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.
QX100 uses LSHZ (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) which as the name suggests gives off very little smoke and no halogen toxins in the event of a fire. LSZH cables are made from a special compound that performs as well as PVC insulation.
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 required standards.
