Are Britclips® 18th Edition compliant?

Absolutely, as long as they are installed in accordance with the guidelines of the 18th Edition. You can read our short article which summarises the 18th Edition wiring rules specific to electrical fixings here. Read about Britclips® and the 18th Edition.

Are Britclips® electrical fixings fire rated?

Our Britclips® range are not fire rated. It is a common misconception that cable fixings need to be specifically fire rated. The 18th Edition states that it is no longer acceptable for plastic clips to be the only method used for fixing wiring in entry and exit routes. Instead, suitable ‘metal fixings’ should be used, because metal has a much higher melting point than plastic. There is no actual requirement for a fire rating, just the use of metal clips. You can read more about this in the same article as above.

Do you offer any technical support for electrical installations or projects?

Yes we can. If you need help finding a suitable fixing or if you simply have any questions about our product range you can contact our Technical Support team. They have all of the data available to them to provide you with advice and information. You can contact them through our form or by calling 01295 753400.

All the information you need can be found on our website. On the product pages you can find tables and downloadable data sheets including dimensional information and loadings for each product.
