Not sure if you need Plenum rated cable? You'll want to check your building codes before performing cable installation in any commercial setting. Our plenum, Category 6 UTP bulk cable is fire retardant. This is most often a requirement for any commercial building such as schools, hospitals and most every place of business. Plenum cable was a name actually derived from an old HVAC term referring to “Plenum spaces”. "Plenum" was a term used for any part of a building that enables air circulation by providing pathways for airflow, think of duct work for air conditioning or central heat. Today, additional spaces such as crawl spaces and dropped ceiling are considered plenum as air can and will circulate in such areas.
The problem is that standard cable is jacketed in PVC, short for Polyvinyl Chloride, and it's the Chloride part that's the real problem. You see when PVC burns it can release toxic fumes into the air, think hydrochloric acid, which is obviously something you don't want to breathe. If standard cable is used in a space such as duct work or any free space that can connect one room to the next then this toxic smoke could potentially circulate throughout the entire building. Because there is obviously the threat of becoming ill (or worse) by simply breathing the smoke from your neighbors burning cable the friendly folks at your local fire department have insisted that you use Plenum rated cable for such installations and thus minimizing the risk.

Seems prices keep going up everywhere on copper but this is still resonable.
Absolutely impressed. They oversold. Not only is this plenum cable actually made in America it's also GSA approved, finally I've found something we can buy. So we get it, and it's actually some of the best cable we've ever used. The price had me concerned at first, thinking it was too good to be true, that there was no way this was plenum made in the US but I was wrong. Even the packaging seems better, everything about it is top notch I would highly reccomend this product.
We have tried cable from over a dozen suppliers, some good, some selling garbage (think CCA) but these guys are great to work with, honestly want out business and offer a great product. Having worked with them for over a year now I'm still impressed.
Very well priced, packaged and performing.
