    Are there any special regulations or procedures to follow when running cables through studwalls/ceilings/floors, that either have 100mm or 140mm Celotex insulation fitted ?

    The cables are for upstairs power, lights, showers & Jacuzzi, so can I channel the insulation so there is an inch space for the cables to run through.

    I'm in a similar situation. So I can bury the cables underneath the plasterboard in the insulated part (clipped to the wall) without any conduit or other protection (assuming the cables are run in safe zones vertically or horizontally.) Is that correct.
