Electrical Cable Enclosures
For reasons of compartmentation, practicality and convenience, electrical cables and pipes for other essential building services are frequently installed in corridors and then sub distributed to adjoining rooms and compartments. Corridors also serve as access and escape routes in the event of fire. Cable installations are therefore exposed to special risks and are worthy of particular concern. Electrical short circuits are still a major cause of fire, and smoke and toxic gases often accumulate in access and escape routes, further endangering both building occupants and emergency personnel.
