Hi all,

Quick question, I will be putting a small consumer unit in a garage which has accommodation upstairs, I was going to put the CU in an eaves cupboard so it is accessible but not in the main room, however, does it have to conform to the regs regarding heights of switches (450 - 1200mm)? Bearing in mind the accommodation is up some steep outside stairs so wheelchair access will not be possible.

Thanks for any help

If it's a new build...yes it will need to conform with building regs....otherwise no,but use common sense with positioning.....a common mistake with a garage is no allowing for up and over doors when positioning a CU
