: Brown Technical Book Store
BS 8492:2016 gives recommendations for "reaction to fire" performance and fire protection of all types of telecommunications equipment and telecommunications cabling. It is applicable to: designing and implementing cabling infrastructures; selecting products, including materials and construction; minimizing fire spread; 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  will be addressed at a later date. This British Standard is intended for use by: those responsible for specifying infrastructure solutions including: premises owners; telecommunications consultants; telecommunications cabling installers; fire authorities; those involved in installing fire prevention and protection systems.
