AIRGUARD® Features & Benefits
No Knife? No Problem! The combination of a unique design and strategically placed ripcords allows AIRGUARD® cables to be stripped much faster than metal-clad cables, without the worry of nicked or damaged phase conductors.
The hydrocarbon-blocking layer, combined with a metallic shield, prevents the attack of moisture and liquids such as hydrocarbons and solvents, acids and bases.
The Airbag™ layer has been proven in millions of meters of installed cable to absorb physical shock and reduce the damage to a cable core.
The metallic layer provides electromagnetic shielding and a current-carrying path for harmonics found with variable frequency drive motors.
Not propagating a fire is a critical design parameter of any cable for the industrial market. Low-voltage AIRGUARD passes all the industry standard flame tests, including IEEE 1202, FT-4 and IEEE 383 210,000 BTU flame test.
