Why Should I Buy Low Smoke Zero Halogen?


When browsing cables, you will have undoubtedly come across the term ‘Low Smoke Zero Halogen’ (LS0H & LSZH are common abbreviations). This feature is an extremely important one to take note of.

If a fire breaks out in a building, the fumes from standard PVC cabling can actually cause more harm to the occupants than the flames themselves, both to their lungs and also in obscuring exits. With Low Smoke Zero Halogen cables, there is a huge reduction in smoke, which could save lives.

While there is an obvious price difference, the price increase for LS0H is a no-brainer, when you consider the safety aspect. Watch the video below which illustrates just how much smoke the standard cables produce in comparison.


Scary, right? Luckily, we have just added the XeLAN range of cable to our website that of course boasts Low Smoke Zero Halogen as a feature. Why not check it out.
