Fire Alarm Installation

There are many uses for a fire alarm cable such as smoke alarms, smoke detectors, voice communications, siren alarms, fire alarm control panels, pull boxes, burglar alarms, and other fire alarm protection systems. Fire alarm circuits control and power various applications, including safety functions, elevator capture and shutdown, door release mechanisms, and damper control.

Fire System Products

We offer a diverse selection of fire alarm cables, including shielded and unshielded varieties in Plenum, Non-Plenum, and Riser configurations, featuring FPLP and FPLR ratings, and solid bare copper conductors ranging from 18 AWG to 12 AWG. These cables are designed to be flexible for effortless installation. With our unwavering dedication to quality and reliability, our cables are UL and ETL Listed, as well as RoHS Compliant. Plenum-rated alarm cables are suitable for installation in the space between floors, typically used as duct areas or other air spaces. The term "Plenum" refers to the jacket material of the cable, which exhibits lower burn characteristics compared to 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.
