Bulk Security Cable for Security Alarm System Installations

Plenum Security cables are multi-conductor cables used for wiring security alarm systems. Make sure to verify building codes before buying security alarm cable so you order the appropriate jacket type. Typical applications include: security systems, intercom systems, door alarms, card readers, power-limited controls, and sound/audio systems. The security cables can be used in commercial security systems and residential security systems, stadiums, arenas, airports, train stations and more.

Plenum Security cable

When wiring is run through environmental airflow spaces, your project will require cable with a CMP rated jacket. This 22/8 Plenum Security Alarm Cable has eight 22 gauge stranded copper conductors. It comes with eight 7-strand conductors and unshielded Plenum CMP Rated white colored jacket, made in the USA. We sell these alarm cables in increments of 1,000 ft.

Why Plenum?

A plenum space is the open area above the drop ceiling or below the floor that is used for air circulation in buildings. This could be a problem if there is ever a fire. Using non-plenum cables in a plenum space can spread fire and toxic smoke throughout a building. Plenum cable uses a flame-retardant jacket that is made of special plastics to prevent the release of harmful smoke. Plenum cable is mostly used in commercial applications such as schools and hospital buildings that house a large population of people. It also is required in most multi-floor business buildings with large plenum space areas.
