Im wiring up my new build, I have an industrial sparkie background so first time for me in a couple of decades domestic new build. The domestic sparkie I had to work with me has gone down with the man flu this week so am plodding ahead.
In the old days everything was pin clipped but I noticed people using nails to support runs, guess its quicker?
Anyhow if I am running a cable beside truss supported by ceiling battens, and ceiling height above 600 mm does it still need to be clipped? If its yes as I think it is, are nails considered a valid cable support?
Or are people just using nails to assist with a quicker prewire then replacing with pin clips afterwards?
Next question how do you branch of the truss perpendicular, say to a light?
Thanks for any advice, I'm aware even a first year apprentice would know this, but my only resource apart from this site is probably lying in bed watching the block nz.
