Launch of innovative Firefly fire safety clips range from SWA

swaSWA has launched a new range of innovative Firefly fire safety clips. These fully meet the requirements of the BS7671:2015 Wiring Regulations to secure all surface cables in escape routes, preventing fire-fighters and people escaping burning buildings from becoming entangled.

The regulations, enforceable from July 2015, prohibit non-metallic clips or plastic trunking as the sole means of support.

The SWA Firefly range builds on the success of its stainless steel cable ties and the recently launched FSC2 steel fire safety clips. Both FSC2 and Firefly clips are approved to BS5839-1 and allow easy fixing through plastic trunking. FSC2 clips are intended for 25mm x 16mm trunking.

The Firefly clips have been developed with a new, flexible design to make them suitable for all popular sizes of plastic trunking. Firefly clips feature rounded ends, preventing damage to cables and injury to electricians.

Their spring-loaded design makes it straightforward to add or remove cables in the months and years after installation. The full range will include a variety of clips to secure cables both inside and outside trunking and conduits.

With more designs and styles being added each month, SWA’s Firefly range is set be the largest and most comprehensive range of fire safety fixings within our industry.
