FLAMEGARD Flame Retardant Low Smoke Cables
FLAMEGARD - FLAME RETARDANT LOW SMOKE ELECTRICAL WIRES.
Now, for the first time in India, Finolex brings Flamegard - Flame Retardant Low Smoke (FRLS) electrical wires. Flamegard is manufactured
by using electrolytic grade copper to ensure superior conductivity. Insulated with a PVC compound formulated in-house, Flamegard has
special flame retardant and low smoke emitting 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. Flamegard, on the contrary, not only emits very little smoke & toxic gases, but also retards the spread of fire. It is
thus ideal for concealed and conduit wiring in multi-storied buildings such as hotels, banks, hospitals, factories, commercial & residential
complexes, etc. Approval of the Tariff Advisory Committee means that the user of these cables has to pay lower insurance premium.
Flamegard goes through rigorous tests to ensure the highest standards of quality. It is also backed by the ISI mark and has the Tariff
Advisory Committee and fire insurance approval.
IS:694
Look for the unique orange stripe on the wire to identify Finolex Flamegard wires.
