DESCRIPTION

BS 8492:2016+A1:2017


This standard BS 8492:2016+A1:2017 Telecommunications equipment and telecommunications cabling. Code of practice for fire performance and protection is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 33.020 Telecommunications in general
  • 13.220.99 Other standards related to protection against fire

This British Standard gives recommendations for “reaction to fire” performance and fire protection of all types of telecommunications equipment and telecommunications cabling. It is applicable to:

  1. designing and implementing cabling infrastructures;

  2. selecting products, including materials and construction;

  3. minimizing fire spread;

  4. increasing safety levels for personnel and property.

This British Standard does not cover resistance to fire, or circuit integrity, of cables intended for use within emergency circuits.

NOTE It is expected that relevant standards addressing the performance and classification of cables with defined resistance to fire in accordance with the existing decision for cables under the Construction Products Regulation [1] will be addressed at a later date.

This British Standard is intended for use by:

  1. those responsible for specifying infrastructure solutions including:

    1. premises owners;

    2. telecommunications consultants;

    3. telecommunications cabling installers;

  2. fire authorities;

  3. those involved in installing fire prevention and protection systems.
