18th Edition Compliant Cable, Clips and Fixings

The 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations 2019 (BS7671) came into force on 1st January 2019 and contained significant changes that relate directly to fire safety and the performance of installations should a fire occur. All cables throughout an installation (not just in escape routes) should be secured with fire resistant cable supports and fixings, i.e. fully metallic cable clips, ties, and fixings, including within plastic cable management systems.

We recommend installers also refer to the Prevention of Premature Collapse Guide published by BEAMA in May 2021, which provides spacing details for cable supports and maximum physical load allowances for cable management.
