Emtelle have designed new CPR-compliant cables to meet the recently announced European CPR regulations. These new high classification cables reduce flame spread and introduce fewer hazardous substances in the event of a fire within a building.
This announcement made by the European Commission on Construction Product Regulations (CPR) controls construction materials installed within European buildings, and introduces new fire safety rules. The regulation states that all cables marketed in the European Economic Area (EEA) must carry a CE mark along with a formal Declaration of Performance (DOP) verifying compliance. These regulations come into force as of 01 July 2017 which mean manufacturers cannot supply cables unless they have been tested, certified and marked in accordance with the CPR requirements.
At Emtelle, we pride ourselves on compliance to worldwide regulations, and are delighted that our design and manufacturing capabilities allow to us to offer such necessary cables within an indoor environment to the FTTX market.
