    Hi,
    Is the bend rad for 2.5mm T & E 29mm?
    Also, I am routing the above parrallel with a floor joist so i intend clipping to it, length will be approx 2 metres, is every 250mm adequate?

    Thanks for you replies.

    Better to be safe than sorry: So clip that cable every 10mm of that tremendous 2M length. Try not to bend that 2.5mm cable, otherwise it might snap and go BANG!.......

    minimum inside radius bend of 2.5mm T&E is 29.1mm
    maximum(edit) clipping distance of 2.5mm T&E is 250mm on the horizontal and 400mm on the vertical.

    Those are the maximum distances.
    Minimum distance could be, what, the width of a cleat perhaps ;)

    Hammers handle length was taught at BT, and that tends to be a very good rule of thumb.

    Someone would have to be rathaer 4nal to inspect a job and pull you up for being a few centimeters over the 25 cm rule.
