CABLESCOM HAS ACHIEVED CERTIFICATION FOR FIBRE-OPTIC CABLES WITH EUROCLASS B2CA – S1A, D0, A1.
Since 2017, all cables permanently installed on construction sites within the European Union have had to comply with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR, 305/2011). This regulation means that suppliers have to ensure the quality of their products in terms of performance against fire, and makes possible the CE marking on the cables. Furthermore, the technical specification for interoperability related to safety in railway tunnels requires minimum compliance with class B2ca – s1a, d2, a1 for all cables installed in tunnels in the European territory.
In our commitment to guaranteeing the highest quality of its products, CablesCom, a leading manufacturer of signalling and telecommunications cables, has achieved certification for fibre-optic cables with Euroclass B2ca – s1a, d0, a1. These cables meet the requirements for installation in tunnels in the EU, with the maximum fire-safety guarantees.
This certification means that the fibre-optic cables have successfully passed the extreme tests that simulate fire situations, ensuring for example limited fire spreading, reduced heat emission and minimised opaque and toxic fume emission. All this, under the supervision of Notified Bodies that monitor compliance with current regulations and CablesCom’s production processes.
In order to serve the needs of all our customers, the B2ca – s1a, d0, a1 product range in CablesCom fibre-optic cables covers a wide range of fibre counts, from 4 to 288, with a design that facilitates cable installation via easy fibre-peeling.
