Let’s get started!

Often required in building construction, the Plenum rating signifies that a cable has passed strict burn testing and is suitable for installation into Plenum spaces – the area where environmental air is transported, such as above a suspended ceiling or below a raised floor without closed air ducts for the HVAC system to transport air. When a CMP solution is required, rest assured Monoprice has over 40 CMP Plenum rated UL listed options to fit your specific needs.

Here are some of our top solutions:


For customers who don’t want to hassle with building Ethernet cables, save yourself some time by using our fixed-length snagless RJ45, 550Hhz, UTP, CMP, Plenum, Pure Bare Copper Wire, 23AWG Cat6 Ethernet network cables. This cable comes in Blue, and lengths ranging from 10ft up to 100ft! Just imagine the possibilities with less work. These are great when you need Plenum and don’t want to terminate your own cables.

For bulk cables and longer runs, Monoprice’s CMP-rated Cat6 Ethernet Bulk Cable is for you. The cable is made from 100% pure copper wire, 550MHz bandwidth, and 23AWG.

Compared with traditional copper wire, SlimRun AV HDR is not only longer, softer, and slimmer, but also offers better signal quality without the need for external power. Ideal for in-wall installation in the plenum air spaces of commercial and residential buildings.  SlimRun AV HDR CMP Plenum rated is the highest performance CMP Plenum rated HDMI cable available in the market.   Like all Monoprice cables, these also come with a Lifetime Warranty.
