Screened for safety

Prysmian's Afumex LSX low fire-hazard range has been developed to address the specific needs of modern building services. It is designed for power and lighting circuits where a screened low smoke halogen free cable is required. BASEC approved to BS8436, it meets all the requirements of the 17th edition Wiring Regulations for installation in thin walls and partitions, amongst other applications.

Screened for safety

Afumex LSX is a robust yet lightweight cable, which is compact in design.  It can be used in many instances where traditionally a bulky armoured cable would be installed, often with considerable cost-savings.

Manufactured with Prysmian's Earthshield safety screen technology, Afumex LSX is fully compliant with BS8436 and additionally tested for 600/1000 V rating by BASEC. It combines a longitudinal aluminium tape screen in contact with a full size CPC (circuit protective conductor) to achieve the necessary earthable layer.

The dressable construction offers a rigidity and ease of bending which keeps its shape during installation.  The cable is also easy to strip, significantly reducing the first and second fix termination times when compared with steel wire armoured cable.

As part of Prysmian's Low Fire-Hazard range, Afumex LSX provides excellent resistance to ignition and flame spread, producing very low levels of smoke and virtually no acidic gases when burnt, safeguarding human life and protecting buildings and equipment.
