Hey lads.

Just out of interest what make of DB is everyone using these days.

Personally I use Crabtree for domestics, and Merlin Gerin/Hager for the industrial side.

There are some bad ones out there.

Comments please.

I use Hager for both commercial and domestic.

Great range of modules and easy to install and wire up!

Contactum are good but i do find them a little flimsy.
