33 - G5 GUIDE TO MECHANICAL PROTECTION CLASSIFICATION

Sets out a classification scheme for wiring systems according to their resistance to the hazards of fire and mechanical damage. Type tests to verify the level of protection provided by a wiring system are given. Intended for reference in other Standards which specify wiring systems with a degree of resistance to damage from fire or mechanical impact.

This Standard sets out a classification system for wiring systems according to their ability to -(a) maintain circuit integrity under fire conditions for a specified period; and(b) maintain circuit integrity against mechanical damage of specified severity.It specifies type tests to determine the performance of the various types of wiring system.NOTE: Elements of a wiring system may need replacement after exposure to a hazard.
