Hi Guys

I have a job for an ICF house and aware that I cannot use standad PVC Cable next to the polystrene unless I install cable containment. This will be very labour intensive as all the ceilings and partion walls are also polystrene, so I would have to put in a complete trunking and conduit system to maintain segregation.
I have found an alternative cable solution called Gaurdian from Irish Driver Harris but this is extremely expensive so I am looking for other alternatives.
I have been told that LSF Cable does not react with polystrene if this is the case then this would solve all my problems as it is not so expensive and wouldn't require installing a full trunking installation. Can anybody confirm for definite that LSF does not react with polystrene and perhaps point to a link where I can check this out.

Regards
AD

Yeah I saw the plastilock system but this ICF house is constructed using floor to ceiling panels approx. 1.5mts wide and so the plastilock system wasnt suitable as it would next to impossible to install it as it seems to be designed more for the ICF BLOCK

Yeah I've seen the plastilock system but this ICF construction used floor to ceiling panels approx 1.5mtrs wide and so the plastilock system wasnt suitable as it would be next to impossible to install as it seems to be designed more for an ICF block construction. Any ideas on LSF not degrading against polystrene?
