SC – An ICC Certified Elite Installer was awarded a data cabling contract from a fire district in Bluffton, South Carolina. The district built a new fire station, costing $3.5 million, to serve as a central location for emergency operations. The 10,500 square foot site houses two buildings, five staff, and two trucks. The fire station required a Category 6 (CAT 6) structured cabling system for high-speed data communications.
A total of 111 drops and 15,000 feet of ICC CAT 6 500MHz CMP cable were installed to Permanent Link spec. In the telecom room, the main distribution frame was equipped with CAT 6 48-Port patch panels. Using ICC’s ladder rack runway system, cables were routed from the telecom room to CAT 6 keystone jack outlets.
After the installation, the CAT 6 cabling system was tested to the TIA® spec and registered with ICC’s 15-Year Performance Warranty.
