Innovative building cable solutions


New residential housing is often stimulated by lower mortgage rates, cheaper materials and the availability of labor, while the construction of new offices, public buildings and industrial plants is often influenced by strategic corporate investment and government economic policy. The dynamism of emerging countries may soon account for 48% of the building market worldwide.

Cabling trends

Whatever the rate of construc-tion, a number of trends are clearly emerging among our cable customers, often expressed in new expectations and demands.

As a builder, promoter, designer, installer, or system integrator of residential, public and office buildings, or industrial plants, you would like to see: •Safety: especially in terms

of fire-performance to protect people and the building, itself •Sustainability: energy-efficiency,

health and comfort, low environmental impact •Fast installation: pre-assembled

systems, convenient reels, and smart packaging •More bandwidth: for home

entertainment, business and factory applications •Integrated solutions: for

technologies (energy/data, copper/fiber) and systems

The dynamic building market…


…calls for safer and greener cable solutions

Nexans offers a comprehensive range of innovative cable solu-tions to ensure the safety and environmental-friendliness of today’s buildings.

•Residential:In addition to standard cables, Nexans provides a full choice of specialized cables and network solutions to meet the growing demands of the information-rich modern home, while providing new levels of security and comfort.

•Public and Office Buildings:Nexans works closely with builders and instal-lers to identify needs

for specific building types, and new functions, like Data Centers, Security Services and Storage Area Networks (SANs). In some cases, this involves upgrading to higher grade copper and optical fiber cables and active and passive equipment, and in others, the merging of multifunctional applications (e.g. Voice and Video-Over-IP) on an enhanced LAN system.

•Industrial Buildings: With Ethernet rapidly becoming a common factory platform, connecting machines, robots and equipment on the factory floor with the front/back office, Nexans has developed a number of industrial solutions, including open standards and architectures and Industrial Ethernet. Fire-safety cables protect both people and plant infrastructure. Industrial cables are environmentally-friendly (lead-free, low EMI) and are fully recyclable.
