fused spur protected radial circuit from a ring main

Postby cloggy » Thu Jul 30, 2009 7:45 pm

Is it Ok to run a 3 metre long 2.5TE cabled spur from a ring main to a 13A fused spur / switched fused spur and then run a short (1 metre max)radial circuit for two twin sockets from that fused spur. The purpose is to provide power in a loft to supply two extractor fans and a 'power' shower (hot and cold water fed not electrically heated) designed to run on a 5 amp circuit.

be aware though of the requirements for RCDs on these circuits. If your current socket circuit isn't RCD protected then use an RCD protected fused spur unit.
