Chint amendment 3 compliant enclosures meet needs

The new range of metal consumer units from Chint is not just amendment 3 compliant, but probably the most extensive available in the UK. The core range of enclosures meet requirements from 3-36 modules, but the company can also supply UK manufactured specials for any specific installation not met by the standard range. Extensive stock at Chint’s Stockport factory supports national distribution via leading electrical wholesalers.

The new products were developed after consultation with professional electrical installation engineers to pinpoint features that would contribute to higher safety and simpler and speedier installation. Key features include generous internal space to permit the easy installation of wiring and greater height RCBOs, flexible cable entry via knock-outs in the back, sides, top and bottom of the boxes, a copper bus bar, insulated neutral bar and rigid, insulated, copper live and neutral connections.

Primarily designed for domestic and light commercial applications, property owners and managers of apartments, student accommodation and commercial premises will appreciate features such as the useful padlock facility and ability to install approved meters. The robust enclosures are built for long life and minimal maintenance. Finish is in a white gloss paint that is both low-smoke and zero halogen.

The consumer units are available as basic empty enclosures, with a double-pole mains RCD, double-pole isolator or as ready assembled boards for 14, 16 or 18 ways. Most of the larger units are supplied as standard with a high integrity conversion kit. This enables crucial circuits to be maintained where continuity of supply is essential such as medical equipment, alarms, freezers and more.

Quality assurance by independent certification is a hallmark of Chint products. The new metal consumer unit range has been tested and approved to be compliant to the latest requirements by TUV, the renowned German test house. Associated MCBs, RCDs, RCBOs are also independently tested and approved. Certificates are readily available direct from Chint from the web

Nationwide availability is provided via independent wholesalers who are members of either the IBA or AIEW buying groups, or others such as Lockwell and YESSS.
