Rated 5 out of 5Â by JALJ An Excellent Unit
Just read review by "parttimespark" dated 18 Mar 14, with great respect, I find it hard to think that I have just fitted the same unit.
It is the same design as other BG units I have fitted, in fact the enclosure is identical to the BG Garage Unit. It has plenty of room for 25mm tails, 10mm earth and a 10mm T/E feed. The rcd and mcb are identical to those in other BG units I've fitted.
To sum up; if you already satisfied with BG kit, I found no reason to feel otherwise about this product.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by parttimespark poor build quality
I fit BG consumer units, and I fit BG garage consumer units which are pretty much the same thing as this shower unit, but this is the 1st one of these i have fitted and was shocked a how poor the build quality was. bad points: the RCD and MCB look completely different to the rest of the BG stuff i use, it's only recogniseable from the name stamped on it, and they look cheaper.
the screws in the earth and neutral bars are soft, had badly formed heads and some so tight i could not get them in all the way , not even far enough to get hold of a 10mm cable, so i had to use other ways, good job i only had one circuit to connect into this board! and this was using the correct tools, a plus minus driver, and even a big slotted screwdriver but the heads were not properly formed so it just slipped right out as soon as they got tight.
rcd tested very slow, 39 seconds on x5. thats borderline fail. I fit dozens of the consumer units and garage boards and have encountered very few issues with those, so why are these so different?
good points are the board is a good size, nice and easy to get 25mm tails into and 10mm T&E for the circuit.
I think next time i;ll just buy the garage units and a seperate RCD big enought for a shower then I know what i'm getting
