Recent industry reports show that, due to flooding, 30% of cabling is replaced before a building is handed over to the client. Cable-Mat is designed to minimise this risk of inevitable insuance claims, which can arise.
Water ingress into the data cabling systems can have a serious effect on a cables ability to support high bit rate data transmission, i.e, Gigabit Ethernet.
When a data cable gets wet the dielectric performance is changed, affecting impedance and related parameters of attenuation and return loss.
It is a common misunderstanding that PVC data cables sleeves are waterproof; they are not, they are hygroscopic. Standard Cat5 and Cat6 cables are designed for indoor use only and therfore are not suitable in wet conditions.
Cable-Mat is a
Low Smoke, Zero Halogen,
permanent Anti-static, water resistant Polypropylene mat, designed for laying data cables on. By keeping cables off the floor, Cable-Mat protects against low level water flooding, attacks from chemicals in the floor screed and any sharp edges in the floor finish.
This 6mm deep Cable-Mat can also be used within wire basket tray systems to protect the data cables.
