Chapter 51 - Common Rules It is the case that compliance with standards requires all electrical equipment to be suitable for the nominal voltage.
Section now refers to the EMC Directive and includes requirements for the designer of the fixed installation. Note that minor modifications have been made to Sections and It provides the requirements for the methods of support of wiring systems in escape routes. The regulations concerning the selection and erection of wiring systems impact have been redrafted.
The new requirements see For this reason, plastic cable clips, non-metallic cable ties and plastic trunking to support wiring systems would likely not comply with the new requirements the word the IET uses in this context is 'precludes' the use of non-metallic supports etc , which apply to all wiring systems in a building, including those of distribution circuits and final circuits, safety services, and data and communications services.
In essence, therefore, wiring systems should be supported in such a way that they will not collapse when affected by fire, especially around escape routes. The sole use of plastic fixings and non-metallic cable ties will no longer comply with the new regulations and rightly so as exposure to fire could result in the melting of trunking and the risk of loose cabling.
Installers should, therefore, look for products — cable ties, cable mounts and other supporting components - that meet high standards of fire resistance, as these will be able to withstand high temperatures and provide durability and strength.
Stainless steel products are ideal where high strength, reliability and fire resistance are needed. Though many installers will see such stainless steel products as being expensive, they do provide the required support, as well as peace of mind. Also under Chapter 52, cables concealed in a wall or partition at a depth of less than 50mm must be protected by a 30mA RCD for all installations - if other methods of protection, including the use of cables with an earthed metallic covering or mechanical protection, are not used.
