CPR certification

Cavicondor is glad to inform you that our H07Z1-K Type 2 (from 1,5 mmq to. 240 mmq) has been classified with the following CPR class: Cca s1b, d1, a1.

H07Z1-K Type 2 is a product made with a halogen free thermoplastic insulation. It is recommended for use in environments with high people density, even when not mandatory by law (in structure as hospitals, hotels, schools, theaters and so on…) when specific fire resistance features are needed and where local regulations demands high level of public safety with low smoking and toxic gas emission.

 

CPR Certification: Regulation

All the cables must be part of a specific class of fire reaction, related to their specific purpose. Energy cables and control cables, despite their nominal tension or use, have to meet specific fire reaction requirements, expressed by the CPR regulation:

  • Energy cables and control cables to be installed in civil engineer buildings or public places that must be in compliance with specific fire reaction requirements for safety reasons;
  • Energy cables and alarm cables to be installed in civil engineer buildings or public places that must be in compliance with specific fire reaction requirements that allows the cable to still be operative even in case of fire to guarantee service continuity.

 

CPR certification: Test

When it comes to CPR class identification the regulation to follow is EN 50575:2014 “Energy, control and communication cables – cables for general purposes to be used in building construction with specific fire reaction”.

The below Table 1 (tabella 1) shows the reference to European Regulations that provides several kind of tests to be passed in order to be classified within a specific fire reaction class.

Unfitting use

H07Z1-K cables are suitable for use in protected fixed installation in illumination and control systems with nominal voltage up to 1.000 V in DC or 750 V in AC, both for surface or in duct installation.

H07Z1-K cables are halogen free. In case of fire they will not emit toxic smoke in the environment.

H07Z1-K Type 2 is not suitable for use in contact with water.
