New essential electrical safety accessory wins 2 prestigious Electrical Industry Awards

– Industrial product of the year award

– Residential/Domestic product of the year award

This new UK-made Electrical Safety Innovation helps protect lives, homes and businesses against electrical connection fires.

The push-on clips highlight heated connections at their early stage of development before they reach temperatures capable of damaging PVC insulation and long before they are capable of causing a fire.

Using a newly developed masterbatch from LCR Hallcrest, the injection moulded clips change colour permanently from purple to pink  if they heat up in excess of a safe temperature.


Heated electrical connections can easily lead to fire and are one of the main causes of electrical fires in homes and businesses.  This is especially prevalent in consumer units / distribution boards and intake electrical equipment.


Permanent colour change and 24/7 monitoring of electrical connections provide a brand new safety feature for periodic electrical inspections.

The permanent colour change enables identification of heated connections that may not be seen during normal inspections of electrical installations due to the possibility that any affected connections may be cooled due to being off-load at the time of an inspection.
