Please note these most probably will not comply with the 3rd amendment to the 17th edition regs. Which states all CUs to be made of non combustible material. So as of Jan 2016 no sparky should be installing these.

Strictly speaking you could use this, but it would need to be mounted within a non-combustible box, observing the same requirements for location and environment etc
Given the necessity for both access to the unit (door) and ensuring that door [seal] met fire requirements, it's never worth the £50 you're trying to save over a compliant distribution unit.

To be honest its a cheap way to get the main switches
#4
These can still be used in commercial properties
banned#5
How many switches does it come with?

Also 17th edition split load for £17.99

Wouldn't use it myself, but the 2 RCD's are worth more than £17.99.

Single RCD so not even 17th edition pre 3rd amendment.

Would you need separate MCBs to make a functional consumer unit?
#9
The premise of split load being dual governing RCDs. You could use this board if you only had two or three circuits to distribute to which discrimination was not a factor (and obviously no smoke or fire alarm circuit)
Technically, under some situations this board CAN be made compliant. In reality it is never worth the effort. As said elsewhere, bought for spares etc (but even that is a regulatory minefield unless identical replacement parts)

i'm not an electrician

but i believe so.

However there's some new requirement to install metal consumer units now and split load with 2 rcds etc. I think having 2 rcds is quiet good idea anyway
#14
How much do rcd's cost?
#15
Anywhere cheap?
