Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, solid and well laid out It was a toss-up between this unit and the British General at the same price. I chose this one as I actually prefer the gravity closing of the front flap, while others prefer the BG downward opening flap, but I think this is safer having gravity keeping the modules covered and it also keeps them free of dust. What you don't see here is the inside, and once I opened it up, I was purring with delight, as it was so well laid out, with most of the internal wiring being solid bars. It really ticked so many boxes with me, it was clean, spacious and everything was obvious. Special notice goes to the design of the busbar. It is largely protected in plastic and L-shaped, so it tucks under the modules and does not hang down. Apart from the two five-module busbars fitted, tt comes with a spare three-module alternative, plus a couple of rubber caps to cover and unused prongs, so you have so much freedom when it comes to the arrangement of modules. The only negative is the poor quality of the blanking plates, which could be so much better. The metal and enamelled case is solid and has punch-out holes on all four sides. there are 4x39.5mm, 4x31.5mm, 2x24.5mm and 8x19.5mm I married it with the "Wylex membrane cable entry kit 10 Pcs", which gave me 32mm and 20mm plugs, but I could not find anything similar for the 40mm and 25mm, which did limit me a bit. They were very tight (being 0.5mm too big, and I had to hammer them in, but I do prefer membrane to open grommet. This was the biggest drawback. I would hope that Chint or Screwfix would supply or at least offer a range of corresponding fittings. I ended up buying two bags of the Wylex, and they are not cheap! Finally, it comes with a sheet of stickers to identify your modules, with a mixture of text and icons, plus a few duplicates and blanks to hand-write. Overall, I am pleased with the result and would recommend this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Becoming my go-to board First saw these at the Elex Show and then tried them as the BG build quality dropped. Far better product aand my go-to board. Lost of space for "show boating" your cable skills. Sold connect bars. Insulated neutral bars which are a good idea but hinder access to the screws and need refinement. Plenty of knock outs and always two empty spaces so you can add your own choice of MCBs with out having two left over you never use. Only a little more expensive than BG. Miles cheaper than Lewdon or Schneider. Drop down lid is a nuisance to work with but probably better for clients and less likely to be damaged.

Does this board meet 18th edition regs??
Asked by: rads

Can I swap one of the mcb for a different size/rating

Asked by: Euan111
Yes, you unscrew all the modules on the rail and the busbar drops out, then unclip the module and replace it with another one and refit the busbar, very quick and simple, especially if you do that before fitting it. I needed another 32A and did just this.
