If your home has an old style fuse board, it’s likely that it doesn’t comply with current British Standard (BS7671) 18th Edition Regulations, and could be unsafe. You should consider upgrading and replacing your old fuse board with a modern compliant consumer unit.
Here at Hawk Electrical (Cheshire) Ltd we only install modern consumer units that comply with the BS7671 17th Edition Regulations and are also 3rd amendment compliant.
The branded quality ‘Steeple’ and ‘Curve’ consumer units that we install are metal clad and all plastic components are contained within a metal enclosure in compliance with Amendment 3. They are of an attractive modern design with self closing top hinged front cover.
A rewire of a property often goes hand in hand with a consumer unit change and it’s important to consider this and take advice from our experienced qualified electricians.
All work is carried out is compliance of BS7671 17th Edition Regulations and is fully inspected and tested following installation. You are provided with test certificate following completion of the install, that should be retained as this documentation will be needed when selling your home, for example.
