"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

By SparkyTyke

"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."

"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."

BG 10 way consumer unit

By dhyelectrical

"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"

"I tried this board when i need a low cost unit for a job with a tight budget. To my surprise it was actualy very good., easy to install with adequate room for cables and plenty of easily removed entry pionts. Nice touch with the spirit level built in, Also Rcd's tested out well. All together a great looking, decent qualtiy unit at an excellent price."

BEST consumer unit
31 May 2012
By electricAL
, wales
"Excellent consumer unit I used to use wylex until they change to 17th edition then with all the internal tails it became very tight
So I change to Mk until I started using BG, plenty of knockouts and room inside the bubble is handy to have
The little fault I found:
Use penny washers on screws to hold the unit, helps to stop it buckle
No 50A mcb as lot of showers are now 10.5kw
And most annoying one is the plastic cover screw it oks if you can complete the installation and test in one go you just fit the cover, get paid and walk away.
But when I recently wired a new installation some of the circuit wasn’t ready to connect up i.e. shower, imm heater etc. so could not complete testing so by the time I finished I must of open the cover about halve dozen times so the plastic screws started to chew up.
BUT FOR THE PRICE BEST EVER

Top class fuse board
13 Apr 2012
By SparkieD
, mitcham london
"This fuse board is top class lots of room easy
to install with level in the board + the bars dont fall out when larger cables are installed even looks good when the cover is closed, and for the price well just to good to be true why are the rest so costly?
Having now installed 7 no probs at all but why 2 x 16A AND NO 20A mcbs still cant have everthing
