Design Range Consumer Units
Created to provide an ideal solution for our customers, our Design Range of Consumer units offers a quick and easy installation.
Save Time On-Site with our Design Range of Consumer Units
Our Design range of consumer units was developed to provide solutions to our customer’s needs. This knowledge is a result of constant customer communication. Speed of installation, ease of use and reliability are of the highest significance when making your choice of distribution board.
The Design Range consumer units are quick and easy to fit. Available in surface, dual row and flush options, there is a distribution board for every installation.
Design 10 is our board for all applications. As with all models in our Consumer Unit range, there is ample cable space available even when RCBO’s are fitted. The top-mounted terminal rail makes the wiring of the neutral and earth connections neat and simple. Multiple fixing points are available, and a full metal DIN rail ensures that the devices sit square. Design 10 is available for surface and flush applications.
Design 30 is our enhanced consumer unit, created to be more aesthetically pleasing while including some extra features to further ease installation. Design 30 comes with a meter tail clamp installed and a rear cable entry plate supplied, which allows for incoming meter tails to be safely secured eliminating stresses within the switch terminal.
Design 50 focuses on clean aesthetics and a flush fit for seamless integration into any home. Not only aesthetically pleasing, but they are also popular with professional electricians. “They’re easy to fit and look great. I would use them everywhere if I had the chance,” the Electrical Supervisor at William Davis Homes said after choosing the Design 50 Consumer Unit for installation in 700 new homes.
Knockouts are king
We have uniquely pioneered the use of square knockouts. Square knockouts are positioned on the top and bottom of the enclosures to allow for multiple cable entry options.
Cable protector plates, designed specifically to suit our square knockouts, clip simply and easily into place and ensure that the cables enter the consumer unit without damage from the sharp edges created by the removal of knockouts. A range of 4 options is available to accommodate cable entry and the use of mini-trunking. Save time wasted trying to fit tricky grommet strips!
For installations requiring rear cable entry, we can provide the VM02CE cable protector plate which is designed to fit into the aperture left by the removal of the rear knockout. Simply break away sections as required and push in to place.
Aesthetics may be important, but if appearance is given too much priority over functionality, electrical contractors will struggle to complete installations quickly. All our consumer units offer multiple knockouts options, including Round Knockouts (RK option) for SWA applications, and ensure the initial good looks of the board are maintained throughout its installation and end-use.
Small details, big-time savings
Even tiny details can create time savings during electrical installation projects.
The Design 30 unit comes with a ‘locate and hold’ door for instance. Utilising the small ‘key’ found in the rear cable protector plate the access door can be held in the open position. This allows professional electricians to use both hands to label the circuits.
This basic design enhancement may only shave a few minutes off the total time required for installation, but over the course of major electrical installation work, those minutes add up. And the job is a lot less frustrating for the installer who does not have to worry about holding the door open as they work.
Basic design enhancements help to reduce costs
Our electrical equipment solutions combine innovation with aesthetics, delivering products that are pleasing to homeowners and electrical contractors. Each consumer unit has been designed to make the process of installation as quick and simple as possible, helping installers complete projects quickly.
The savings may be modest, but tiny details like the choice of consumer distribution boards will have an effect on project completion times and overall profitability.
