In the case of fire, a key feature of installation cables involves the uninterrupted supply of power, a signal for alarm and fire protection points and devices for safe evacuation. Therefore, Flame-X 950 conduits, in addition to complying with the requirements of the standards for flame emission, poisonous gases and fumes (see: FlameBlocker), also provide continuity and integrity of the system in case of fire. This is connected with the resistance to fire, water and mechanical damage. These cables are primarily used in: schools, hospitals, tunnels, shopping centres, airports, stadiums, theatres or industrial halls.

The non-combustibility standards met by individual, listed types are:
- IEC (EN) 60331 - determining the circuit continuity during fire within 180 min.;
- EN 50200 - determining the resistance to fire from 15 to 120 minutes with mechanical impact,
- BS 6387 - determining the resistance to fire (C), water (W), mechanical impact (Z),
- BS 8434 - determining the kept continuity during operation of fire, water and mechanical impact at appropriate intervals,
- AS/NZS - determining the integrity of the cabling system during operation of fire, water and mechanical impact,
- NFC 32-070 - determining the circuit continuity during fire at a specified time.
