CPR: First DoP’s from February onwards

Data sheets with Euroclasses and Declarations of Performance

Since July 2016 the new European standards for the classification of fire behaviour have been officially applicable and the European test laboratories are accredited to test cables and assign the new European classes (Euroclasses). As of the effective date, 1 July 2017, only cables tested and classified in accordance with the new standards can be marketed in Europe.

From February 2017 onwards we will gradually be incorporating the "Declarations of Performance" (DoP’s) on our cables into the data sheets on our website. 

All the details in respect of reaction to fire conforming to EN 13501-6 (Euroclasses) will be shown under "Standards". Easily understandable icons in the pictgram bar will also enable customers to see the main class at a glance.
