The award shows how increasingly important halogen free wiring and cable systems are becoming to the construction industry.

But why use halogen free cable in the first place?

There are a number of reasons why it is becoming far more popular to use in construction and manufacturing.

Low smoke and halogen free wiring is increasingly necessary to protect against the risk of toxic gas emissions occurring during a fire.  Halogen free cables are engineered and designed so that emissions during a fire offer low toxicity and low smoke.
