Safe Wire For Safer Homes
There are various types of electrical wires available that differ in their insulation material and copper construction, which determine their suitability for specific applications. Let us take a look at each one of them to help you choose the correct wire for you.
This is the most common type of electrical wire available that is insulated with flame retardant PVC. This means that it resists or slows down the spread of fire. It is the most used wire in households, commercial buildings, theatres, and public places. However, these wires have a high impact on the environment and human health as their PVC contains Lead, which is toxic heavy metal.At Jainson we do not use PVC that contains lead due to its high impact on the environment and human health.
These wires have the same properties as FR PVC Copper Wires but do not contain lead in their PVC insulation. FRLF PVC insulation is made using calcium or zinc or both which gives strength and durability. In many countries, including the United States and the European Union, regulations limit or disallow the use of lead in PVC products, which has led to an increase in the use of lead-free PVC.All the wires and cables of Jainson are made of Lead Free PVC Only i.e., all our products are 100% Lead Free.
These wires are insulated with PVC material that is both flame retardant and low smoke emitting. In case of a fire, it produces less smoke, which reduces the risk of suffocation and improves visibility. It is commonly used in densely populated areas, such as hospitals, schools, and high-rise buildings.
These electrical wires are insulated with PVC material that is both flame retardant and emits zero halogens. This means that it does not emit toxic halogen gases when exposed to fire or high temperatures, making it safer for humans and the environment.
It is recommended that the House and Building Wires are made with Class 2 Copper Conductor as the diameter of individual strands is higher which leads to an increase in the overall Current Rating or ampere capacity of the Wire. It is usually suitable for fixed installation like internal wiring in buildings and households. At Jainson the House wires are made with Class 2 Copper Construction using the Electrolytic Copper (EC) Grade for all its wires and cables.
The majority of the wires available in the market are in Class 5. The key difference is that while it increases the flexibility of the wire but leads to a reduction in the Current Rating or ampere capacity of the wire and increases resistance leading to higher power consumption due to an overall reduction in the copper content. It is usually suitable for industrial applications or main power supply lines in buildings.
