Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH or sometime called LSOH) cable jacketing is composed of low-smoke, halogen-free materials. This means LSZH cable emits limited smoke and no halogens when exposed to fire.
- No Halogen means that the cable does not produce any toxic combination of gas, acid and smoke when exposed to fire.
