NOTE 3: Values are given for vertical spacing between cable trays of 300 mm and at least 20 mm between cable trays and wall. For closer spacing the factors should be reduced. NOTE 4: Values are given for horizontal spacing between cable trays of 225 mm with cable trays mounted back to back. For closer spacing the factors should be reduced. NOTE 5: For circuits having more than one cable in parallel per phase, each three-phase set of conductors is to be considered as a circuit for the purpose of this table.

This can be true despite checking catalogues and data sheets as well as rating plates and this contributes to overdesign. More often than not, actual connected loads are 50–70% of the quoted value. The watts per square metre method can be used to produce an overall maximum demand estimate, alongside information on known loads, or it can be used solely to produce an estimate. The watts per square metre method involves comparing the installation type and size with a watts per square metre ‘normal’ table.

It should be noted that some 17th Edition tables include a certain amount of thermal insulation and where these are used no further correction should be made. For example, new Table 4D5, included due to ECA suggestion, includes thermal insulation for cables in loft-roof spaces, and the Ci correction should not be used as it is already in the It value. Cc is for semi-enclosed fuses to BS 3036. A cable with tabulated current-carrying capacity (Iz) is then selected such to exceed the It (step 3). 2.
