This technical bulletin explores the impact of painting fire detection and fire alarm system cables, highlighting its potential impact on cable integrity, fire resistance and other possible hazards during a fire incident. Whilst water-based paints pose less risk than oil-based paints, they may still jeopardise fire resistance and release harmful gases. The act of painting may lead to manufacturers not assuring long-term fire resistance of the cables post-painting.
