Does anyone know of a decent recessed consumer unit?

Needs to be 6ways with a surge so 8ways total with a main switch

Google comes up with some.
There is a Hager 10 way. Depends on your preference.

I had to fit a recessed Hager consumer unit with a metal recess and plastic cover (before we went all metal) was easy to fit I think that they do/did an on-line video showing install, looked good too.
Why a recessed one?

Wylex do a over sized cover for their standard boards, just fit the board in the wall and after plastering fit the new cover in replacement of the old supplied cover

Wylex don't seem to get much of a mention on here when regading to domestic consumer units.

That may be so but they do what the OP needed and their miniature RCBO's are great, shame there is not 40amp yet
A bit pricey compare to the Lewden stuff i mostly use but thats life

The existing consumer unit that i'm replacing is recessed and she wants to keep it that way.

Has one retro fitted an SPD device? Only fitted ones that come with the board, im guessing you feed the SPD from an MCB along with a N & E

Hager again here. You don't have to get the box absolutely spot on at first fix stage as the depth is adjustable as Richy mentions above
