Cost-effective, fire-resistive cable technology 

15 Sep 2018

Prysmian Group North America announced the launch of its Lifeline MC and Lifeline MC LSZH cable systems. With these new systems, Prysmian provides UL 2196 FHIT Certifications for a cable-and in-conduit solution that is also an armored MC solution. Engineered to withstand temperatures up to 1850°F, Prysmian’s UL 2196-Certified Lifeline products allow emergency circuits within buildings and transportation systems to continue operating for at least two hours in extreme fire conditions. The new Lifeline MC and Lifeline MC LSZH systems will utilize self-contained raceways, in addition to cable-in-conduit, to provide maximum flexibility and cost savings for an array of fire-resistive applications. Prysmian’s Lifeline products employ ceramified silicone technology to safeguard circuits from failure due to fire, providing fire pumps critical power to provide life-saving sprinkler coverage throughout the structure. Powering ventilation, exit lighting, and occupant elevator systems allows first responders to safely evacuate occupants from burning buildings. Prysmian customized its products to meet U.S. building safety codes, which require fire protection methods to ensure circuit integrity of emergency systems.
