Presentations & Whitepapers

MICC actively campaigns for improvements in building safety and International fireproof cable standards. We have a wide range of technical whitepapers, presentations, and videos to support Governments, Consultants, End Users and any organisation concerned by the gaps in certifications and regulations highlighted by the many recent fire disasters around the Globe.

We have supplied MI Fire Survival Cable all over the world and across numerous different applications. For further examples please check our Applications and References page.

We believe that standards often do not reflect these “Real World” conditions and as such often plastic cables are used which ‘pass the standards’ but are simply not fit for purpose when the Required Safe Evacuation Time is longer than 10 minutes.

To summarise once again the benefits of MI Cable are:

  • Proven 3 hour escape time in ‘Real World’ fire conditions            
  • The only small diameter light duty cable to pass the highest level of modern furnace tests like ASNZS3013, ISO834-1 and UL2196
  • Inorganic construction = nothing to burn and none combustible
  • Nothing to burn = Zero toxic emissions and Zero smoke
  • Inorganic materials = It will last a lifetime (MI Cable applications from the 1950’s are still in use today)
  • Holistic Fire Survival = Zero Combustion and Zero Heat Release
  • Naturally Armoured = Pest proof and no risk of rodent damage
  • Self-Monitoring = Will not cause false alarms due to undetected damage on installation
  • UL2196 approval = MI Cable will survive the only realistic fire survival test in the world. Here it is installed both vertically and horizontally in a Furnace at over 1000C and further to this blasted with a fire hose. 

Our standard presentations and whitepapers are provided below, however, our representatives are happy to support you specifically on your project anywhere in the World, please contact us to discuss how we can help.
