There are still some old type consumer units out there that use fuse wire and should be replaced without hesitation as its the bigest cause of fire in the home, most fires normally start in the consumer unit.
We work to the latest 18th edition 2023 ammendment 2 regulations and can replace these with metal type units that are sealed and made from non combustible materials to stop fires before they start. All new consumer units now require anti surge devices and RCBO devices.
These old style consumer units are now very rare but are a massive fire risk, if you have something like this they offer no protection from being electrocuted or stopping a fire as they are made of wood and plastic which can easily catch fire.
This is new all metal sealed type fuse board/consumer unit that offers a massive jump in safety, being all sealed if a fire does occur it is fully contained inside the box which is perticualy important when consumer units are under stair cases as if a fire occured this could be your escape route to safely get out of your property and evacuate your family to safety.
