Electrical Cable Enclosures
For reasons of compartmentation, practicality and convenience, electrical cables and pipes for other essential building services are frequently installed in corridors and then sub distributed to adjoining rooms and compartments. Corridors also serve as access and escape routes in the event of fire. Cable installations are therefore exposed to special risks and are worthy of particular concern. Electrical short circuits are still a major cause of fire, and smoke and toxic gases often accumulate in access and escape routes, further endangering both building occupants and emergency personnel
Tested and proven solutions are best for effective fire protection:
1. PROMATECT cable enclosures for exposure to fire from the inside
PROMATECT cable ducts inhibit and prevent fire and heat from spreading outside duct to other compartments, such as corridor escape routes, which remain usable for a certain period of required time.
2. PROMATECT cable enclosures for exposure to fire from the outside
PROMATECT cable ducts are designed to sustain the functionality of cable installations and also protect surrounding areas. Certain services, such as electricity for example, are required to sustain emergency/exit lightning in some critical areas.
