Smart buildings & IoT Smart buildings are now designed for more than merely keeping out the elements, residents expect the latest technology and comfort in this modern age. With a large diversity of smart devices, Wi-Fi and data centres cable management has never been more crucial to keep smart buildings functioning efficiently. Whether a business is constructing a new


premises, or adapting an existing location, it’s beneficial to consider at a reasonably early stage how the building’s cabled nervous system will be installed or adapted.


Safety & regulations As cable management adapts so do the regulations, ensuring all safety standards are met when working in a modern environment. However, keeping up with the recent regulations as they change is a vital part of workplace safety whilst changing with the times.


John Brodie, Product Manager at


HellermannTyton, comments on the latest regulation change, the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, and what that means for cable management:


“Cable management is important in many


fields, such as IT, communications, power distribution, facility wiring, local area networks and much more. Keeping all occupants safe whilst out on the job is imperative, working to the most recent regulations ensures all bases are covered within the workplace. “In January 2019, the 18th Edition of the IET


Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) came into force. While previous IET wiring regulations referred to “escape routes”, the new regulations have now expanded the scope of coverage to include “access or egress routes”, meaning both entry routes in and exit routes out of the building are covered.


ewnews.co.uk October 2019 electrical wholesaler | 25 “When fixing cables to exposed surfaces


vertically and horizontally, the spacing of metal fixings should be approximately 250-400mm. HellermannTyton does not recommend that plastic fixings are used as the only method of fixing and should only be used in addition to sufficient metal fixing. “In addition to BS 7671, there are other


standards to consider for new installations. BS 5839 gives recommendations for fire detection devices and fire alarm systems for buildings and BS 5266 gives recommendations for emergency escape lighting. “Both standards recognise the danger of collapsing cable supports in a fire, a danger


which will be reduced with the introduction of the requirement of metal fixings in the 18th Edition. “HellermannTyton has an in-house design
