Safety, installation and aesthetics are central to the Design Range of metal consumer units from Hager.
The optional health & safety lock provides the ability to isolate circuits and secure the consumer unit prior to occupation of property. This elegant solution utilises the form and function of the Design 30 to enable multifunction locking whilst maintaining its original aesthetic. The cable protector plate is quick to install and provides an enhanced method for bringing cables into the rear of the consumer unit.
Simply remove a rear knockout and clip the cable protector plate into place. The cable protector is provided as standard with all Design 30 consumer units and available as an optional extra in the Design 10 range. The Design range of consumer units enable compliance to 17th Edition Amendment 3 of the wiring regulations, BS 7671.
The cable clamp prevents any movement of meter tails being transmitted to the terminals of the main switch. The door is unlatched to ensure that it is always left in the closed position maintaining the non-combustable integrity of the unit.
A grommet strip is included with every consumer unit to provide a safe edge for cable entry with any knockout. The locate and hold cover locates and holds the cover in location during installation, reducing the risk of damage and leaving both hands free to x the cover to the base (only available on Design 30).
Multiple fixing points enables easy and accurate installation whether fitting in new or existing buildings. Bringing surface mounted cables into a consumer unit provides challenges for installers. Cable containment, the number of cables and the ability to achieve the required IP rating, all need to be considered. Our knockouts on Design range boards are positioned at the correct distance from the wall to accommodate common sizes of trunking. We designed them to be rectangular to provide the maximum cable capacity and to be aligned with the shape of trunking. We provide cable entry plate solutions for all of our consumer unit knockouts.
A hallmark of any Hager consumer unit has always been ample cable space, especially relevant if you are fitting RCBOs. This continues with the Design range of consumer units. A full metal DIN rail, which is robust and secure, ensures no deformation and provides correct alignment of devices.
Hager’s tapered cover and door on the Design 30 offers a refreshing and pleasing aesthetic not traditionally associated with a metal unit. The stylish multi-purpose door plate not only enhances the look of the Design 30 range but also provides a simple and innovative solution for multiple locking options such as health & safety lock or key lock.
