FP200 Gold

What is FP200 Gold?

FP200 Gold is a “Standard” fire resistant cable specially designed to meet the requirements of BS 7629-1 for fire detection, fire alarm and emergency lighting systems in buildings. Prysmian Group invented the first extruded polymer fire resistant cables and FP200 Gold is the result of expertise and experience of our scientists and engineers. FP200 Gold is assessed and certified by independent accredited bodies, LPCB and BASEC.

Why do I need FP200 Gold?

Fire risk assessment must be carried out by law which means fire alarms and emergency lighting are usually needed for public buildings like factories, offices, schools and airports.
FP200 Gold is a “Standard” fire resistant cable and the ideal choice for these buildings. Large and complex buildings like hospitals need Enhanced” fire resistant cable, Prysmian FP PLUS. FP200 Gold are dressable, aluminium screened cables, with hard, damage resistant INSUDITE® insulation system.
It also features un-insulated tinned copper Circuit Protective Conductor (CPC). FP200 Gold always gives a quick and dependable installation and termination for your project providing confidence and reliability during commissioning and handover. FP200 Gold is the original solution and still the best.

Easy First-fix

FP200 Gold uses the original FP concept of a pliable aluminium tube construction. This allows installers to 'dress’ cable to the desired cable route without ‘spring-back’ or ‘memory’. It also allows straightening and reverse bending, which is particularly important in enclosed voids or cabinets, where final cable routes may change.

Less mess

Its compact, innovative construction eliminates the need for any additional chalk or powders inside the cable to help sheath removal and it has no additional glass-fibre tapes, reducing waste and mess

Easy termination

With the outer sheath bonded to the inner aluminium screen along its entire length, sheath removal is easy and reliable. With a light, shallow cut and a quick snap, the sheath is easily removed and comes away readily in a single piece, quickly exposing the cores.

AP clips

This traditional solution ensures a positive, whole cable and secure fixing that stops collapse and keeps circuit integrity when a building is on fire.

FP Firefix® Double Clip

Firefix is the fast and easy way to install Prysmian FP cables directly to the structure of a building.

Why is FP cable fixing critical?

Circuit integrity is the critical task required by fire resistant cables which means the cable MUST keep working by transmitting voltage and current safely to keep the system working. Therefore, all FP cables should be fixed securely to the building structure using non-combustible, permanent cable fixings that will not melt, burn, or perish causing the collapse of cables in a fire. Copper or ferrous fixings are suitable but aluminium, melting point 660˚C, is not.

As well as being non burning – any fixing selected should not impede the cable performance during a fire – to guarantee that the cable will carry on working. Choose BICON® cable accessories by Prysmian Group which have been fire tested with associated Prysmian FP cables.
