## What are halogen-free powercords? Halogen-free cables have long been mandatory in sensitive areas such as public facilities and buildings for fire protection reasons. However, it makes sense in principle to equip office buildings, practice rooms or generally workplaces and of course also data centres with halogen-free cables, as these release less toxic gases in case of fire.
Furthermore, flame-retardant and self-extinguishing properties of the cables are required, as well as the fact that a fuse effect is excluded. Both the patch and power cables used must meet these fire protection requirements. Although halogen-free cables are already widely used in electrical and network installations, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) cables are still frequently used for the last few metres from the junction box to the individual workstation.
Our halogenfree powercords combine these basic characteristics and thus contribute to the safety of your working environment.
