    Anyone know of any clips that'll meet the expanded scope of new regs concerning clipping cables (not just trunking only clips). Have used D-Line ones just wondering if there were other options people had tried (obviously there are other things you can use other than clips, but my question is specifically about clips).

    Have yet to get a clear answer on interspacing normal clips and fire rated clips, what ratio is suitable?

    also on older installs you had the metal buckles, still find them on older installs. only pic and link i could find on google is this on that john ward of youtube fames website. quite an interesting site as it happens. wouldnt be surprised if we dont see these buckle style clips come back into fashion as they are quicker to use than metal cable ties. also very cheap and can be nailed or screwed as necessary.

    Search for linian, they do fire rated clips. Not cheap though!

    Hilti do red metal clips for fire alarm FP200 type cables.
    Fix them to the wall etc with a spit gun, take two cables.
    May be able to get them in other colours.

    I expect if they take off again then the price will come down as the wholesalers will stock them in bulk £18 give or take with the vat per 100... isnt too bad. Factor in postage. Reckon it would be better to get a larger size so you are covered for different cables rather than a pack of each.

    Must admit I find that all purpose fixing band a proper nasty solution.

    Nasty but cheap, all those fire rated fixings are extortionate in price. Seeing as it’s a reg the manufacturers must be rubbing their hands together.

    Used to use some cable friendly all round band years ago. Had a very thick rubbery powder coat on it. All you seem to get now is a thin paint coat.
    Anyone know where to get the good stuff ?
