Discuss Replacement access door on SECTOR consumer unit in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi all, a couple of weeks ago I managed to smash to smithereens the transparent plastic access door/cover on my sector consumer unit, that's at the top of my stairs. I need to get a new door/cover to replace it.

I know all C/U's now are metal, but I was wondering if anyone has an old one, or knows of somewhere I could buy an obsolete SECTOR C/U just for the door? I guess it doesn't have to be SECTOR just as long as it fits...Obviously I'll be happy to buy the entire thing although I only need a part of it.

many thanks for reading...

I've been looking on Ebay. No good... Lots of Wylex.

the Plastic Equipment Enclosure as I believe it's called, measures -
325mm width
140 height
35mm thick at the top of the door
20 mm at the bottom.

I think the 'Sector' unit pictured was at that time made by Wylex on contract to Rexel Senate wholesalers so that may help ?

the broken flap is not essential. without it the CU is still safe. bugger it. spend your pennies on beer.

Buy some 12mm ply and some hinges and box it in.

Really? I bow to your superior knowledge but , my Sparky doesn't agree...
then he's an Arse. ask him if he can poke his finger into the enclosure. it's known as IP rating, if he knows what that is.
