Replacement Cover for Consumer Unit to Cover Newly Installed MCB


Postby brimble » Fri Aug 08, 2014 2:24 pm

Having just replaced cartridge fuses for MCB,s I find that the original fuse cover is to shallow to cover the new mcb. Where is it possible to obtain a deeper cover.

Can't you cut the cover ?

Thanks Reevo I have considered that but it would destroy the existing cover so I am going to find suitable material to build up the existing cover to give suffucient depth for the MCB,s

In most cases the front cover is cut to allow the mcb's to protrude through. It was very popular with the most common older Wylex consumer units.

If you do build the cover out, remember to allow enough space for the mcb lever to trip.
