Adhering to modern methods of construction With the rapid pace at which new buildings are being constructed as modern methods of construction such as modular continue to grow in popularity, electrical engineers and installers are finding the time they are allowed on site decreasing. As a result, there is a growing demand for cable tie applications and fixings that are quicker and more convenient to install. For many electricians, the plastic P clip is the default application for permanent or semi-permanent cable fixings.
