||The methods described in various German and international standards for determining pyrolisis products, fire spread and smoke emission when electric cables and lines are on fire are outlined. Results are presented of comparative studies using these methods on the fire behaviour of halogen-free cables and polyvinyl-chloride-coated cables. Halogen-free cables produced no corrosive substances and less smoke, while when they were used fire spread more slowly.
