Help what cable

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Need to run in a few cables quick to keep work moving. I remember somebody speaking about using some other cable (twin and earth) so it doesn't react with the eps in a ICF house, or am I cracking up??

Run the cable in conduit, perhaps?

Vague recollection that LSZH (low-smoke zero-halogen) cable is OK with polystrene. http://www.greenbuildingtalk.com/Forums/tabid/53/aff/4/aft/81523/afv/topic/Default.aspx seems to confirm.

 

Apart from the normal PVC, LSZH is the only alternative I know of which is commonly available. It's usually specified for use in service voids in commercial premises so is usually in stock in at professional suppliers. Think I've seen it in DIY sheds, too.

Cheers Ed. I asked the icf supplier before you replied and he said the same. Managed to pick up a reel in local tool station.

We will be using conduit as much as possible plus if we over spray with insulation. 

This is for soffit lights etc.
