables comply with fire alarm standard, BS 5839 and the emergency lighting standard, BS 5266 as “standard” and “enhanced” fire resistant cable. In addition, Prysmian FP200 Gold and Prysmian FP Plus has received BASEC and LPCB approval and both incorporate Prysmian’s unique Insudite, which greatly reduces the risk of third party damage.

Solid State Security carried out the work and Lead Engineer Mark Mather explains: “FP200 Gold and FP Plus fire resistant cables were specified for this project due to the products all-round quality and the fact that they have all necessary third party approvals.”

Prysmian FP200 Gold and FP Plus Fire Resistant Cable Key Applications
Prysmian FP200 Gold Fire Resistant Cables
  • Fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings
  • Voice alarm systems
  • Emergency voice communication
  • Emergency and escape lighting
  • Other essential service control circuits for ‘standard’ fire resistance 
FP Plus Fire Resistant Cables
  • Fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings
  • Voice alarm systems
  • Emergency lighting
  • Other essential service circuits 


Mark continues: “The Prysmian FP cable can be stripped with ease, enabling the installation process to be quick and efficient. My team particularly like the added benefit of the easy-to-carry reels as the handle allows us to get the cable on site with improved speed.”

Solid State Security began the installation in May and completed the project in October 2011. The Booths family have owned and developed the business through fi ve generations, from one small shop to twentyeight across the country. The brand new two-storey store at MediaCityUK provides customers with a wide choice of locally sourced food and drink.
