The design of coaxial cables that meet compliance with European Construction Products Regulation includes fire safety requirements.
RFS is the only company in Europe offering a wide range of coaxial products complying with the highest fire protection classifications according to CPR.
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has announced the world’s first 1 5/8” radiating cable to achieve the top CPR classification. European Commission Construction Products Regulation (CPR) provides a common safety standard for fixed cables in buildings of all kinds. The regulation makes it easier for product purchasers to compare different suppliers in different countries and to ensure that the products comply with the strict fire safety standards.
RFS offers premium cables for the highest possible fire protection classification as well as those for less demanding applications. This includes its 1 5/8” RADIAFLEX cable with the option of a CPR compliant jacket which will be commercially available in January 2019. It is the only product of this specification to achieve the highest CPR class - B2ca s1 d0 a1. It is the world’s first and only cable meeting the most stringent requirements on fire safety, including zero droplets (d0).
Since 2017, RFS has committed to extending its portfolio of CPR Products with the following products now also certified as B2ca s1 d0 a1, the highest possible classification and sub-classification for coaxial cable. Those cables include 1/2" CELLFLEX Superflexible Foam-Dielectric Coaxial, 1/2" CELLFLEX Low-Loss Foam-Dielectric Coaxial, and 7/8" CELLFLEX Premium Attenuation Low-Loss Foam-Dielectric Coaxial.
The cables provide contoured RF coverage, providing exceptional results in even the toughest environments without compromising on safety. RFS is one of the only providers capable of combining technical excellence with the attention to safety needed in in-building deployments.
Additionally, as part of RFS’s work to provide complete solutions to meet the needs of its customers, RFS also intoduced a new series of hangers. The new Smart Fixing Solution (SFS) series will allow fast and reliable installation following RFS’s work to develop a range of hangers to help with the installation of its cable products in a variety of challenging environments.
