Brand-Rex expands RailSafe cable range

August 20, 2014

Brand-Rex, the leading data networking solutions and high performance cable provider, has announced the launch of a new line of RailSafe cables. The new range will enhance the company's position as a key cabling solutions provider to the rail industry.

Brand-Rex RailSafe is a range of high performance low voltage power and signalling, fibre optic and copper cables. These cables are designed for use in signalling, data, telecommunications track-side, underground and metro station applications, where the effect of fire on cables is critical to the cable performance in the environment installed.

The new range was designed especially for metro and rail markets with specific cables already approved for use by London Underground and Network Rail.

The new additions to the range include fibre non-metallic armoured multi loose-tube cables in 4-144 fibres, fire resistant optical cables in 4-24 fibres and shielded copper cables. Designed for telecom and data communication, CCTV and passenger information system applications, the new cables are ideal to support the safety and performance demands of rail infrastructure.

The complete RailSafe range has been designed to meet rigorous requirements for smoke flammability and toxicity and is ideal for installations where fire, smoke emission and toxic fumes requirements exceed those of standard cables, such as underground applications.

Developed by the Brand-Rex R&D team, these products pass the most stringent fire safety tests. In addition, the high performance RailSafe Armoured Fire Resistant Optical Cable not only meets the rigorous fire, smoke and toxicity requirements of London Underground, but also the IEC, BS EN and BS standards for fire survival.
