BG 10-Way High Integrity Populated Insulated Consumer Unit Dual 63A RCD
Plastic bad. Metal good!!
I think, Frost, your electrician is right (see earlier review.) If it was fitted from January 2015 onwards, Iâve just been told that consumer boxes must be metal because of the fire risk to plastic units. Seems daft to me because of the increased risk of shorting that a metal box gives but, what do I know? As such, I cannot see how Screwfix can continue to sell this particular consumer unit.

hi frost, this consumer unit is ok, new regs likely to come into force in july 2015 and units must comply with BS EN 61439-3 which this one does so no need to worry. too many 5 day course part p sparks out there, some good but some dont know what their talking about.

Just had this fitted, but have been told by another electrian that the new regs say they now have to be metal since jan 15! Is this correct?

Unbeatable for quality
As an electrician, I have numerous accounts with various wholesalers, and always shop for the best deals.
When it comes to fuseboards however, Screwfix is the undisputed winner by a mile, not only on price but the actual quality of this product, really stylish and modern and more importantly very easy to work with and install.
