Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this for my garage, easy to install, but no instructions in box. Had to use youtube video as this was first time I had installed a consumer unit. Looks good. Only minor issue did not come with cable fixings, gromets not much good, and had to drill out cable holes (could not push out) which left a sharp edge to be filed down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BG Specifically Safe Needed to update my garage electrics. Considered numerous units and the BG seemed to tick all boxes although I swapped out the 32a breaker for a 16a breaker costing <£4.

Can I add an additional 32A fuse for a second ring main?

Asked by: KennyDIY
Hi KennyDIY, There _is_ space for an additional device in the enclosure, but depending on predicted circuit loads you might need to consider replacing the supplied 40A RCD with a 63 or 80A rated version to avoid overloading issues.

Does the RCD protect ALL the circuits. Ideally I want to fit this to my garage. One circuit would be used for electric doors and I don&rsquo;t want to risk nuisance tripping on that circuit. What additional 10A MCB would be appropriate for the door circuit?

Asked by: Asia
Hi Asia, Yes, the RCD is the incoming connection point for the power feed so protects all outgoing circuits from leakage events. Our code for your required MCB would be either CUMB10 (for a B trip curve model) or CUMC10 (for a C curve version).

Appropriate RCD Rating?

Hi all, I've added an extra 32A MCB which gives me a total of 1 x 6A, 2 x 32A and the current RCD installed is 40A. Do I need to replace my RCD so it's more or equal to the MCB's Amps ratings added together? Thanks, Sam
Asked by: Stravvy
Hi Stravvy, If you are ever likely to be running more than the stated 40A capacity through the RCD then this could cause damage to the internals and may cause faulty operation or no operation at all, so replacing with a 63 or even 80A rated equivalent would be the best option.

Double tapped MCB

Hi, Can you buy a double MCB for this consumer unit to allow doubling up terminal connections on one MCB
Asked by: Grapedoor
Hi Grapedoor, No, we don't make any MCBs like that, so if you have more than 3 circuits to install then you would need to opt for a larger board.

Can this be powered from an MCB

What rating MCB is best to power this consumer unit if using a run of 10mm SWA over 40m? It will be powering 5 sockets on a ring and two lighting circuits. I have a spare 32amp MCB on my main board which I wanted to use to power this? Thankyou
Asked by: BrumDIYer123
Hi BrumDIYer123, Due to the rating of the RCD you would actually need to feed this board from a device rated at 40A or higher.
