In most cable applications, you will need cable pathways to run from a data center to a work space and the roads between those endpoints most likely run through plenum space. Plenum space is a necessary work area for contractors and installers and, due to the high volume of oxygen, fires can easily spark and spread throughout a building. Plenum-rated cables and fasteners are less toxic and help to prevent the spread of fires. This is important within highly populated buildings such as offices, schools and hospitals. VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® FR Tape is a practical and fire retardant cable management solution for cable pathways within plenum space. Here are the reasons why VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® FR Tape can make your next installation safer and more secure.
Damage Free & Data Friendly
VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® FR Tape can be unwrapped and reused many times during its lifespan. These easy-to-use fasteners eliminate the risk of puncturing cables during adds, moves or changes while reducing waste, compared to traditional single-use plastic alternatives.
Compliance with National Electric Code & Plenum-rated
Plenum spaces require fire retardant cables in order to prevent fires from spreading throughout a building. If you are spending the time and effort to make sure your cables are compliant, you will need to verify that you have fire retardant cable management too. VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® FR Tape is UL rated and suitable for use in air handling spaces in accordance with Section 300.22 (C) and (D) of the National Electrical Code.
Additionally, experts say that by using fire retardant equipment, liability can be lowered due to the reduced risk of fire damage.
