UL released a new white paper entitled, “Clearing Misconceptions About Low-Smoke, Halogen-Free Cables,clarifying misconceptions among manufacturers, product specifiers and contractors regarding the meaning of the “LSFH” designation, and the extensive, standards-based testing that is required to ensure that a cable fully complies with LSFH requirements.

This white paper discusses the benefits of using LSHF-rated cables in key construction applications and the type of testing required to verify that a cable is truly low-smoke and halogen-free. It also discusses the specifics of UL’s Material Recognition Program, the cable surface mark program for LSHF cables and materials, and the benefits of certification in accordance with the requirements of UL 2885, “Outline of Investigation for Acid Gas, Acidity and Conductivity of Combusted Materials and Assessment of Halogens.”
