QED QX-CAT5e UTP LSZH Grey is a high quality unscreened Cat5 enhanced data networking cable with the added bonus of a LSZH fire rated jacket.
Perfect for Systemline products and any multi-room and data system designed to run on Cat5e cable. Most cables feature PVC insulation, some have a basic fire rating such as CL3, etc. Unfortunately, most cables give off hazardous toxic smoke during a fire, posing a very serious health risk.
LSZH cables are made from a special compound that performs as well as PVC insulation, but crucially gives off very little smoke and no halogen toxins in the event of a fire. Many leading architects and builders along with commercial and marine designers are now specifying LSZH spec cables as standard. Only LSZH cables meet the legislated fire specifications for boat installations.
Each complete QED Professional cable design is fully tested to LSZH standards and reports are available on request.
We don't just use a fire rated jacket material over an ordinary cable assembly; each complete cable design including jacket and all internal conductors has to undergo rigorous fire safety testing to the following standards:
- Low smoke, 0% halogen outer jacket
- Certified CAT5e high performance
- Industry standard colour coding
