FRLS - Multistrand

XTRA GARD - FRLS has special flame retardant, low smoke emitting and toxic fumes suppressing properties, in addition to the properties required by IS-694:1990. 0.75 Sq mm to 95.0 Sq mm FR Multistrand Cables - House Gard - FR. In the case of fire, conventional PVC insulated wires give out thick black smoke and toxic fumes of hydrochloric acid gas. This impairs visibility and hampers rescue operation. Xtra Gard on the contrary, not only emits very little smoke and toxic gases, but also retards the spreading of fire. It is thus ideal of concealed and conduit wiring in multi-storied high rise buildings such as hotels, banks, hospitals, factories, commercial complexes and residential apartments etc. Range of FRLS Multistrand Cables - Xtra Gard 1.0 Sq mm to 6.0 Sq mm FRLS Multistrand Cables - Xtra Gard
