SWA’s Firefly Fire Safety Clips win eight awards!

image1SWA’s Firefly Cable Clips have been awarded eight Warrington Fire Safety Certificates for their BS7671 Amendment 3 compliant range of clips.

The Certificates represent a major coup for Firefly as their entire range of inside/outside trunking clips are now proven.

SWA’s Firefly Cable Clips are a unique, spring-loaded design, which embed tighter into substructure as a fire takes hold, making the risk of overhead cables falling almost impossible.

In the tests at Warrington in July using Prysmian Plus fire alarm cable, the clips stayed in place as temperatures reached 930ºC for 120 minutes duration. The comprehensive testing includes a shock and water spray test.

SWA Director, Brian Hands, said: “It is important to our customers and to the UK Fire Services whose lives are put at risk by falling cables that we test the integrity of our clips. We wanted it proven they were 100% reliable at very high temperatures for a recommended period to allow unhindered entry and escape during a building fire.”
