What are fire performance cables?

Fire performance cables are designed to maintain circuit integrity and functionality even in the presence of fire. Unlike standard cables, fire performance cables are built and designed to withstand the extreme heat, flames, and smoke generated by a fire and maintain essential services during a fire emergency. These cables play a crucial role in providing uninterrupted power supply to emergency systems, allowing crucial services such as fire alarms, emergency lighting, and evacuation systems to function during a fire incident.

Our innovative fire performance cable solutions; NoBurn

Ventcroft's fire performance cables, NoBurn, come with a host of features and benefits that set them apart from conventional cables. These cables are constructed using advanced materials and manufacturing techniques to deliver superior fire resistance. Key features include:
  • Fire Resistance: Ventcroft cables are designed to withstand high temperatures for extended periods, ensuring continuity of power and communication during critical situations.
  • Low Smoke and Fume Emission: The low smoke and fume emission properties of Ventcroft cables minimise visibility impairment and potential health hazards during a fire, facilitating safe evacuation.
  • Enhanced Durability: Ventcroft fire performance cables are engineered to be highly durable, offering excellent resistance to mechanical damage and environmental factors, such as moisture and chemicals.
  • Easy Installation: Ventcroft's cables are designed for ease of installation, ensuring efficient and hassle-free deployment in various applications.
  • Fast termination: The NoBurn fire cables can be prepared for termination in under 10 seconds
No other fire cables offer better working flexibility or are so easily ‘dressed’ - NoBurn cables stay where you put them whether in a fixed line or shaped to building contours.
