Designed for larger diameter cables and even suitable for holding conduits, the 18th Edition large cable clips ensure new cable installations are compliant with the latest standards. Available in a range of sizes to suit all cable/conduit sizes between 12 and 25mm, including grouped and armoured cables, the black SuperClip is available in a range of sizes. Designed to securely hold a heavy cable even during a fire, you will have plenty with each pack containing 25 clips.
Designed to prevent firefighter deaths caused by entrapment from falling overhead cabling, it is now a requirement for ALL cable installations to be fire resistant, and no longer just fire alarm wiring or cables along escape routes. Electrical cable installers are ultimately responsible so it is essential that they are up to date with the new regulations.
How do the Cable Clips Work?
Recommended to be installed every 300mm along a cable, the cable clips are suitable for masonry, brick, concrete, blockwork, stone, wood, and plasterboard.
The fastest fire-rated cable clip to install, these require less drilling and zero screwing. They are three times faster to install than traditional methods.
To install the clips, simply drill a 10mm diameter hole with a 40mm depth, slide the fire clip over the cable or conduit so that it is seated in the rounded area, compress the clip together, and then insert into the hole by hand. The clip and cable will be securely held in place no matter what happens. This is made possible thanks to each clip featuring several ‘teeth’ for advanced grip.
With a melting point of over 1000°C, the large SuperClip can boast numerous approvals. Compliant with the requirements of BS 8519:2010 and meeting the recommendations for Fire Rated Cable Fixings BS7671 Amendment 3, these clips are 90-minute and 120-minute fire resistant in accordance with DIN4102-12 and BSEN50200. Manufactured by Linian, the 18th Edition cable clips can resist tensile loads equal to 44kg, meaning it could actually hold two bags of cement. They are also smoke emission tested to London Underground Standard.
