nylon braided cables, are they fire safe

I was looking to buy DP 1.4 cables, and I saw the most popular are nylon braided, 

afaik nylon burns really well, are these cables safe,

or how would they compare to usual ones in the fire safety aspect ?

I use nylon braided cables and they are OK, the area behind my server reaches probably around 80C and they have not been visibly damaged in the 2 years I've had them.

Is it plugged in?

that really doesn't say much because melting point of nylon is 256 °C / 492.8 °F which is quite high for thermoplastic material, and is generally considered safe for cables and such, something like Kevlar might be preferable though.

It won't even start melting until 160C. Ignition temp is around 420C. You'll be fine lol

what about this:

https://findanyanswer.com/which-fabric-creates-the-most-static-electricity

 

All fabrics have some tendency to build up a static charge, but synthetics like nylon, polyester and acrylic are particularly good at generating, and then holding on to, static charge.

Braiding would be the outermost layer only. There's at least two layers of insulating plastic/rubber under it. One protecting individual wires, and another protecting the whole package. The braiding is used for the looks, and also because its more flexible than using plastic outer shell.
