Vessel cables produced by TF Kable occupy an important position in the portfolio of products dedicated to the shipbuilding industry. These types of cables have been offered by our group from the beginning of the 1990s Experience gained from relationships with European and Far-Eastern yards has resulted in the development of light and compact cables, with high flexibility for easy installation in tight spaces.
Operational safety of the cables in extreme maritime conditions is another very important aspect. Therefore, all existing cables have halogen-free covers which do not spread flame and do not emit harmful gases during fires. We offer fire resistant cables ensuring long-lasting operation in a specified time under fire conditions for safety circuits, e.g. emergency power to light escape routes.
The cables are tested in our modern fire testing laboratory (Kraków-Wieliczka plant), equipped with the necessary equipment and accessories for testing in accordance with the international standards (IEC 60331 - test of the continuity of insulation in case of fire, IEC 60332 - test of spreading flame on harnesses and single samples, IEC 61034 - test of density of emitted smoke, IEC 60754 - test of emission of corrosive gases, etc.). Our specialist construction and technology teams enable the production of the optimally low weight of cables and the minimum outer diameter possible, allowing for easy installation. The quality of our cables has been verified by the world’s reputable certifying authorities, such as Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyd's Register, Det Norske Veritas, the Polish register of vessels, Registro Italiano Navale, American Bureau of Shipping, Bureau Veritas, ClassNK. Our vessel cables are installed on a number of ships for companies around the world
