Flame Retardant Low Smoke Electrical Wires
K-Flex Flame Retardant Low Smoke (FRLS) electrical wires are manufactured by using electrolytic grade copper to insure superior conductivity. The Cable has special flame retardant, low smoke emitting and toxic fumes suppressing properties, in addition to the properties required by IS 694 : 1990.
During a fire, ordinary PVC insulated wires give out thick black smoke and toxic fumes of hydrochloric acid gas. This impairs visibility and hampers rescue operations. On the contrary, K-Flex FRLS Cables not only emits very little smoke and toxic gases, but also retards the spread of the fire. It is thus ideal for concealed and conduit wiring in multi-storied high rise buildings such as hotels, banks, hospitals, factories, commercial and residential complexes etc.
Flame Retardant v/s FRLS Electrical Wires
Electrical Safety is a function of five characteristics viz. smoke, hazardours gas generation, rate of heat release, flame spread and rate of burning. In case of fire in a closed space, trapped people are unable to find the exit due to emission of thick black smoke and lose conciousness due to the inhalation of toxic fumes before they can be evacuated to safety.
The advantage of low smoke and low acid gas generation are additional and critical features available with K-Flex FRLS wires in comparison with FR (Flame Resistant) wires which do not provide these properties.
