Fire Alarm Cable

Fire Alarm - Plenum and Riser Cable

Your fire alarm system is only as strong as its weakest link. Ensure that your fire alarms are supported by quality, certified fire alarm cables. Keep in mind the requirements of the fire alarm installation when making your decision to buy. We offer a large range of alarm cables for three broad categories: plenum, non-plenum, and riser.

What is FPLP Cable?

The plenum fire alarm cable is used in ducts or other enclosed air spaces above the drop ceiling or below the floor. This fire alarm wire is also referred to as FPLP, which stands for "Fire-Power Limited-Power". We supply both shielded and unshielded plenum rated cables for your fire safety. The shielded CMP alarm cable ranges from 12 to 18 guage with two or four solid bare copper connectors and aluminum mylar shielding. Our unshielded plenum fire alarm cables also come in 12, 14, 16, 18 awg and two or four BC conductors.

What is FPLR Cable?

Fire alarm wires that run between floors in non-plenum areas, are shielded or unshielded riser (FPLR) fire alarm cables. We offer Shielded Alarm Cables and Unshielded Alarm Cables for all your different job applications. These FPLR (Fire-Power Limited-Power) rated alarm cables measure 12 AWG, 14 AWG, 16 AWG and 18 AWG with two, four or six solid bare copper conductors. The FPLR wire applications are smoke alarms/detectors, voice communications, microprocessor controlled systems, pull boxes (fire alarm signals), burglar alarms, and other low voltage installations. The fire alarm circuits control and power functions such as safety operations, elevator capture and shutdown, door release, and damper control. Be sure to purchase your cables from us, your reliable cable source.
