Within railway systems, tunnels and stations are considered as construction works with increased safety requirements in terms of the European Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
Different types of power, communication and signalling cables are installed throughout the entire system and therefore play a vital role within fire protection concepts. In the event of a fire, fire spread, heat and smoke release as well as acidity and toxicity of combustion gases are critical parameters.
Kabelwerk EUPEN AG recently completed its product range of fire safety cables for railway infrastructures by achieving
third party qualification for a comprehensive range of RAILWAY SIGNALLING CABLES acc. to the most stringent
CPR classification B2ca-s1a,a1*.
Cable constructions are available with:
- Twisted cores, quads or pairs
- Longitudinal and/or transversal watertightness
- Steel tape armouring
- Induction protection
MV and LV power cables as well as coaxial cables and radiating cables with the same qualification are available as well.
(* mandatory as per EU Commission regulation Nr. 1303/2014 + EU Commission implementing regulation Nr. 2019/776 with regards to fire safety in railway tunnels)
