what is everyone using for fastening cables up with to meet with the new 18th edition changes? I've just quoted a job that has to be mostly surface trunked, so steel cable ties are out. I have just found some clips that go in the trunking, D line clips they're called. Has anyone used these before, and how much of a faff are they?

No know jack about them , everyone here has used them plenty 

 

But fastening cables depends on where and how , I still see steel cables above voids , metal trunking in communial walk ways or plastic with d clips or other fixings

I like the idea of the nailer, think that's going to have to be a definite investment.  I take it it can be used to fire nails in for the D clips as well, the pirelli's look good for fire cable, I'm thinking more along the lines of fixing alarm/Beldon/data cable.

Yes but becareful of the predrilled hole size of the dclip. Also can use plclips without predrilled holes when hidden. I was also meaning for other cable types

 

Most of the clips are plastic however

 

I think the 800 replaced the above
