Hi guys, just wondering if anyone has an alternative way of fusing sub mains other than fitting an MCCB panel? Basically I have a sub main to a laundry block, and one to a toilet block. There may be a db fitted next to the proposed panel in the future so I need to leave allowance.
I can’t think of any other way than MCCBs or separate switch fuses with a single point main isolator switch which will look awful.
Thanks

Your options are a panelboard, busbar and switchfuses or distribution fuseboard as far as I know.
Unless you get a custom built bit of switchgear, but that's pretty unlikely for two circuits.

If there is a DB to be fitted next to the panel then you could get a panelboard such as the Schneider powerpact4 which has an extension box available which houses a TPN DB.

Thanks guys, I didn’t think there was another way, but you never know, so I thought I’d ask.
I’m pretty restricted on height, so an extension box wouldn’t work, but I’m not too bad for width. MCCB panel is what I priced for.
