Safe-D Fire Rated Cable Clips

Safe-D Clip

Safe-D® Clips are fully certified to satisfy legislative requirements to secure all surface cables in escape routes. When used with appropriate fixings they can securely hold bundles of cables on a surface at 970ºC for at least 2 hours.

The publication of Amendment 3 to the 17th Edition (BS7671:2015) Wiring Regulations states (in Chapter 52 - Selection and Erection of Wiring Systems) under section 521.11 that after 1st July 2015 "Wiring systems in escape routes shall be supported in such a way that they will not be liable to premature collapse in the event of fire."

In Note 1, there is particular reference to failure of non-metallic trunking leading to cables hanging across access/egress routes & hindering evacuation/fire-fighting activities.

In Note 2, it specifically prohibits the use of non-metallic clips, cable ties or plastic trunking as the sole means of support. Where a non-metallic cable trunking is used, a suitable fire-resistant means of support must be provided to prevent cables falling into escape routes and causing potentially fatal entanglements.

    Safe-D Clips Test & Certification - Conclusion (extract)...

"The test results demonstrate that the cable retaining clips do not reduce the circuit integrity below that afforded by the standard fire resisting cable used, and that they withstand a similar temperature and duration to that of a standard fire resisting cable, while maintaining adequate support. Consequently, the test results demonstrate that the clips meet the requirements of section 26.2 e) of BS 5839-1."
