Ellis goes underground with fire rated cleats

Ellis has received London Underground (LUL) approval for its Phoenix range of fire proof cable cleats.

Designed specifically for installation with fire protection (FP) rated cables, the cleats are manufactured in 316L stainless steel and are fire proof and corrosion resistant

The range was granted full LUL 1-085 approval and has been added to the London Underground Approved Products Register as product 1661.

To achieve this it complied with standard 1-085 A2 for Fire Safety Performance Materials having met the following parameters for electro-technical components:

Limiting Oxygen Index to BS EN ISO 4589-2:1999

Smoke Emission to BS 6853:1999, Annex D.8.3

Toxic fume emission to NFX 70-100:2008

Andrew Booth, development manager of Ellis, said, ‘Maintaining the London Underground network is a multi-million pound process, which involves hundreds of different projects every year. As a manufacturer for the electrical industry we feel it is imperative that all our suitable products can be considered for these jobs, and to do so they have to receive LUL approval. While this can be a lengthy process, it is always worth the effort.’
