CPR Compliance – In Brief

2019-09-17T14:01:21+00:00

Although there are some exceptions, generally speaking it is illegal to install any cable that was placed on the market on or after 1st July 2017 that is not CPR compliant. We believe that CPR class CCA is destined to become the benchmark for many commercial installations in the UK. It provides the benefits of reduced reaction to fire in tandem with the robust verification process of System 1+.

Integrated Emergency Test – The benefits

2019-10-07T16:56:37+00:00

flex7 lighting controls are available with the added benefit of integrated emergency test. This feature can save time during both installation, and when carrying out periodic testing. Our lighting controls can easily be networked together meaning that rather than testing each circuit or phase separately, you can simply use one master key switch to test emergency luminaires across multiple circuits or even phases.

On July 1st 2017 a new and mandatory ruling with respect to making a cable’s fire related properties publically available came into force, but rather than diving straight into the specifics it may be more useful to start with something of an overview of how and why it came to be. The burning question (no pun intended) has to be whether there will be an immediate impact on the UK’s construction industry?
