• Disconnected earth bonds?

    An unregistered 'electrician' had relocated the consumer unit and not connected the earth bonds

    This is why only competent registered electricians should be used.

  • IP ratings? IP XXD required

    The minimum gap allowed on the top of a consumer unit is 1mm square.

It is incredibly important to ensure electrical safety at all times and sadly due to some peoples negligence this isn't always the case. As you can see from the images on the left what 'should' be done and what 'is' done are often a universe apart.
  • Consumer unit upgrade required

    No RCD, an unreliable earth and wooden board etc....

  • Earth leakage trips

    They where unreliable in the 60's when fitted but have since failed

  • 17th Edition Amd3 Upgrade

    Installation fully upgraded with new earth stakes RCBO protection on all circuits and metal consumer unit.

Sometimes upgrades are needed as with above and when done properly they look neat and tidy and will provide brilliant protection for years to come.
