FIRE ALARM CABLE

Fire alarm cables are used for a variety of life safety devices and are required to comply with many codes and standards. Fire alarm cables provide full compliance to NEC Article 760, NEC Article 725, FPLR, FPLP and CL3P. Shielded and non-shielded versions are offered for a wide range of conductor counts and gauges.

Rados supply fire alarm cables in both non-shielded and shielded types. The most popular non-shielded fire alarm cables are available in 2 core or 4 core with rip cord included. However, the best accepted fire alarm cables are 2 core and 4 core shielded aluminum foil wrapped with tinned copper drain wire.  These can be with or without rip cord. Fire alarm cables with even more cores are subject to customization.
