In 2018, a reason raised consistently by international contractors for not using MI cable is the perceived high level of skill required to correctly install it. Skills gaps within contractor teams and the frequent migration of personnel in and out of projects may result in a poor install and a bad
experience for both the contractors’ management teams & installing engineer.
The impact of this negative experience impacts directly on the generic reputation of MI Cable, can detract from its immense and unbeaten fireproof performance capability, and becoming a barrier for use. Ultimately this may encourage the use of inferior fire resistant cables, which in turn may place structures and the people working, commuting or living in them at increased risk of harm.
As a leading global, and the UK’s only specialist manufacturer of MI Cable, Wrexham Mineral Cables and its dedicated sales and distribution teams have been working hard to address this imbalance.
A global and on-going programme of on site and in field installation and best practise workshops continue to be delivered. This FREE Service is designed to focusing on the safe, effective and easy installation of MIC Cable where its needed most, at grass root installer level.
This has been tremendously well received and has seen the Export Team clocking up the air miles markets in recent months with training completed in Asia, the Middle East and India.
Not only that, but the UK factory continues to develop its UK and in-house training programme and its support of UK colleges. A number of training visits have been made by and to NVQ Level 3 Electrical engineering students from across the UK.
Correct installation of an MI Cable provides a lifetime of maximum performance.
In safety-critical or circuit integrity applications like Fire, Heat or Smoke detection systems, this is time and money well spent.
