​i may be wrong but isn't this one plastic and the screwfix one metal.
not personally up to date on the regs but weren't they stopping using plastic unless in a fireproof enclosure.

This one is plastic so doesn't comply with latest regs unless you enclose it in a fireproof cupboard I believe.

Shocking deal!

go wylex or mk.

The Screwfix board looks plastic on their large instore display ad. Online no mention of metal.

Yes the latest regs do stipulate Metal Box for consumer units.
An electrician will now fit metal boards as the Regs now require it.

This unit will be used to replace a similar board because I need to move it and add circuits.
Its cheaper to buy this board with breakers than to buy the breakers.
I will fix this board with new tails to a Henley block then transfer circuit wires over to minimise loss of power.

Originally the boards with wired fuses were metal, I fitted many in my former life as an electrician.
I was involved in fire investigation from 1984 -2011, in that time I never knew a fire starting in a
consumer unit. Electrical fires were always remote from the board.

If you have a plastic board already there is no need to change it for a metal one, these have worked safely for years,
and will continue to do so otherwise they would never have been fitted in the first place.

​Just someone employed by the regulator making sure they've got a job for the next year or two, bit like whoever told us we had to bond every bit of metalwork in the house. Fixing problems that aren't there and creating new ones, wait for people getting electrocuted when resetting breakers and another change in the regs.

​the one from screwfix description says 'all metal consumer unit'
great buy though, I can remember paying more than this for RCD from Newey & Eyre.

Would this be suitable to manage power in a shed, Only using a few of the MCB's and having a spur off from the main cu in house?

Original Poster

This board needs to be supplied by double insulated tails from the meter.
OTT for a shed. There are smaller boards for this purpose.
A shed can be fed with appropriate cable sized and protected as appropriate to route and distance.
Lighting feed can be obtained by a simple fused spur unit.

This item arrived very quickly and is excellent quality.
It is supplied with a copper bus bar that you cut yourself to accommodate the type of board you require it to be.
Dual RCD, Split Load or Main switch only.
