BG 13 way rcd board
28 Nov 2013
By Neal
, Newbury
"Use these every time since discovering how good they are. Do everything a big name board does for half the price.
Loads of space for termination, well designed, cable access is plentiful and available in different sizes.
I won't spend more on name boards anymore, maybe the big names like Wylex and MK will bring down their prices when they see what is available from the competition."

"These range of Consumer Units are great. Easy to fit,Built in Spirit Level, Loads of Cable entry points and a really nice looking unit.I now use these exclusively as compared to others they're so good. A good range too from Small to Quite Large ones and the Breakers are well priced too.Fit and forget these BG Consumer Units ."

faultless product
15 Apr 2013
By Bukko
, Surrey
"I've always been a wylex installer, but after doing an sub contractor install and being provided a BG board, I've decided to switch brands. I was really hesitant about using one of the "cheaper brands" but this board is decent looking, well built and clearly designed by someone who has actually had to install a cu in the past. I wouldn't say it was better then the Wylex nesessarily, but its certainly not worse, and £60 for a fully populated 13 way dual RCD board is just great value.
they're standard size breakers too, so many other brands are interchangeable.

"I used to swear by crabtree consumer units ( I still like them) but this is easily as good if not better. Lots of room for nice neat cable layout and cheaper than crabtree which is always a bonus :-)"

"This was the second one of these CU's I've installed and never had any trouble. Good quality case and plenty of space inside. You do have to cut the busbar but that's not really a problem."

"great value board, solid chassis and good lid,
huge buss bar!,terminals can have week screws so watch your driver.
mcbs and rcds line up nicely and feel quality.
if i had to improve anything it would be the labels but at these low prices we can't grumble."

Excellent Value Consumer Unit
18 Jul 2012
By Pedro67
, lanarkshire
"I found this consumer unit easy to install with plenty room for all the cables. The neutral and earth termination bars were more than adequate
and I found that the miniature circuit breakers
were also robust and easy to install, all in all a good consumer unit at a very very decent price. I have installed a good few of these and so far I have had no problems and would certainly recommend it.

13 Way BG fuse board
11 May 2012
By fidder
, Llangaffo, Anglesey
"We are pro electricians and have fitted many different fuse boards. I agree that you get what you pay for in most cases, but these BG boards are fantastic value. They are one of the best boards I have fitted and quick fitting too.
The bus bar surpasses that of other boards in that it will never ever burn out...its so thick.
The Mcb;s and Rcd;s are very good quality, and the integral wires are substantial.
As I have said we have fitted many BG boards, and never ever had to go back on one.
This is not a cheap board...its a hum dinger.
Buy it...you will not be disappointed.

Good value kit
29 Jan 2013
By Nonconformist
, Manchester UK
"I'm sure, like almost everything else, that this is a Chinese manufactured import with a name designed to appeal to Anglophone markets. So what! It's significantly better value for money than any of the more established names in populated consumer units."

Good product so far
30 May 2012
By jren
, gateshead
"I normally install Wylex or Hagar and so approached these with some reservation.
However I was pleasantly surprised.
Robust and flexible the casing is not brittle and does not distort. There is plenty of access at the back for cables and inside for the terminations. Good size neutral bars and plently of room for bonding cables etc. The only thing I have not had chance to check is the room for RCBO's.
Not had one go wrong yet, not like Volx or Proteus must replace MCB's on a weekly basis.. Time will tell but spares readily available from Screwfix Good value for 13 way board
