SWA launches new fire clips for fibre optic cables

no comments

SWA has launched a new set of fire clips that are fully compliant with the BS 7671.


The 18th Edition Wiring Regulations prohibit the use of plastic clips or glues in fibre optic cable installations.


SWA’s Firefly Push Grip Clips have a white steel finish and a melting point above 1300 ºC, so fibre optics and other small cables are not left unsupported dangerously after a fire.


Available in two sizes to support 0.9mm and 2.0mm cables, the clips are suitable for fixing in concrete, brick or wood. Once a hole has been drilled, the clips are fitted in seconds using just finger pressure or with the optional plastic fitting tool.


SWA Marketing Manager Colin Fletcher said: “Our single-component Firefly Push Grip Clips are easy to fit and practically invisible once installed, so it is no surprise they have rapidly won an enthusiastic welcome from major UK providers of broadband fibre.”
