Over the course of 2015 and 2016 the electricity industry faces changes to the regulations governing selection and installation practices concerning domestic Consumer Units. Amendment 3 to the 17th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations calls for enhanced fire risk protection in these devices. Specifically, regulation 421.1.201 stipulates that enclosures be manufactured from a non-combustible material with the aim of containing any fire within the enclosure and minimise the risk of any flames escaping.
To address the issue of cable entry into these enclosures and to assist installers and specifiers in conforming to the new directive, Remora Electrical have launched a comprehensive new range of cable glands and seals. The Remora GripLoc Consumer Unit range of glands are designed to ensure the integrity of the enclosure by creating a secure flame path barrier while providing optimum strain relief on the cable.
Available in both Metal (Nickel Plated Brass) and Plastic (Nylon 66). Inserts can be supplied for multiple configurations ranging from 1.0mm² to 16mm² Flat Form cable and 16mm² to 25mm² Tails. Specially designed to fit in M20, M25 and M32 glands buyers can be confident they will be able to offer their customers the greatest chance of compatibility with Amendment 3 metal enclosure consumer units.
A brochure and samples of the new range are available upon request.
