Nexans Fire Resistant Tape also referred to as G.I.N.G.E.R is specifically designed to protect LV, MV, and HV joints and cables against fire in applications where where low smoke emission and resistance to fire is needed. Cables or cable joints can be simply and quickly overwrapped with the fire resistant tape to provide protection against fire spread or flame progation according to the international standards listed below.
