hi

for fitting a supply , single phase, to a lift, 6A load. We state a local fused double pole fused switch, rated at 13amp.

does BS 7671 state for fixed equipment, where the local isolation switch should be positioned ?

thanks

"accessibility" is the key - so somewhere obvious and preferably on "show" would be my advice.

Local Isolation Switch means to me, that it needs to be.... local, or at least close enough, to be in plain sight, also needs to be easily or readily Accessible!!

What sort of lift only requires a 6A supply to it?? lol!!!

I think the OP may mean a 'Stannah' type stair-lift (or chair-lift), where most manufacturers recommend a local 5A SFCU.
That makes sense, ...never gave a chair stair lift a thought!!...lol!!!
