BS 8436 Safe-T-Shield

Safe-T-Shield is a pre-wired conduit cable offering faster installation and increased levels of safety for wiring in public buildings.Tested to the performance criteria of BS 8436 the cable can be buried in the wall, installed on cable tray or directly clipped. The aluminium screen and protective earth core ensure a “safe short circuit“ is achieved if the cable is pieced or damaged. The Low Smoke Halogen Free screened design make the cable an ideal choice for sensitive environments such as hospitals, data centres and airports where evacuation can be slow or there is a risk to expensive equipment.          

Safe-T-Shield has shown installation savings of up to 40% can be achieved compared to conventional SWA wiring due to its lightweight design and faster install time.

This cable is an alternative to Tyco Multi-Plus and Prysmian LSX® Brand, both are available from FSC Global.
