FIREFITE® Flame Retardant Tapes


    This Category 5 shielding tape is a low-smoke and low-flame shielding tape. It decreases both average and peak smoke generation characteristics during all U.S. smoke and flame tests, including the Steiner tunnel test (UL910), the riser cable test (UL1666) and the general purpose vertical tray test (UL1581).
Typical Applications:
  • Cables designed for installation without conduit in air handling plenums.
  • Situations where an indoor/outdoor cable requires riser or plenum
    ratings to meet UL or other specifications.
  • Fire alarm (FPLP) cable.
