Did a PIR on offices today, they had an old Ottermill dis board, the main switch had no covers over the terminals and the busbars between the breakers had no covers either, anyone got any experience of these old boards and whether they ever did have them. What code on the PIR would you put on the test sheet.Open to opinion before I write the test sheet up

sparks those boards did have a busbar cover normally a little black one. And the MCBs had liilt flashguards at the side. The busbars had clipon covers.
They are redundant boards and it will be impossible to get any parts. A for the codes i would class 1 it as there is damage to equipment desighn which may affect the integrity of the D.B
 
code 1 urgent attention seems harsh after all we always isolate before removing the cover :rolleyes:
code 2 would be ok in my opinion
and in comments section i would put something like due to age and condition of cu inc parts missing i recomend this cu is replaced
some spares are available here

Would also suggest code 2 but recommend to client to replace as have had the main isolator to the board short between phases when operated makes a big flash and bang and stain in pants.
