" Just right to carry for Consumer Unit upgrades. Can usually get 2 to 3 sets of tails from these 3m reels, so good value. "

" My plan to house a new consumer unit just that bit further away from the meter these are ideal. Will be purchasing a consumer unit from screwfix very soon. "

Convenient cut lengths
12 Dec 2013
By
, Milton Keynes
" Handy if you don't want to buy three reels of cable. 3m is just the right length.
Most DNOs state that an internal meter must be within 2m of the CU, but that doesn't limit the length of the tails to 2m as you can have at least 0.5m in the CU.
For an external meter, the CU must be within 2m from the entry point, so 3m is the norm with 1m in the external box/meter/CU.
You can go much longer if a switchfuse is fitted to protect the cables.
The distance between the internal meter/entry point and the CU is at the descretion of the DNO. "

" Useful if you don't want to buy a whole reel of blue and brown meter tails. And you get the 16 mm earth which is also useful. Plenty of length and good quality. "

" Not sure where the previous reviewer got his 2 metre rule from.
Consumer units should not be more than 3 metres away from the meter without going through a switchfuse unit., so even if you wanted to use all 3 metres in this pack you would be fine.

Stiff Meter Tails
1 Apr 2016
By
, Liverpool
" 25 sq mm meter tails are in common use and are now a minimum requirement. (Eg prod ref 92086) Unfortunately 25 sq mm cable is very stiff and difficult to bend, especially in consumer units. Research by The Electrical Safety Council has shown that this stiffness can put undue stress on the cable terminations and in some cases the cable just pops out of the termination. Screwfix sell, as do most outlets, 7 stranded 25 sq mm cable. A more flexible, 19 strand version of this cable is manufactured, but hard to come by from outlets. If Screwfix sold it, it would fly off the shelves.
A secondary point: Most of the above cable sold is insulated Blue/Gray and Brown/ Gray. Blue/Blue and Brown/Brown does exist, why this type is not more widely sold is a mystery. "

Leftover tails
31 Jan 2013
By
, Manchester UK
" Pre-cut tails from Screwfix are sold in either 1 or 3 metre lengths. Regulations specify that tails should not exceed 2 metres. 1 metre can be tight, particularly where the feed is on the opposite side of the consumer unit from the electricity supply to the building, it is nevertheless a viable length for certain installations. After 1 metre, lengths should be in multiples of 2 metres for those who don't want to buy drums of cable.
I would recommend the product as product but NOT as useful size.
