Dear zeeshan ahmed,

Plenum rated cable is manufacture red to meet the codes and standards for cable being run in an air-return plenum. Most codes do not require plenum rated cable if the cable is not passing through this type of space but there are localities that do require it for all runs. Please check with your local authorities.

As far as Nordx manufacturing this cable, it was available here in the USA but I cannot speak for them if it is available in you area. Please contact your local sales rep on this.

Sincerely,
Joseph Golan, RCDD
