MIDFIX, introduces a flameproof range of cable accessories to help electrical contractors comply with the latest changes in the 18th edition wiring regulations.
The comprehensive range features more than 20 fully compliant products including the firm’s unique firesafe tie mount, which has a patent pending for its innovative design.
Developed in-house by MIDFIX’s product development team, the new firesafe tie mount features cable friendly rounded edges and a clever snap-off tab for holding and positioning the mount during installation. They can be used with all cordless nailing tools, removing the need to change noses and making fitting quick and easy.
MIDFIX’s Managing Director, Adrian Fowler, said, “We listened to what our customers wanted and have worked hard to develop one of the most extensive ranges of 18th edition compliant cable fixings currently available. We recognise that the new rules are a significant change for the industry and we wanted to create a one stop shop, making it easy for contractors to get hold of everything they need to ensure compliance under one roof.”
As well as the firesafe tie mount, the flameproof range includes accessories such as cable harnesses, push mounts, fire rated cable clips and economically priced steel cable ties.
Adrian added, “MIDFIX is about delivering economically priced solutions and this new range is no different. Every product has been carefully chosen to ensure it not only meets our standards but is quick and easy to use on site, so our customers see both financial and efficiency benefits.”
The 18th edition regulations have been implemented in response to a number of fatal, fire-related incidents where people have been trapped by falling cables and alters the way cables are fixed throughout buildings. The new rules came into force on 1st January 2019 and apply to all installations designed from that date onwards.
