Greetings all, and a Happy new Year !

Regarding (unfused) spurs, can anyone offer some guidance please.

I used to think that it was a cardinal sin to spur from a spur (unless you use a fcu) and I'm sure the regs (haven't got my regs to hand so can't quote the reg) says somewhere that an unfused spur can supply only a single or a twin socket.

However, the diagram they have of a typical radial final circuit in the appendices (Appdx 15 ?) shows an unfused spur feeding an additional 2 sockets.

Is this just an error in the diagram ?

Also, can you clarify exactly what is meant when they say "an unfused spur may be connected to the origin of the circuit in the consumer unit."

They're talking about the origin in the consumer unit, but surely they're not saying you can run a parrallel circuit (albeit only a single or twin socket) on the same breaker are they? That's the only way I can interpret that statement, but I thought that in other places in the regs they make it perfectly clear that each circuit needs it's own protection device.

Also, is there a difference in spurring from a socket and spurring from a junction box ?

Regards
Steve
