LINIAN – A proud family business which was established in Glasgow in 2006
LINIAN is a proud family business which was established in Glasgow in 2006 by current directors Wes and Jean Arbuckle. The business is named after their two children, Lynne and Ian, who joined the business in August 2015.
LINIAN was born when a customer requested available alternatives to the existing, labour intensive P-clip method. After months of hard work and research, the life-saving product – the LINIAN Fire Clip was born. Like everything LINIAN does as a business, they wanted this product to be the best in the world so they subjected the product to endless and rigorous testing to make sure it really is the fastest, safest and simplest Fire Clip on the market.
LINIAN knows customers absolutely love the product because the feedback received is overwhelmingly positive. Their main challenge is getting it out there to as many people as possible. LINIAN really believe it’s the best kept secret in the construction industry!
About the LINIAN Fire Clip
The LINIAN Fire Clip is a time-saving alternative for installing fire resistant cables on brickwork, concrete, masonry, wood studs and wood beams compared to conventional methods. Perfected through years of development, this exceptional innovation looks simple – and it is. Expertly designed to save time, money and lives, this extraordinary evolution of a vital building component can ensure that every job is neater, tidier and more effective than ever.
Although it was primarily produced for installing security and fire alarm cabling, LINIAN have noticed an ever-increasing demand to use the product for other applications including Building Management System/control cabling, security and access control, low voltage flexible cabling, extra-low voltage cabling and data and network cabling.
To date they have sold 2 million LINIAN Fire Clips and it’s already been used for a range of high profile projects including the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow University and by companies such as Abel Alarms and Pointer.
The clip is available in red, black and white and is available as a 6-8mm single, a 9-11mm single and a 6-8mm double (the double holds two cables). Due to customer demand, we have also just added the new 9-11 double (for enhanced soft skin cabling).
