REHAU launches new fire clip

  • 16 Aug 2019

REHAU’s new fire clip set provides fire-resistant cable support compliant with the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations.

The 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations now require all private and public buildings to ensure wiring systems are sufficiently supported against premature collapse in the event of a fire. 

The changes apply to all non-metallic cable trunking systems, and though PVC trunking systems are still acceptable, standard cable clips or ties are no longer suitable as the sole means of cable support.

Where PVC or non-metallic trunking systems are used, an additional fire-resistant means of support and retention is mandatory.

The updated model is based on the already-established LINIAN Push-fit Fire Clip, which REHAU has adapted to meet these new requirements. The new fire clip is fitted with fire-rated stainless-steel cable-ties to contain the cables.

The resulting design is suitable for all REHAU cable trunking systems. One fire clip can carry two cable ties, which can in turn secure cables in two cable compartements, such as with the REHAU PROFILA Data.

The installation of the fire clip is extremely simple – installers only need to drill a small hole through the trunking into the wall, where the fire clip can then be pushed through.

Once the wiring is complete, the cabling is secured by attaching and threading the stainless steel cable ties through the fire clip.

Franz Huelle, Head for Technical for Building Solutions at REHAU, commented: “The safety of those who utilise buildings containing our products is paramount.

“We are therefore extremely proud to meet these new 18th Edition regulations, and reassure customers our new LINIAN fire clips and trunking systems will keep wires contained and reduce risks posed by hanging cables in the awful event of fire.”
