Is it time to change that old rewireable fuse board?

Need more circuits or power?

Looking for a modern consumer unit?

Old consumer units often called fuse boards can still be found in many homes today throughout the UK. These units could be aged some 40-50 years old!

Just because they are still in use doesn’t mean that they are still safe!

Very often inspections can get overlooked and fuse boards often remain in place as the engine of the system for a much longer period of time.

As with any materials fuse boards also deteriorate with age and should be inspected at a maximum of every 10 years or change of property ownership.

5 reasons to change your old fuse board with a modern new consumer unit:

■ You old fuse board may not be safe!
■ Better electric shock protection is provided using modern 30mA RCD’s (Residual Current Device)units
■ Quicker tripping out times for short circuit and overload currents
■ No rewireable fuses wires to worry about in the dark
■ Quicker circuit reset times using trip switch controlled MCB’s (Miniature Circuit Breakers)
