Houston Wire & Cable Company Introduces New Cable That Produces Low Smoke and No Acid Gas During a Fire
HOUSTON, Dec. 5, 2006 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- In the event of a fire, Houston Wire & Cable Company's (Nasdaq:HWCC) innovative LifeGuard(tm) line of low-smoke, zero-halogen cable produces just trace amounts of smoke and acid gas -- two leading contributors to compromised safety and expensive equipment failures. LifeGuard(tm) provides significant flame resistance, minimal smoke production and substantially reduced toxicity and corrosiveness when burned as compared to traditional wire and cable. In addition, unlike some cables, LifeGuard(tm) components are classified as non-hazardous materials, resulting in a safer user environment and eliminating the need for expensive future hazardous waste disposal.
