Decent consumer unit
21 May 2014
By thermidor
, South West
"A crisper, more modern appearance than other boards I've fitted.
Pros: compact but not cramped. Decent quality plastic used in the casing. MCBs and RCDs fix in properly without twisting/skewing when tightened as with some other boards. Moulding all fits together with sufficient space around the aperture to avoid having to wedge the breakers in, even when fully populated.
Cons: the only down sides I could think of was that the supplied labels are a bit unexciting (no pictograms!), the numbering on the earth / neutral bars isn't consistent, and the RCD tails are not trimmed to optimum length so get in the way a bit.
I've only given 3* for reliability as I've not had one in the wild for long enough yet to make any judgement - so it gets an average."

"I have fitted lots of these in Private and Rented Properties. They are well thought out, well designed and look very professional. Had no issues since I started fitting them two years ago. One thing I would like to see, is instead of 2 x 16A and 4 x 6 as Standard I would like ot see 1 x 16A 3 x 6 Amp and 2 x 20 Amp MCB's installed as Standard, All in All superb board,"

Good To Install
17 Sep 2013
By SparkyTyke
, Great Britain
"Well thought out by someone who has actualy done the job.
Better than most current "decent"brands.
Id put it in my own properties.
Too early to tell reliability, the first i fitted approx a year ago. No problems so far.

"Superb unit. Plenty of space inside. Good range of MCB's. The easy remove cover is very helpfull. 5 stars all the way. Can't comment on reliability as it's brand new but don't expect any nasty suprises."

Very nice unit
18 Jul 2013
By Daimack
, Wales
"I have previously used Wylex but thought I would give this unit a go and have been very impressed. There is plenty of space for connecting up inside, the spirit level is a nice touch, and the final unit looks smart and professional. The supplied choice of MCBs is sensible. Be careful to mount it flat and square and you should have no problem with the lugs that hold the facia in place. It comes with all required stickers (not all CUs do for some reason!). I was a bit surprised to see that BG don't quote a torque for the connecting screws, but that's not really a problem. Comes fully built up but is easy to reconfigure if you wish. Will definitely use these again."

"I been installing consumer units for many years and have yet to find a favourite. Many manufacturers try different things and yet British General have got it right.
Awesome design with lots of room for your meter tails in a well engineered unit. This is clearly my leader and 1st choice."

"at First look this product appears to be well put together, Installation was problem free as there's plenty of space inside for cable's to run, a reasonable selection of MCB ratings supplied.
All in all the job looks good.
Average score on reliability as the C.U. has only just been installed so hasn't yet been time tested."

Good value but RCD faulty

By Frederick

"Good value and easy to install, but on testing have found one RCD faulty, fails to trip. Don't want to remove and replace whole unit so hope to be given just a replacement 63amp RCD. So Jury out on this one until problem solved."

"Would recommend these they are sturdier built than most of the other value CU's so sit much better on the wall. Only gripe is that some of the screws for the earth and neutral bars are covered in seal and have to be unscrewed before they can be screwed in which is a pain."

"very spacious board allowing plenty entry ways, and space for cables, but the biggest advantage of this board over others i have installed is that you are able to move neutral and earth bars around which when you are replacing a board can save a lot of joints/crimps inside the board making the whole job much easier and for any future additions and filling up of space"
