Fire Alarm Cable - FPLR Shielded

Fire Alarm Cable for Your Fire Safety

Be sure to have the correct fire alarm cable to support your fire alarm system. Fire alarm cable is designated by the NEC Article 760 according to its permissible applications. The NEC rates the cable: FPLP, FPLR, or FPL based on the fire alarm cable’s fire reducing characteristics. FPLR shielded fire alarm cable is a power limited riser cable intended for installation in vertical, floor to floor applications, but not in air ducts. FPLR shielded fire alarm cable must pass rigorous testing in order to meet the FPLR designation. The shielding around the conductors will protect it from any electrical noise.
