    Fire resistant cables

    This is an odd request but does anyone involved in construction know of any cable warehouse where I can get 'Fire Resistant Cables' such as found here: Special Cable

    The manufacturers have massive lead times for delivery (2-4 months!) so I am looking for a local supplier who has stock available now.
    Specifically I need 35mm2 & 25mm2 copper at about 200m lengths

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Rat, Thanks for the link. some good info there.

    I should be more specific. The cable must be from one of our approved suppliers in Thailand: (A private company that holds stock of cables would be best)

    Bangkok Cable
    Thai Yazaki
    SAHA Cable
    Phelps Dodge
    Siam Pacific

    Hey Fondles don't forget that you are in Thailand ( But that would be the best way )

    Our approved suppliers are only the manufacturers as we normally only buy bulk, however we need shorter lengths for a job in the airport.
    That's why I'm looking for a local supplier with stock

    Yes, they or another big installer may have remains from a previous job.

    This is not a normal stock item for a cable warehouse or supplier and if they accept orders for special characteristic cable then you'll be forced to buy by the length the mfgr delivers in.
    The warehouse/supplier don't want to stock remains for an unforeseeable time - they don't sell per meter.

    The quoted delivery time is a good indication that this cable is manufactured on order and not a mfgr stock item, and if they don't want to stock then there is no chance that a warehouse sees it differently.
    The voices in my head are mostly kind, I also like the music.

    Thanks Baldrick / Lom, Thats the kind of info I was hoping someone in the industry may know about already.

    Possibly a company in the fire industry (alarm cabling/systems or the likes) would carry spare stock but difficult to find
