Fire Performance – Cabling In Data Centres

Date: , Track: , Location:

“By the 1st July 2017, cables placed on the market have to specify their “reaction to fire” performance in terms of EuroClass in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation.  However, which EuroClass is to be installed where? This is not addressed by the CPR and is left to national implementation. This presentation explains what is expected to be specified in BS 6701 (telecommunications) and BS 7671 (LV power supply).  In addition, the presentation will address the plans of other countries. The information provided is important whether you are specifying new data centres or just maintaining the installations in existing ones.”
