Data cable in PVC in schools

Can low voltage wire, such as data cable be ran through sch. 40 PVC (for aesthetic reason, using it as a cable run) in a non suppressed school building. There was concern with the PVC giving off toxic fumes if subject to heat or flame.

My first thought was, all the plastic in the building would give off some form of toxic fumes, why would the PVC be any different.

 

Thanks Tom
