You might not have heard of LINIAN - here’s why their products are so important…

Because believe it or not, your life could depend on it… You probably don’t give that much thought to the building you sit or work in on a day to day basis. However, in the event of a fire, your life could depend on the building being equipped with the correct fire resistant cabling and accessories. It’s essential that cables are adequately supported to avoid the premature collapse in the event of a fire. When it comes to fire fixing clips (the product that is used to hold the cable in place), LINIAN both invented and manufacture the ‘Only’ metal fastener fixing on the market. As the result of years of advanced technical research and direct experience, the LINIAN Fire Clip offers some major advantages. What makes the LINIAN Fire Clip unique The unique Organic coating means it gives off a low smoke halogen emission. This effectively means it will withstand temperatures of over 200°C. It has been salt spray tested to 500 hours so it doesn’t melt. It’s also 70% more efficient than the standard ‘’P’ clips currently on the market. It's a faster alternative to competitor products currently available and it doesn’t compromise installation – it’s even neater than is currently available. It has been tested to all (and more) applicable standards. In a market and industry where price is a consideration, this product can save both time and money. It's simple yet effective and it’s made in the UK to the highest quality (Read about our Made in Britain status). There’s also no need for gas guns or disposal of cylinders. Worldwide, LINIAN fire clips are the preferred professional response to labour intensive products. In a fast-paced, solutions-driven industry, where maximum reliability and quality are pivotal, LINIAN is the ultimate, most efficient answer. Ian Arbuckle, Managing Director at LINIAN had this to say: ‘LINIAN is a progressive Research & Development centred cable management business who have developed a solution that not only complies with the current standards but also the imminent changes to the BS7671 IET Wiring Regulations (18th Edition). This forthcoming change will make it compulsory to use metal cable fixings within the whole installation and not only on fire resistant cables. Many engineers and installers may now be wondering how to meet these standards while maintaining their margins and making the most efficient use of their time. LINIAN are happy to offer advice on how we can we make them compliant’. With over 140 stockists (with distributors throughout the UK as well as in Estonia, Lithuania, Lativa, Russia and Cape Town), LINIAN are rapidly and continually growing a global network.
