Safety Hook Extreme
While our Safety Hook is a high quality product, CableSafe’s engineering team found a way to improve it. That is why we are proud to introduce our new Safety Hook: the Safety Hook Extreme. The development of this Safety Hook Extreme is done in cooperation with a Norwegian oil & gas multinational. The Safety Hook Extreme is manufactured with glass reinforced PBT and is UV stabilized, Flame Retardant (class: 94V-0, Flame Class Rating 3) and Cold Weather rated.
British Standard recently adopted the Requirements for Electrical Installations [BS7671:2018] for the electrical design industry. This standard is developed after the death of two firefighters at Harrow Court, Hertfordshire, in 2005. The two firefighters got entangled as a result of the collapse of an electrical installation during a fire. The implemented standard states that it requires cables to be adequately supported against their premature collapse in the event of a fire. Installations designs from 2019 onwards have to comply with this new standard. This has implications for personnel involved with design, erection and verification of electrical installations. Our Safety Hook Extreme is developed with this standard in mind.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. OSHA claims that fire safety must be everyone’s job at a worksite. Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace and on what to do in a fire emergency [OSHA Part 1926.150, Subpart F]. During a fire hazard it is of vital importance to suspend cables and hoses of the work floor to prevent slip, trip and fall accidents. That is why we made our Safety Hook Extreme flame retardant.
In the European Union (EU), the product ‘cable’ was added to the Construction Product Regulation (CPR) in 2017. Thereby, creating an obligation to classify cables according to fire behaviour in order to be able to market them in Europe for use in buildings [NEN8012:2015]. The EU recognizes the danger of fire due to unsafe cables. Cables must be flame retardant, so should Safety Hooks be.
