Critical Life-Safety Systems

Let’s talk about critical life-safety systems. When fire breaks out in a high-rise, occupants and first responders rely on the building’s Emergency Communication System (ECS) and fire alarms for fast evacuation and instant firefighting information. The safety of the occupants is the top priority for first responders, and Radix Wire’s DuraLifeTM FPL UL 2196 certified 2-hour rated circuit integrity cables deliver!

Radix Wire’s own, Patrick O’Hara, Sales Representative Distribution Market, published the following article which was featured in ‘NEMA Electroindustry’s’ May 2014 edition. I would be hard pressed to explain it any better so; please check out Patrick’s work in the link below. If you’d prefer a pdf version of the article, please email me and I’ll be happy to provide the same.

Safeguarding Occupant Safety is Priority One

In future posts we’ll focus more on specific NFPA 70: National Electric Code and NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code compliance and how DuraLifeTM FPL Cables satisfy a variety of applications where 2-hour survivability is crucial for life safety systems.
