LIFELINE, TWO HOUR FIRE RATED CABLES

LIFELINE is a cost effective means for providing two hour fire protection as required for your most critical circuits. It replaces Mineral Insulated (MI) cable, concrete encasement or construction of unnecessary fire barriers as the optimum way to protect critical circuits against attack by fire and water. Beyond the obvious economical advantage LIFELINE R90 can be installed in long lengths (using standard pull through fittings and labor rates), does NOT require special tools or connectors and (with proper planning) circuit expansion, replacement or resizing can readily be accomplished in the future.

REUSABLE RECYCLABLE REMARKABLE

Every year thousands of tonnes of steel is salvaged, recycled and reused in new construction. Steel is the most recycled material in the world. It is easily regenerated, without losing its remarkable qualities. An old car is melted down to produce soup cans, bridge beams and corrugated culverts. Steel recycling is second nature and almost invisible to the average citizen. By shaping steel to optimize its toughness, strength and weight characteristics, creative designers can use less of our valuable resources to get more of what we need.
