  • Beaucamps
    corridors FP Plus forms part of the fire alarm system with its enhanced performance Safety for staff and pupils is of paramount importance and with this in mind Lauren Lloyd Guernsey Ltd opted for Prysmian in their installation at the new facility The main contractor at Les Beaucamps site RG Falla also based in Guernsey engaged Lauren Lloyd for the electrical work at the site Installation began in October 2011 with 35km of Afumex LSX 1 5mm to 4mm two and three core and also 10km of two core 1 5mm FP Plus Contracts Director Gavin Charles at Lauren Lloyd explains Afumex LSX was used on this project as an alternative to PVC Twin and Earth as this is a more robust alternative with a better reaction to fire This was my first experience of Afumex LSX and I am very happy with the results Afumex LSX is a low smoke zero halogen LSOH cable with flame retardant properties a safer alternative to PVC in the event of a fire Afumex LSX will self extinguish when the flame is removed producing low volumes of smoke free from toxic halogen acid gases present in the PVC alternative Prysmian s FP Plus with enhanced Insudite insulation provides an unmatched combination of rigidity and flexibility resulting in an easy installation for an enhanced cable Both FP Plus and Afumex LSX achieve full compliance with test requirements including BASEC and LPCB approval Les Beaucamps High School currently houses 500 students and additional facilities are being added to cater for an increased intake The new facilities are being built adjacent to the current school so that the pupils can carry on with their studies undisturbed The school is currently in the first phase of the 30 million redevelopment due for completion July 2012 with the

  • Reduce the risk
    that would provide a range of cross functional benefits for example internal aluminium sheath now in high demand The aluminium sheath enables LSX to be used as a data or signal cable because it acts as a 360 electrostatic screen protecting the signal Conversely when used as an energy or small LV power cable the same screen protects adjacent data circuits from corruption This makes LSX ideal for structured wiring in new buildings and retro fitting into existing cable routes without the need for additional protection saving time and money in the process This same metallic sheath also provides a robust mechanical protection because our technique of orientation and bonding between the metal and the oversheath makes a strong but light composite This enables LSX to be used in place of small surface mounted armoured cables when used indoors and allows considerable savings in terms of containment support clips glands and terminations LSX needs no metallic glands to provide sealing or earth continuity nylon glands are sufficient so the savings mount up The aluminium sheath provides a significant safety benefit too safe when spiked We make the aluminium internal sheath the right thickness and overlap to carry a fault current
