Riser Armored Fiber Cable

Riser Armored Fiber Cable

Interlocked Riser Armored Fiber Optic Cable provides for an extremely well protected cable package ideally suited for harsh environments. The riser armored fiber cable design offers the system designer a product that can be installed in high traffic areas where added mechanical protection and security are required. Flexible interlocked riser armored cable is also popular for retrofit applications and eliminates the need to install rigid conduit while still meeting building code guidelines.

As designated by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), this name is used for interior fiber-optic cables which contain electrically conductive components, and which are certified for use in riser applications; they are engineered to prevent the spread of fire from floor to floor in a building. Typically they are tested for compliance with ANSI/UL 1666-1997, Standard Test for Flame Propagation Height of Electrical and Optical-Fiber Cable Installed Vertically in Shafts. NFPA NEC 2005 Art 770.51(B) FPN.

They are distinct from optical fiber, conductive, plenum cable (OFCP), and general-purpose optical cable.

OFCR cables can not be installed in plenum areas since they do not have the required fire and smoking rating as Plenum rated cables. OFCP plenum cables can be used as substitutes for OFCR cables.
