Metal nail clip ensuring full compliance with BS7671 wiring regulations

Following the introduction of the updated regulations in July 2015, which stipulate the use of metal clips within the escape routes of buildings, there has been an increased demand for metal fixings. 

Metal nail fixing solutions provide a quick and simple way of securing cables to meet the requirements of BS7671, which imposes the use of metal fixings to secure wiring systems within the escape routes of buildings. These fire resistant clips improve safety by ensuring that cabling will not collapse in the event of a fire.

Accordingly, the metal nail clip from HellermannTyton ensures compliance and maximum safety as the cabling will remain securely fastened in the event of a fire thanks to its unique flex design.

Up until recently, plastic nail systems were commonly used to perform this role, yet these have a tendency to disintegrate when exposed to extreme temperatures, making them a potential safety hazard.

The launch of the metal cable clip further reinforces HellermannTyton’s reputation for flair and innovation. The company worked in close collaboration with a number of industry-leading clients to develop a solution which fully meets the needs of the market.

Using patented HellermannTyton technology, the metal cable clips come in a range of sizes, colours, and coatings to suit the varied demands of commercial and non-commercial buildings. Furthermore, they are available in different sizes, meaning they can accommodate a number of wire sizes. The integrated nail and clip design simplifies the installation process – requiring only a hammer – meaning installers can mount multiple cables quickly and efficiently with minimal fuss and cost.
