Do Plenum And Riser Ratings Apply To Coax Cable?

Are there ratings for coax cables similar to Cat5e? I found a great article here "Comprehensive Cabling Guide" and "Plenum vs Riser" just wondering when dealing with Coax and 18/2 if there things that need to be kept in mind while wiring?

In general, building wire is available in riser and plenum types. It is not just a Category cable rating.

So some applications may specify riser coax, plenum siamese, or something similar.

Does that help?
