18th edition compliant cable clips from UnicrimpFeatured Products
Posted by: electime 8th September 2021
Unicrimp, part of the Scolmore Group of companies, continues to expand its cable accessories portfolio with new additions to its range of cable clips. The new fire-rated Metal Twin and Earth Cable Clips are 18th edition compliant and will sit within the growing Unicrimp Q-Fire fire-rated range.
The 18th Edition wiring regulations stipulate that cable support systems must be constructed with materials that will withstand premature collapse caused by direct exposure to heat. There are no applications excluded – trunking, conduit and cabling fixed to surfaces of the building or attached to cable support systems must all have fire-resistant supports in place.
These new additions provide installers with an expanded choice of fixing solutions, suitable across a range of applications and environments – helping them to satisfy the latest wiring regulations.
The new fire-rated T&E Cable Clips are manufactured from zinc plated carbon steel and are available in two sizes – 1-2.5mm and 4-6mm – and in a choice of uncoated or with a grey PPA LSF coating. The LSF coating provides long term protection for metal clips, as well as added protection for the cable during and after installation.
