Metal consumer units will be a topic up for discussion during the next episode of NICEIC and ELECSA’s The Wire.
The Wire is a live technical webcast hosted by industry experts Tony Cable and Darren Staniforth. The next episode, which airs on Thursday 26 January, will include a special feature evaluating the challenges encountered in changing consumer units.
The ‘non-combustible enclosure’ requirement for consumer units has been effective since 1 January 2016. An estimated 460,000 metal consumer units have been installed since then and the duo will look at planned and distress consumer unit changes, incorporating the best practice guide from Electrical Safety First.
The interactive session will also include an overview of Emergency lighting – looking at the design requirements for installation to British safety standard BS5266 – as well as looking at the most common issues associated with installation techniques and inspection & testing.
Tony and Darren will be on hand to answer any technical questions. If you have a technical question you would like answered email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand.
The next episode of The Wire takes place from 9am-10am on Thursday 26 January.
