Industrial, commercial, public and large-scale domestic building projects have a gamut of cabling requirements, ranging from connections to the electricity grid, fixed wiring for fire alarm or fire suppression systems, through to building management systems controlling climate and lighting, or infrastructure such as elevators and escalators.
UK & European regulation of cables in the building and construction industry (except fire performance cabling) are subject to the Construction Projects Regulation (CPR). Cleveland Cable Company is fully CPR compliant, and confirms that all cables manufactured since 1st July 2017 have been assessed in-line with CPR regulations (where applicable).
Facilitating connections to the wider energy Distribution Network Operator (DNO) infrastructure, Cleveland Cable Company’s range of medium voltage power cables includes copper or aluminium conductors, with or without waterblocking construction in armoured or non-armoured variants.
A range of cables sheathed in PVC (BS5467), LSZH (BS6724) or alternatively rubber cables where flexibility in complex installations is required.
Running through walls, cavity spaces or conduits, connecting sockets, switches and fittings fixed wiring can be installed using simple twin and earth cable (sheathed in either PVC or LSZH) or more complex, multi-core cable.
Used to control climate and lighting systems, helping to make buildings greener and more comfortable, building management systems require cabling for control and power applications.
Public buildings or those holding sensitive equipment may require cabling sheathed with Low Smoke, Zero Halogen (LSZH) material. LSZH sheathing (available across the Cleveland Cable Company range) emits none of the toxic gasses PVC releases when subject to fire conditions, whilst smoke from burning LSZH material also maintains a minimum of 60% light visibility.
