KEI’s Fire Survival Cables are supplied to Oil refineries, Oil Wells, Steel Plants and Power Plants with KEI already reaching out to ONGC (On Shore and Off Shore oil platform) Petro chemicals, DMRC, BHEL to name a few.

Traditionally, the main application for fire survival cables is in fire alarm systems, as this cable continues to operate for a specified period in the event of a fire. In addition to fire alarm systems, these cables are also used in other safety-critical wiring circuits, such as those powering emergency lighting, data recording system and sprinkler pumps.

Fire Survival cables are required in commercial/residential buildings for more sophisticated alarm systems, emergency telephone lines, CCTV systems and public address systems that have to continue to operate during a fire and also in critical equipments such as elevators. Over the years the usage is on the increase with newer applications emerging in Cinema Halls & Hospitals.

KEI has developed and established in-house Design, manufacturing and testing facility to offer these cables. The special braiding, taping and extrusion facilities at KEI make it possible to design and offer cables as per their customer’s requirements in a short period of time. KEI has created a large infrastructure by strategically locating its three manufacturing units over a built up area of 128,494.26sq.m. Two manufacturing units are located in Rajasthan- at Bhiwadi and Chopanki and the third one at Silvassa in Dadar/ Nagar Havelli.
