Cable manufacturer Tratos is pleased to announce its Firesafe TW950e cables have been approved to London Underground (LUL) standard 1-085 A3 and are now authorised for use in sub surface locations, including tunnels and underground stations.

Firesafe TW950e is an enhanced fire resistant cable for systems needing to operate fully during a fire for longer periods than those normally required for single phase evacuation; these include fire detection, alarm and emergency voice communication systems.

Commenting on this latest development, John Light, managing director of Tratos, states: “Achieving compliance with this LUL standard is a significant achievement as the tests are rigorous and stringent, as they should be for a potentially life-saving product. Organisations the world over recognise this LUL standard as a benchmark for fire safety.”


In addition to LUL standard 1-085 A3, Firesafe TW950e conforms to BS7629-1:1997 (incorporating amendments numbers 1 & 2), meets class PH120 in accordance with BS EN 50200:2000 and meets the requirements of enhanced fire resistant cable as described in BS 5839-1:2002 clause 26.2,defined in BS 8519.
