    1.5mm2 fp200 cpc size?

    probably a daft question to most of you, but in an 1.5mm fp200 is the cpc the same size or is it 1mm because my supervisor has told me it is the same as t&e but I’m pretty sure it is the same size :/ I’m trying to find it in the on-site guide.. Thanks Adam.

    White FP external use

    Hi, Had a look at a job today and noticed external lighting had been wired in white FP, clipped to wall surface. I informed them mechanical protection must be provided and they insisted the board had RCD protection and it wasn't required. Anyone else seen this before.

    Voltage drop for fp200

    Can FP 200 be burried in the wall without RCD???

    Hi. We are looking to quote to install domestic heat detectors interconnected to the existing smoke alarms for a social housing provider.
