Gurfil focuses on complete solutions for fire resistant cables manufacturers

The requirement for the building fire safety has grown considerably over the past years.  Hospitals, airports, tunnels, underground railways, hotels, cinemas, cultural entertainment centers, shopping malls, high buildings etc.  these places with big crowds requires strategically important equipment such us emergency lighting, elevators, signal equipment, control units, emergency fire pumps etc. that cannot stop working during the fire and that needs to be preserved from fire damage. 

Flame retardant cable slows the spread of fire and provides critical escape time in case fire occurs. Fire retardant cables are designed to burn slowly and they continue functioning for a certain period of time which will allow safe evacuation of a building by maintaining smoke handling and emergency lighting systems. 

Based on its nearly 40 years of experience and on the results of its own research and development, Gurfil introduces equipment and technologies for the cable industry on the market, developing complex technological solutions, including raw materials and materials for the production of fire-resistant cables.

Free of halogens, toxic gases and fumes given away during a fire, environmentally friendly Gurfil phlogopite mica tape is commonly used in the manufacture of fire resistant cables. With its high flexibility, mica tape can be easily applied to the cable using taping machines.


Global demand for flame retardant cables is predicted only to expand through the next 4-5 years.
