Specialist shares three things to look for when testing electrical cables 

In an office environment it doesn’t take long for the work space to become cluttered, files stack up, boxes get put in piles and electrical cables suddenly resemble an uncontrollable spaghetti junction.

 

The Approved Cables Initiative (ACI) has been alerted to a batch of low smoke flex, found with a `BASEC approved’ sticker on its packaging that is not BASEC approved and this has been brought to BASEC’s attention.

With the terms LSF and LSHF often interchanged due to the misconception that they are acronyms for the same thing, the ACI is telling contractors and installers to be cautious of cable labelled or described as LSF as this does not mean “halogen-free”.
