The widely used Safe-D clip range has been tested by Exova Warrington Fire, confirming compliance to BS5839 part 1 section 26.2e – resistance to fire with mechanical shock and resistance to fire with mechanical shock and water spray – both for 120 minutes. The tests confirmed that Safe-D clips, when containing Enhanced Fire Performance 1.5mm 2 core cables, and subjected to 930°C (+40 -0°C) for 120 minutes at a voltage of 500V rms, enabled the cables to maintain circuit integrity. This is the highest requirement any cable type is liable to ever need, thus more than sufficient for all other cable categories.
Safe-D Clips are manufactured from high temperature steel with a gold passivated finish that withstands mild corrosive elements – in ceiling voids for example. Once fastened directly onto the building structure or fixed within plastic trunking (from 25×16 to 50x50mm), pliable tabs on the Safe-D clip are easily folded to
secure two or more cables. Fixing time is at least halved as one Safe-D clip fits 2 or more cables compared to fixing one cable by each P-clip.
The clips also comply with BS5266 for installation of emergency lighting – especially in retrospective works that become necessary following reassessment of installations carried out to a previous version/standard.
Safe-D30 – 23mm base for popular 2 cable combinations. (2 x 2.5mm T&E, 2 x 1.5mm FP Cables)
Safe-D40 – Can fit 32-40mm trunking bases. Folds to max 20mm height.
Safe-D50 – Can fit up to 50mm trunking bases. Folds to max 30mm height.
