process of continuous improvement. The enhancements include new generations of straight and right-angled connectors. The insulators in the new ranges are made of improved


plastics that provide increased insulation resistance of up to 15 kV and a lower degree of flammability. They meet European rail applications standard EN 45545-2, including the most stringent HL3 R23 hazard level class for underground and high speed trains. The insulation, combined with a new zinc die-cast alloy

used for the side elements, has allowed the units to be more compact, with weight reductions of up to 30% over previous models while remaining 100% compatible. With ratings of 3600 V and up to 700 A, the units can be

used for connecting transformers, traction motors, inverters and batteries as well as power links between carriages.

he latest addition to ESP’s growing external security lights category is a range of modern, ultra slim, low-

energy LED floodlights, which have been designed to meet the growing trend for a stylish, more aesthetic lighting solution than the bulky options often associated with floodlights. The new NightHawk Plus range comprises a total of eight

products which offer a choice of wattage/lumen outputs to ensure a solution for a broad range of applications, from small walkways, through to large gardens and work yards. The range offers 10W/800 lumen, 20W/1600 lumen, 30W/2400 lumen and 50W/4000 lumen fittings, with each one available

as a straightforward floodlight and as a PIR version. The standard fitting is switched on and off manually or can be wired into an external device - such as a digital

timer – and is suitable where control of the lighting system is preferred. ESP

o help meet the requirements of the updated BS 7671 IET

Wiring Regulations, Marshall- Tufflex has extended its range of Firefly fire clips. In the event of a fire the clips are designed to prevent cables falling and creating a hazard – providing a safer evacuation and allowing easy access for fire service crews.

The Firefly range now includes clips suitable for use on Marshall- Tufflex Maxi, Mono, Twin165, Twin Plus, Sterling Profile, Sterling Curve and Odyssey trunking systems. The clips fix to walls or ceilings and with a spring-loaded design are quick and easy to install. The Firefly fire clips are fire

resistant above 1000°C for up to 120 minutes and feature rounded ends to prevent damage to cables and injury to installers, and the design optimises the usable space within the trunking. The range includes both internal versions that are fitted within the trunking prior to cable installation and externally fitted variants for a fast and simple retrofit.

The previous IET Wiring Regulations required that all wiring on escape routes be protected from premature collapse during a fire. The 18th Edition of the regulations published in 2018 extends this requirement to the entire installation.

Nick Hayler, Technical and Product QA Manager at Marshall-Tufflex has worked extensively with BEAMA on fire safety including chairing a committee on the issue of premature collapse. The committee aims to clarify the definition of ‘premature collapse’ and is in the process of drafting guidance for specifiers and installers to help achieve compliance.
