BS6387 CWZ

Prysmian FP400 is an armoured, fire resistant power cable for safety circuits associated with fire detection, fire alarm and emergency lighting. FP400 maintains circuit integrity during BS6387 CWZ fire test and produces very low levels of smoke and virtually no acidic gases.

Prysmian FP400 handles like a standard armoured cable and can be installed just as easily. No special tools or accessories are needed to install or terminate FP400 and it is suitable for indoor or outdoor use and may be installed as direct burial, trough, fixed direct, tray or ladder.

Prysmian FP400 is the original fire resistant armoured cable providing an easy to install and terminate, robust fire resistant cable and wiring system. In addition to maintaining circuit integrity during a fire, Prysmian FP400 produces very low levels of smoke and virtually no (less than 0.5%) acidic gases, thus safeguarding human life and protecting equipment.

Prysmian FP400 Rail Cable - Standard Resistant Armoured Cable Features:

  • 600/1000v
  • BS7846 F2
  • Use for BS8519 category 1 control circuits 
  • BASEC Approved 
  • LPCB Approved 
  • London Underground approved LU 1-085A  (Previously 'Section 12')
  • Low smoke, zero halogen, flame retardant

Prysmian FP400 handles like a standard armoured cable and can be installed just as easily. No special installation or jointing tools or accessories are needed for installation or termination of Prysmian FP400, which ensures that substantial installation cost savings, compared with MICC, can be achieved through its use.

Prysmian FP400 is suitable for indoor or outdoor installation requiring a robust fire resistant armoured cable, including direct burial, trough, fixed direct, tray or ladder.

Prysmian FP400 complies with BS7846 Category F2 which ensures that it complies with the requirements for "protected power circuits" given in the 2000 edition of Approved Document B Fire Safety of the Building Regulations 2000.

Witnessed ad-hoc tests have demonstrated the ability of FP400 to achieve fire resistant properties in excess of those required by BS6387 Category CWZ and on the basis of these tests Prysmian FP400 has been approved for many projects where previously only MICC had been approved.

Additional Tests have demonstrated the ability of FP400 to achieve a 60 minute rating (PH60) to BS EN50200 and a 30 minute rating to BS8434-1. These FP cable tests demonstrate that FP400 also meets the requirements for use in "standard" installations in accordance with BS5839-1:2002 for fire detection and alarm systems, and "Cables with inherently high resistance to attack by fire" in accordance with BS5266-1:2005 for emergency lighting.

Prysmian FP400 may be considered as a low smoke armoured cable to BS6724 for the purposes of installation and should be installed in accordance with BS7671/IEE Wiring Regulations or any other appropriate national regulations.

Although standard armour cable fixings and glands may be used, it is important to ensure that, when the cable is required to maintain circuit integrity in a fire, any fixing used to support the cable can also withstand that fire, The use of appropriate BICON cable glands, BICON cable joints and BICON cable cleats are recommended with Prysmian FP400 Fire Resistant Cables.
