Had to install a ring main & cooker circuit for a new kitchen we have been doing.

The consumer unit is hager split load but is plastic. There is no room in the cupboard to add another board and the customers dont want to pay for a board change.

I guess i could just note on the form saying customers did not want to change to metal?

As long as it is safe for continued use is does not need replacing it is fine to add circuits to it.

not only that, but scaremongers ( get rich quick cowboys) are telling the public that their plastic CUs are "illegal". it's time someone clamped down and educated the general public. where's niceic when you need them? hiding away looking for unauthorised use of their logo.

Do all the other schemes educate the general public on plastic CU’s other than the Niceic?

I work for my dad who has been NICEIC for the last 30 years. As i'm slowly getting more involved in the company i'm not sure whether the NICEIC is the way to go? A lot of other electrcians seems to be going NAPIT or over to STORMA

whilst the nicnic may be a pain in the arse, it's the most widely regognised. might be a case of stick with the devil you know.

They would be better off telling people to leave electrical work well alone and call in an electrician. :mad:

What is wrong with plastic? Is there space on the board to add the extra MCBs?, no problem.

In the UK, it’s the weird guys who put a rod in when they have an MEN supply.
