Fire Alarm Cable Products

We offer a variety of shielded and unshielded Plenum, Non-Plenum, and Riser fire alarm cables, including FPLP and FPLR, with solid bare copper conductors ranging from 18 AWG to 12 AWG. These fire cables are flexible for easy installation. With our commitment to quality and dependability, our cables are UL, ETL Listed, and RoHS Compliant. Plenum-rated fire cables can be run in the area between floors, such as duct areas or other air spaces. Plenum refers to the material used in the jacket of the cable, which burns less than non-plenum cables.

Why Plenum?

A plenum space is an 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 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.
