Prysmian FP100 is the original fire resistant single core cable for use
in metal conduits or trunking to achieve a highly robust fire resistant
wiring system. It maintains circuit integrity during a fire both when
tested in free air or in a metallic conduit. When burnt, it produces
very low levels of smoke and virtually no (less than 0.5%) acidic gases,
thus safeguarding human life and protecting equipment.
®
Through the use of a dual layer insulation system, FP100 offers fire
resistance combined with abrasion and damage resistance, making it
an excellent choice both for upgrading existing conduit based systems
to current essential safety circuit standards or new installations.
Systems based upon standard pvc cables, even when protected
by metal conduit, have been shown to fail within minutes in a fire.
Therefore they are no longer permitted by BS5839-1 or BS5266-1
for fire alarm or emergency lighting systems, as they do not ensure
prolonged operation in the event of a fire.

Prysmian FP100 is Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) listed
as a fire resistant cable. The LPCB range approval is given on the basis
of (i) satisfactory testing at an enhanced voltage of 600/1000V to
BS6387 category CWZ when tested in steel conduit and the conduit is
considered as the metallic layer required by BS6387, for those sizes
capable of fitting within the test conduit, and (ii) satisfactory testing
to IEC60331-21 at an enhanced temperature of 950°C for those
sizes too large to fit in the test conduit.
®
Additional tests have demonstrated the ability of FP100 to achieve a
120 minute rating (PH120) to BS EN50200 and a 120 minute rating to
BS8434-2 when tested in a steel conduit. These tests demonstrate the
ability of FP100 to meet the fire resistance requirements necessary
for use in "enhanced" installations in accordance with BS5839-1:2002
and "Cable systems with an inherently high resistance to attack by
fire" in accordance with BS5266-1:2005.

®
Prysmian FP100 cables are manufactured under an ISO9001 Quality
Management System certified by BASEC and LPCB.

Prysmian FP100 may be considered as a low smoke conduit wire
to BS7211 for the purposes of installation, and should be installed
in accordance with BS7671/IEE Wiring Regulations, or any other
appropriate national regulations. It is suitable for installation in
surface mounted or embedded conduits and trunking, or other similar
fixed protected installations. For surface systems, the use of a metallic
conduit or trunking is recommended to ensure integrity of the system
in the event of fire. For fully embedded systems protected by a non
combustible layer, non metallic conduit or trunking may be used.
