Where to use Plenum Security Alarm Cable
A broad range of applications exist for bulk plenum security alarm cabling. It is widely used with security systems, intercom systems, sound/audio systems, and power-limited controls in commercial settings such as schools, universities, hospitals, airports, government buildings, train and transportation centers, stadiums, and arenas. Since this security cable has multiple conductors under one jacket, the preparation, set up, and termination time is shorter.
A plenum space is the open area above the drop ceiling or below the floor that is used for air circulation in buildings. This could be a problem if there is ever a fire. Using non-plenum cables in a plenum space can spread fire and toxic smoke throughout a building. Plenum cable uses a flame-retardant jacket that is made of special plastics to prevent the release of harmful smoke. Plenum cable is mostly used in commercial applications such as schools and hospital buildings that house a large population of people. It also is required in most multi-floor business buildings with large plenum space areas.
