    Applications

    Our Bulk Security Alarm Cables, also known as alarm wire, has been designed to meet the installation requirements for alarm systems. This plenum alarm cable features two 18 guage bare copper 7 strand conductors. It is supplied with a low smoke CMP jacket for fire safety. This USA made security cable is constructed to be installed with security systems, intercom systems, power-limited controls and sound/audio systems.

    Product Quality

    Primus Cable stock a wide variety of high quality alarm cables to meet all your needs. Our bulk security cables come with both riser and plenum rated jacket. Be sure to check the building code requirements before purchasing alarm cable. The alarm cable also include print legends to allow for quick identification of each cable’s application. Time is precious and the convenience of the cables at installation makes our security alarm cables the choice for multiple applications.

    Where to use Plenum Security Alarm Cable

    A broad range of applications exist for bulk plenum security alarm cabling. It is widely used with security systems, intercom systems, sound/audio systems, and power-limited controls in commercial settings such as schools, universities, hospitals, airports, government buildings, train and transportation centers, stadiums, and arenas. Since this security cable has multiple conductors under one jacket, the preparation, set up, and termination time is shorter.

    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.
