Case Study – Replacing an old Wylex fuse board

The photograph shown is of a Wylex 3036 re-wireable consumer
unit; EDB Electrical Services gave a quote to carry out the task of
replacing the consumer unit and carrying out the upgrading of the
bonding to the oil and gas supplies.
The old consumer unit was replaced with a Hager 6×6 split load
60898 consumer unit as shown. The whole installation was then
protected by RCDs and 60898 MCB’s.

The replacement of the consumer unit was carried out by one of
our fully qualified electricians and took 6 hours to complete,
including a full test of the property and the upgrading of the
bonding with little disturbance the customer.

The installation was orginally given an EICR which it failed. Now with the new fuseboard the electrical installation passed with flying colours.
