CPR: All the information at a glance

Fire classes and Declarations of Performance are online

Since July 1st the new Construction Products Regulation EU 305/2011 has applied across the entire European area (see our FAQs). We have tested the reaction to fire of the copper and fibre optic data cables concerned and published it in our online data sheets.

For months now Datwyler has been keeping its customers up to date with information and special seminars on the CPR. In the meantime we have gradually been incorporating the new fire classes into the online data sheets.

In the product overviews there are already selection filters for product reaction to fire conforming to EN 13501-6 (Euroclasses), so that customers can quickly find the cables of the Euroclass they are searching for. In the data sheets the main class is clearly indicated by easy-to-understand icons on the pictogram bar. Reaction to fire, including the additional classifications, is also shown under “Standards”.

Since July the “Declarations of Performance” have been available to download from our website in several languages. You will find them as PDF files directly beside the article numbers.
