It has been designed with a proprietary jacket material in place of the standard yellow jacket.

The tubing resists a minimum of 4.5 coulombs of arcing energy; more than twice the maximum expected inside a building during an indirect lightning event, the company says. It satisfies plenum installation requirements, with a flame spread index of less than 25 and a smoke developed index of less than 50, and is UL-listed for 1-, 2-, and 4-hour firewall penetrations.
