What is FS Cable Fire Protection

FS specializes in Class Approved passive fire protection of electrical cables by way of cable coating. Our applications can be completed on live cables with no disruption to your operations.

The IEC 60331 standard fire-resistant cable can withstand only 830° C (1526° F) in a fire situation, while FS coated cables can survive a hydrocarbon fire of 1100° C (2012° F) for up to 60 minutes – without any problem to the insulation or the electrical properties of the cable.

FS manufactures an intumescent coating system designed for internal or partially sheltered applications and an ablative coating system for internal and external applications.

Both coating systems are tested to meet the IEC Publication 60331 and 60332 requirements and are additionally tested to Hydrocarbon Fire Curve of 1100° Celsius for a minimum of 60 minutes. Our intumescent coating system is also tested fire resistant for up to 3 hours at 830° Celsius.
