How to specify cable cleats

Understand how IEC compliance can mitigate short-circuit disasters and future-proof electrical infrastructure

A KPMG International survey recently found that 78% of surveyed engineering and construction companies believe building project risks are increasing. Clients are challenging engineers to complete projects at an unprecedented pace to realize the return on investment, and the need for infrastructure development in remote and complex environments is increasing. A study by the G20-backed Global Infrastructure Hub and Oxford Economics estimates that $3.7 trillion will be invested in infrastructure every year to meet global demand. It’s no wonder engineering and construction firms are constantly pushing the competitive edge.

To maintain an advantage, it’s paramount to stay at the forefront of safety compliance and best practices. A fundamental move: Specify cable cleats because they assist with electrical system protection. To ensure long-term integrity of electrical infrastructure, follow cable cleat installation standards according to the International Electrotechnical Commission 61914:2015, the most robust standards established globally.


Learning objectives:

  • Common causes of short-circuit events and the damage they can cause to equipment and personnel.
  • Why cable cleats are necessary to mitigate short circuit events.
  • How IEC 61914:2015 differs from the National Electrical Code and provides optimal protection.
  • How to select/specify products according to IEC 61914:2015 to ensure a futureproofed infrastructure and business outcomes.
