Abstract. The purpose of this work was to assess the influence of multi-core cables construction on their fire properties determined when the bunch of cables was burned, and determination of their flammability class. Seven-core cables with a 1.5 mm2 single core cross-section were selected for the tests. These cables consist of two types of insulation materials, four types of filling materials and three types of coating materials.
