Fire Rated Wiring and Building Alterations

AUST - Building owners need to ensure that their contractors or tenants contractors know when fire-rated wiring is required.   Fire rating cable allows electrical connections in a building to work for a specific amount of time while there is a fire. This is vital for the safety of tenants as it supports essential safety measures such as emergency lighting and smoke control to work, providing a safe evacuation. It is extremely important that building owners ensure that their contractors install the correct fire-rating wiring. Tenant fit-outs can uncover existing cabling that isn’t compliant and potentially open up investigations for lease conditions.
