Metal Nail Clips
Metal Nail Clips
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. 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.
Richard Rands, Product Manager at HellermannTyton, explained: “Our ongoing challenge is to deliver solutions which help our customers to carry out their jobs quickly, safely and efficiently. The introduction of the new wiring regulations has implications for our customers and the industry and here we have demonstrated our responsiveness to an important industry development to best support our growing customer base. Drawing on our industry-leading manufacturing and design capability, we have provided a solution which satisfies the requirements of the new legislation. The wider commercial benefits through enhanced efficiency are also there for all to see.’
