A metal enclosure lined with intumescent cloth which is fixed around existing plastic electrical consumer units. IET Wiring Regulations state that all consumer units must be either constructed of non-combustible material, or enclosed in a cabinet or enclosure constructed of non-combustible material. This unit is an effective and economical way to bring existing combustible consumer units in line with regulations without the need to replace them entirely.


– Designed to protect consumer units, fuseboxes, and switch boxes along escape routes such as staircases or corridors for up to 1 hour

– A versatile preventative measure for overheating electrical boxes, complying with Amendment 3 of BS7671:2008

– Access hatch to the unit can be hinged to open to the side or to drop downwards, dependent on requirements

Application Instructions

The Intumescent Electrical Consumer Unit Fire Protection System simply
fits over the existing unit and is then fixed with screws. Small holes can be made in the
frame to allow for conduits or ducting. In the event of a fire the intumescent material
will fill these gaps for complete fire protection. You will need to allow a 30mm
minimum clearance on all sides for connections.
