As you know on 07/17/2012, the fire in the Polat Tower Residence. which is a 42-story building in Şişli, Istanbul, led to damage to vehiclesand the surrounding area. During the fire which was taken under control at the end of a half-hour period, there was no loss of life. It is said that the fire was caused by the air-conditioning and the cables; although it has not been confirmed with an official statement as yet. 30% of fires are electrical fires and are caused by electrical household appliances. (London Fire Brigade fire causes in 2010 statistics).

Nowadays, with the development of information systems, with the rapid increase in the number of intelligent homes and building systems and the increase in the number of devices, data and power cables are employed more and more in everyday use. These cables that surround every part of the building, like a network, form a suitable structure for the fire to spread. In many major fires that occurred in the past, it has been that cables which had an important role in the expansion of the fire. Let’s remember some of the fires in which cables caused the expansion of the fire: Rockefeller Center, USA, (January 1996), Dusseldorf Airport, Germany (April 1996), GarLyn Building, Hong Kong, (November 1996), President Tower Bangkok, Thailand (February 1997), Credit Lyonnais Bank, France, (May 1997), Heathrow Airport, England, (December 1997), Montblanc Tunnel, France / Switzerland, (March 1999).
Fire-resistant cables are used in order to transmit energy and signals in the event of fire for a certain period of time. These cables maintain the integrity of the circuit, and communication for 180 minutes under fire conditions. Fire resistant cables are made of inorganic materials that do not emit smoke and toxic gases. These materials are silicone-based rubber, thermoplastic HFFR-based materials. Silicone is a synthetic rubber and it is obtained from silicon elements after a series of reactions. As there is no carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, chlorine or other halogens in its polymer composition, even when it is destroyed due to the effect of an open flame, it does not release toxic gases and smoke. Therefore, it is a completely halogen-free material. It does not pollute nature and the environment. It comes from the soil goes to the soil.

Since it has a structure different from other elastomers, especially in the areas where ordinary silicone elastomers fail to satisfy the needs of advanced technology, silicon insulation material is preferred. It is the dripping feature during burning that makes the silicone material (in exterior coating of buildings and cables) very important in the prevention of fire. This feature is extremely important for the safety of life and property and it does not exist in other insulating materials which drip with a ball-shaped flame.
We sell our products to many European countries and we are the most prestigious company in producing cables in our country. When we produce our goods, we pay attention to honesty and fairness to build them with the highest degree of quality.  We recognize our responsibility to minimize the environmental impacts of our operations and products. We must look ahead, understand the trends and forces that will shape our business in the future and move swiftly to prepare for what's to come. We must get ready for tomorrow today. The last thing to tell you is that we should use blue green cables (representing nature), which will not cause fire, not the fire-resistant ones.
