  1. Protecting life safety circuits in high rise buildings.

    Article - En anglais

    Fire damage to emergency circuits in high rise buildings must be prevented.

    When combined with smoke and heat spread, such damage may result in far greater loss of life and destruction of property, as gravely shown by the aftermath of the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City Federal Building bombings, and a fire in a major New York City hotel.

    Fire resistive wiring for fire pumps and other life safety systems is thus presented.
