Hey all.

Has anyone else had the new catalogue from Screwfix called Electrifix. Got mine in't post this mornin.

It's supposedly aimed at just sparkies but I bet they send it to everyone.

I gots to say though the prices on all things electrical including tools and testers, fire alarm kit, cable, lighting, sockets, switches etc etc are lower than the main catalogue and dont seem to bad at all really.

E.g a Wylex 17th board with M/S + 2 x RCD's + 10 MCB's for £76.58. Pretty good I think.

Well worth a look.:)

Apparently they will only supply to registered electricians which they check via the competent persons website.

Got mine yesterday ........... prices ARE lower than main catalogue BUT that is because the vat is not added. Add the vat and the prices are the same.

There is a bit of difference.

A Wylex high integrity board in the main catalogue P244, is £117.38 without the vat, the same board in the Electricfix catalogue P13, is £105.64 without the vat.

Lenny, in addition to that, we have noticed in most of our wholesalers that they are selling materials to joe bloggs virtually at the same price we buy, i think thats wrong, but when we pull em about it every bodies blamin the recession, and "we have to survive " as well attitude.

My local 'one man band' wholesaler is very good on prices generally, and they have a retail and trade price and stick to those.

They all fall in line eventually, as whilst one is cheaper and more expensive on some items, another will be the other way round. When pricing between the two, the total nearly always comes out the same.

They do say "such as the NICEIC......."

So they would accept any of the governing bodies.

I noticed in my screwfix in Welwyn Garden City last week that they were advertising a 17 edition Wylex consumer unit and the picture on the large advert was what we used to install in the 16th, main switch and 1 no RCD protecting half of it i,e, split load board. am I missing something here

Any consumer unit can be used for a 17th edition install.

With the one you saw, it would be a case of using RCBO's to the circuits on the unprotected side, where required.

Just went to Screwfix and they had a separate Electrifix counter out the way from the normal screwfix. I asked how I could buy and he said I had to prove I was an Electrician. He gave me a list of requirements and NVQ 2 was on the sheet!!!!!!!
I showed him my JIB Approved Electrician, They took a photocopy of it sent it up to the head office and hey presto could order from the catalogue. I think it’s a good idea the only problem is just googled it and anyone could read this website and see this thread

normally you can go in with a list of gear you want and they will give you a bit more discount.
at the moment you can get cash back also
