High quality Category 5 (CAT5) cable is standard for Gigabit Ethernet protocols. This cable supports up to 350 MHz high speed applications and it is made of 100% bare copper wire.
Featuring 4-pair unshielded twisted pair cable with true 24AWG bare copper solid conductor and flame retardant PVC (Riser Rated), this high performance bulk cabling is perfect for your custom network installation projects including video and data transmission.
Cables to be run between floors in non-plenum areas are rated as RISER cables.
Riser are used in enclosed walls with insulation or without it. Riser wires are used because the wall cavity is enclosed and will contain the smoke from the melting wire if a fire happens.
