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. 

Extensive Range
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.
