When faced with aggressive environments and high mechanical stresses, cable manufacturers have traditionally protected their cables with a lead sheath and metal armor that increase the weight of the cable and reduce the installation flexibility.

Prysmian’s Airguard™ avoids these problems.

By combining our patented Airbag™ and Drylam® technologies we can supply a high-performance solution reducing cable diameter and weight with exceptional protection from fluid penetration, chemical aggression and mechanical shocks.

The absence of both lead sheath and metal armor means that Airguard™ has a more compact design and is less rigid, so it is easier to install. Thanks to a reduced diameter, more cable can fit on a standard cable drum, so it is ideal for longer cable lengths and requires fewer splice joints.  

The Airguard™ product range includes solutions for Medium Voltage, Low Voltage, Instrumentation, and Control cable applications. Therefore, it is an effective alternative to a cable in a conduit system and armored cables. It can also be used on horizontal and vertical feeders, branch circuits, and general industrial power applications. Airguard™ power cables are UL-approved for installation in-tray, raceway, aerial and direct buried environments.

Airguard™ offers an attractive range of benefits:

Chemical resistance
The hydrocarbon-blocking layer, combined with a metallic shield prevents the attack of moisture and liquids such as hydrocarbons and solvents, acids and bases.

Mechanical protection
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.

Electrical properties 
The metallic layer provides electromagnetic shielding and a current-carrying path for harmonics found with variable frequency drive motors.

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.
