Excellent garage unit
23 Jan 2016
By
, London
" I've installed loads of these, they are a perfect size for a garage/outhouse when you need more ways than the standard 2 MCB + RCD mains switch garage units. Great MK quality, and when used with proper glands for cable entry they are watertight.
I'd advise cable entry from the bottom, as there is loads of room under the busbar but it's quite cramped at the top where the N and E bars terminate.
I'll be sad to see these go now that amendment 3 is in full swing.

Excellent DB for garage/shed
7 Dec 2015
By
, Portsmouth
" This distribution board is perfect for a garage or shed workshop. Well laid out, easy to fix and wire. Seems sturdy with a good selection of MCBs. Useful knock outs and blanks, but it is easy to drill your own holes if required using a flat bit. Good quality from the top brand and a good value price. "

" I needed a consumer unit that was bigger than the average garage unit, but didn't want a 10-way.
This unit is well built, easy to use and access, and will future proof my workshop with no issues.

" Awesome value for the garage with a few more than the average circuits (lights and 1 socket).
Enough circuits to accommodate a small workshop, MK quality and the right price... what more do you want. "

MK 6-Way 8-Module RCD
23 Sep 2015
By
, Carmarthenshire
" Easy to install, side entry points need drilling out and would recommend fitting grommets or glands to keep watertight integrity, but not totally essential if fitting in a watertight garage. The only drawback that I find with this unit is that the cable entry points are next to the lid support posts, which after a few cables is a bit tight to get them in and up to the top rails and to keep it tidy. However you can get over this by utilising the other three entry points and spreading the mass. I did not have trouble fitting the lid and the front hinged cover clicks firmly in place and all looks smart after completion. "

" Excellent build quality. Side knockouts for cable entry. No entries in top but it is IP65 so well designed. Lid goes on fairly easy just make sure the busbars at the top are central and cables are clear of fixing posts. Gives more options than just sockets and lights, I have separate outside sockets and lights. "

First class unit

" We used this consumer unit for my daughters dog grooming facility alongside her house. We needed five ways so have one spare. It's ready populated with MCBs, one of which I changed to a different value. Easily drilled out an aperture to accept a 10mm armoured gland. I like the lift up front cover which clicks in tightly to keep any moisture out. A great unit, and excellent value, recommended. "

MK Quality
3 Nov 2015
By
, Havant
" Great quality product from MK and plenty of ways for a larger install, however due to the design, if all your cables are entering from the top and top sides then room is at a premium. The mcb's could do with being positioned a little lower as tons of spare space there.
Other than that does the job and good price. "

" I recently installed one of these & if there's a lot of cables the space above the mcb's is quite limited, if the din rail was lowered this would improve things no end as load of unused space there (mk take note) also you have to re-route some cables to miss the 4 cover fixing posts that hold the cover on, basically it's a poor enclosure design "

" Unit was provided without any blanking panels or busbar insulator caps. If you need to remove unused MCBs after fitting (which you should do), you must source these parts additionally.
Cable entry points are via 4 x 20mm dia knockouts only, so you'll also need 20mm glands to secure cables. "

" Looks good and robustly constructed, but not the best unit I've fitted.
Has four 20/25mm knockouts in side (Why only four?) then it is impossibly difficult to route cables for up to 6 ways plus tails & earth to top where all the terminating is done. My solution was to cut my own entry in top, thereby ruining the IP!, Even then there was not enough room to make a craftsman like job of laying the cables. Plenty of redundant room at bottom, so would have been handy if DIN rail was a little lower.
Cannot yet comment on Performance and Reliability, but I'm not expecting problems. "
