Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable industry, is proud to announce the availability of its breakthrough fire resistive Lifeline® RC90 cable, ushering in a new era of unparalleled safety for electrical installations in Canada. Officially receiving its ULC-S139 listing, Lifeline RC90 fire resistive cables are designed to mitigate the devastating effects of fire and are equipped with unique, ceramifiable silicone technology to allow vital communication and power systems to remain operational during extreme fire conditions.

Fire incidents significantly threaten lives, property, and infrastructure, necessitating the urgent need for superior fire safety measures. Recognizing this critical concern and realizing the limited options for Fire-Rated applications in Canada, Prysmian Group has dedicated substantial resources to develop an innovative line of fire resistive cables that meet the Canadian National Building and Electrical Codes and redefine safety norms.

“Until now, there have been limited options for a fully certified 600V power and control cable for Canadian Fire Protection installers, engineers and end users,” said Matteo D’Angelo, Fire Protection Product Manager, Prysmian Group. “The successful completion of the ULC-S139 listing is a great achievement for Prysmian Group and the Lifeline brand. By employing state-of-the-art technology and adhering to rigorous testing protocols, these cables offer exceptional flame resistance, low smoke emissions and minimal toxicity.”

Already applied all over the U.S., including within major metropolitan transit systems in Boston, New York and Washington D.C., as well as within professional sports arenas, high-rise buildings, entertainment venues, and hospitals, the introduction of the Lifeline fire resistive cables to the Canadian market will result in more competitive prices and availability for customers.
