Cables for Energy Infrastructure, Private and Commercial Building Construction and Civil Engineerin, Safety Cables an Railways
Since its founding, PRAKAB has been a reliable business partner for several power utility companies (electric utilities). At the moment, PRAKAB possesses a supplier permit to all major electric utilities in central Europe and it can, in most cases, look back on a long-term supplier partnership. Continuous auditing by our partners guarantees consistent high quality of products. Furthermore, we created special portfolio of products that is focused on this customer segment and ensures prompt deliveries at all times.

Private and Commercial Building Construction and Civil Engineering
For decades, surface construction has been the most important field of application for cables and wires produced by PRAKAB. Supply to the end customer is partially carried out by masters, and partially by specialized construction companies. There is a big variety of projects, including private housing construction, as well as large and complex construction projects like office buildings, airports or industrial facilities. Especially with the last category, the challenge lies in delivering a large variety of cable products of different sizes to the construction sites and, of course, delivering them just in time.
In case of underground projects PRAKAB is now facing a similar challenge combined with additional requirements specific to underground civil engineering.
The New Terminal of Pardubice airport

National Museum in Prague
The historic National Museum building has not been significantly repaired since it‘s opening on May 18, 1891, yet it withstood two world wars and one occupation by Russian troops. During these events it suffered considerable damage, which made it necessary to completely renovate the building.
Safety cables are also used at building construction and civil engineering projects, however they have to satisfy a multitude of additional requirements. The simpler products in this group have been developed in such a way that the used materials exhibit specific behavior in the event of fire (e.g. heat development, flammability and emissions of dangerous substances). The second, higher-quality group contains products which are able to maintain their function while burning during a specified period of time. Thanks to PRAKABs long-term R&D experience in the “resistance to fire” area, PRAKAB proudly belongs to a small group of European producers who are able to manufacture both quality classes for this type of safety cables.
The DENSO project
This project specifically used PRAFlaDur® cables designed for fixed power distribution in a normal and humid environment in hotels, hospitals, metro, airports, etc. You can find more informations in the reference sheet!
The OC CHODOV project

The LOVOCHEMIE project
More than 10 km of PRAFlaDur® fire safety cables were delivered to the building, which guarantee the proper functioning of the firefighting equipment and do not contribute to the pollution of the environment. You can find more informations in the reference sheet!
The NEW TERMINAL OF PARDUBICE AIRPORT project
Parubice Airport has been equiped with a fire substation, 35 fire dampers for heat and smoke exhaust, emergency fire lighting, the system CENTRAL STOP and TOTAL STOP, and last but not least, the halogen-free cables PRAFlaSafe® and PRAFlaDur®. You can find more informations in the reference sheet!
The tunnel is equipped with high quality system control technologies such as tunnel closure, CCTV (Closed-circuit television), operational information equipment, ventilation, speed measurement, SOS boxes, fire detection and signal reception. All these technologies are operated by PRAKAB fire-resistant cables of the PRAFla® type.
Despite their long history the railways are nowadays more than ever a significant part of the public transport. Almost all European states continuously invest significant financial resources to adapt their railway networks to the modern standards. Here, PRAKAB is an ideal partner since the company can look back on a long tradition of development. In this customer segment the cable producers like PRAKAB face a challenge of meeting the customer’s specific national standards.
SKB-GROUP is a member of Europacable and signatory of the Europa Industry Charter. The Charter expresses our commitment to shared principles and objectvives of ethical, sustainable and hight-quality cable development and manufacturing.
