nVent Pyrotenax - Fire Performance & Power Cables

Fire Survival - MI Cables - Mineral Insulated - Critical Power - Construction Products Directive

Setting the Standard in Fire Safety!

When designing high-rise residential and complex buildings, engineers need to ensure that all critical equipment and processes maintain operational during an emergency situation like a fire.

Life safety systems need to be in place to minimise damages to the building and emergency processes to be operational, allowing emergency systems and services to protect human lives.

nVent PYROTENAX mineral-insulated (MI) cables provide circuit integrity for power and control circuits of equipment such as:

  • Motor operated valves
  • Fire pumps
  • Fire Alarms
  • Communication systems
  • Emergency lighting
  • Emergency power

nVent PYROTENAX cables meet all performance requirements according to current codes and standards for life safety and firefighting systems and for fire alarm systems.

Due to its mechanical construction from non-combustible materials and inorganic and inherently fire resistant insulation, nVent PYROTENAX MI cables are completely inert and will not contribute to a fire.

The construction consists of non-combustible materials and their inorganic insulation is inherently fire resistant.

During a fire, some polymeric alternatives – despite being approved by today’s fire regulatory framework (BS, IEC) – can still burn, causing smoke and flames to reduce the onsite visibility. Remember that standards always stipulate minimum performance requirements where in some emergency situations only maximum performance counts.

Make no compromises on life safety! nVent PYROTENAX is the safest solution for all types of application, providing complete peace of mind.
