A GUIDE TO AUTHENTIC LINIAN PRODUCTS: How to spot the real deal, and ensure peace of mind

August 2020

At LINIAN, we are extremely proud of our simple innovations which can save time, money, and lives. We invented the FireClip, the original single component fire-rated fixing, and our ranges have continued to expand to accommodate multiple applications with over 100 products. However, we know that there are other cable fixing options available on the market and making the best, informed, and compliant choice can be confusing.

To help you, the installers or resellers, to spot the real deal, authentic LINIAN products, and understand why it’s important to choose LINIAN for guaranteed peace of mind, we’ve put together the following list of key features. Check it out below:


Look out for the LINIAN logo with the LINIAN dragon and shield design on our packaging. Our motto is FASTER, SAFER, SIMPLER and we stand by these principals in all the products we produce.


LINIAN’s single-component clips are up to 3 x Faster than traditional methods. Simply wrap around the cable, compress, and insert into the hole. There’s no need to mess around with screws, plugs, washers or cleats.


CLOSED HEAD LOOP:The patented LINIAN design includes a closed head/loop to secure the cable. If there is any tension on the wire, the clip can’t pop open and release the cable, so it won’t let you down when you need it the most.

BARBED LEGS: LINIAN clips feature barbed legs which expand and grip the substrate, providing a secure fixing. Technology that has been developed over time using our experience spanning 124 years of working specifically with fixings. The legs are strong but flexible, so they won’t snap under pressure, unlike other, brittle clips which may break. LINIAN’s barbed legs work with brick, concrete, wood, and even plasterboard!


It is important that clips securely support cables to prevent risk of premature collapse of cables in the event of a fire. LINIAN FireClips, T&E Clips and Coaxial clips can all support a tensile load of 24kg. SuperClips can support up to a whopping 44kg! These guys are STRONG for a reason!


Last year, LINIAN invested in a state-of-the-art coating plant. We are now able to coat LINIAN clips and other small parts to any RAL colour with our corrosion resistant – UV Stable paint. Not only does this paint provide a professional, chip-resistant finish that can match any cable colour, but as with all our products and materials, it has also passed rigorous safety testing. LINIAN clips are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.


LINIAN clips have been extensively tested to the following criteria:

  • >1000oC melting point
  • Meets 90 minute fire time in accordance with DIN4102-12
  • Meets 120 minute fire time in accordance with BSEN50200
  • Compliant with the requirements of BS 8519:2010
  • Salt spray tested to 1000 hours
  • Smoke emission tested to London Underground Standard
  • Meets recommendations for Fire Rated Cable Fixings BS7671 18th Edition

We’re happy to provide certification documents and to assist with any specified project requirements.


When LINIAN products are specified, we understand that sometimes it’s easier to source or offer an alternative product, but normally, we find that LINIAN has been specified for a reason.  Would you feel comfortable using or offering an alternative which could fail when it’s needed most? Equal or approved products guarantee your business.


Finally, LINIAN is a family-run business. All LINIAN products are designed and manufactured in the UK using the best quality materials, providing local employment opportunities, and supporting the British manufacturing industry. Look out for the Made in Britain logo on LINIAN packaging.
