• Winter warning on arctic grade flexibles

    The Approved Cables Initiative (ACI) is advising contractors and distributors to check their cable choices carefully following the discovery of significant quantities of substandard arctic grade flex this year.

    December has, to date, seen a continuation of the problem with suspected substandard arctic grade flex found on a central London installation where the cable caught fire (see images). The ACI is renewing its call for a sample of suspect cable to be sent to it for testing as soon as it is discovered.

  • ACI questions cable fitness for purpose

    The Approved Cables Initiative (ACI) believes manufacturers hold the key to helping specifiers make better cable choices.
