Phelps Dodge is helping build the cities of the future, today. Pioneering new buildings increasingly form part of a highly urbanised landscape that is expanding vertically to host many thousands
In this fast - evolving environment, we support the co nstruction industry as it faces continual challenges – maintaining quality of life for urban dwellers and upholding efficient installation times whilst providing effective new solutions for safety.
Cable quality has never been so crucial.
Every year, 4000 people are killed by fire.
Growing fires inside buildings represent 90% of total fires.
Faults in electrical installations are the second most common cause of fires.
There can be kilometres of cable keeping a single building running and enhancing its safety – essential in fires and emergencies. Yet there are still non - compliant cables on sale today.
Cables may represent only a small percentage of a build’s cost. However, some people opt for low - quality products, causing risk to the building’s inhabitants and delays to installation time. They may look similar on the surface, but the difference between a high - quality and a non - compliant cable is significant.
When it comes to superior safety and quality, our cables out - performed our competitors when tested for:
• Flame retardancy.
• Circuit integrity when withstanding fire.
• Lower risk of short circuit and fire ignition.
• Lower electrical losses.
Our usability test results indicated great savings on installation time due to the following features:
• Easy to strip
• Easy to flex
• Less memory effect
• Better slipperiness
• Easy termination
• Stronger outer sheath
• Less pollution
When it comes to superior safety and quality, our cables out-performed out competitors when tested.
Our cables have been analysed in real construction projects, and the findings revealed a superior level of safety, increased energy efficiency and savings on installation time.
You’ll save more compared to purchasing low - quality cables.
We are committed to cable innovation that combines world - class functioning capabilities with measurable economic advantages, both on installation cost and total cost of ownership.
