Cable Abatement

Uncovering the Hazards of Old Cables, Outdated or abandoned cables can contain highly flammable and toxic material. Each year, businesses across the nation spend millions in technology improvements that supercharge their productivity. Copper gives way to optical; USB to FireWire, POTS to ISDN. And with each new installation, more cables are encased in ceilings, floors and closets. Now, all of that unused cabling is the subject of increased scrutiny by fire protection professionals, property owners and local government and building authorities across the country.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has revised the National Electrical Code to address this issue. Now, unused cables that are not identified for future use must be removed. Since many facilities have several generations of cables snaking through floors and ceilings, the task of distinguishing between functioning and abandoned cable can be monumentally difficult.
