Rated 2 out of 5 by from It really could've been better There's no grommet strip, no stickers, you've gotta drill out the knockouts, and those silly blanking plates that come with it, are a bigger waste of time. It has recently went up in price too, and I honestly don't see any justification for it. There are better shower consumer units out there for less, another reason why I'll not be buying this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy shower unit Well priced easy to install and looks good,knocks are better removed with a 20mm cutter and use your own grommets, labels could be better, overall a good buy and I will keep using them

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap but NOT cheerful I always liked the BG plastic CUs but since they've switched to metal their design has gone downhill, to the extent that I won't be using them again. The unit looks nice, but the design is very poor and fitting is a real pain. The knockouts are not properly cut so were not removeable without a 20mm holesaw and the placement is poorly thought out so cabling is difficult to bring in through the bottom knockouts without fouling the RCD or MCB (There is not enough space behind the DIN rail to bring meter tails up). On top of that, the plastic clips holding the top Neutral rail kept popping out when put under any kind of tension (as you get when using thick cables as you will be in a shower unit!) The only plus I can give this is that it looks nice when fitted and it was cheap. But it took me at least an hour extra to install than it should have done, so can really only recommend this if the extra time time you will spend is worth less than the difference to buy an alternative. For everyone else, save yourself some pain and pay the extra for an alternative.

Does this take type b curved or type c mcbs?

Asked by: Griffged
Hi Griffged, Actually either is suitable, the more indicative point would be that B curve is the standard for domestic installations with C curve being the solution for some causes of nuisance tripping.

Please can you tell me if this has a metal casing or if it’s polycarbonate?

Asked by: SHXgardener
Hi SHXgardener, The enclosure is made from powder-coated metal to comply with the 3rd amendment of the 17th edition wiring regulations (and by extension the 18th edition version also).

Can this be used for storage heaters,

Hi I have a 100a incomer to property. If I get the right b rating mcbs can I use this board or do I need a bigger rcd? Thanks
Asked by: Kinglichfield1
Hi Kinglichfield1, This enclosure comes with a 40A 30mA RCD (max power 9600W / 9.6kW) plus a 32A (max power 7680W 7.68kW) and a 6A (max power 1440W / 1.44kW) breaker so these are your limits with the existing devices, if you have a higher power consumption in mind then yes you would need to swap out the devices for higher rated ones.

Can I add two additional circuits? Can I use standard MCBs in this unit?

Asked by: bicestergeorge
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The enclosure is designed to accommodate two further BG Electrical breakers (only BG breakers have been tested and certified as suitable for use) and the busbar has the capacity to connect them as well. It would be wise to total up all of the potential circuit loads to see if you need to upgrade the provided 63A RCD incomer to an 80A version though.
