FireSense Cables - Approval Update - Building Wire

Jun 08 , 2018

'Building Wire' cable is now a Declared Article in NSW, and has been added to Part 2 of AS/NZS4417, as a Level 3 classification. A Level 3 classification is determined as 'high risk'. Any cable deemed Level 3 is required to be tested, granted regulatory approval & marked with a RCM logo to comply with these new requirements.

As of 1st July 2018, all NSW wholesalers & contractors can only sell Building Wire cables that have a NSW Approval Number and/or approved alternate mark.


These new changes apply to most of our Fire Rated cable, however all FireSense TPS & Fire Rated cables have been tested, approved and will be marked with our Certification number & RCM logo, as per these requirements. The new markings will be printed onto the sheath of our cable, our drums and our packaging. 


For consistency, and peace of mind, FireSense's entire range of cables extends well beyond the Building Wire requirements referred to in the standards. We have applied the same rigourous tests and have added the same markings for all cables, including our ELV/LV cable, our Screened cable and our larger Single Core cables.
