New from Prysmian Group: Fully CPR Compliant Draka Cat.6 U/UTP B2ca D65 Cable

Prysmian Group has launched its new Draka UC400 23 Category 6 U/UTP LSHF D65 B2ca data cable that is fully compliant with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).

The new UK manufactured Draka cable has a genuine Euroclass B2ca s1a d1 a1 fire performance rating for full CPR compliance without compromising data transmission levels; it delivers full Category 6 / Class E compliant electrical performance. This has been a key challenge faced by manufacturers, including Prysmian, frequently resulting in compromise or failure of one of three aspects; Data transmission performance, installation usability (high density diameter & low weight) and fire safety rating.

However, with CPR for cable products that are permanently installed in buildings in force, compromise is simply not an option. CPR requires third party testing of cables with a Notified Body for heat-energy content, plus spread of fire, smoke, acidity, heat emission and droplet formation (burning drops of plastic that spread fire), to ensure they meet fire performance requirements laid out in the harmonised European standard for cables in construction works subject to reaction to fire requirements under the CPR (EN 50575)
