    Well I have decided to get a split load consumer unit for my requirements. But there are 2 options as far as I can see a dual RCD or a simple RCD + Non-RCD bus.

    I havent found any of the dual RCD i.e 100mA + 30mA. This is a fairly attractive proposition as I like the idea of still having some protection on the less critical parts.

    Are these dual RCD units connected...

    100A/100mA RCD -> Bus 1 -> 80A/30mA RCD -> Bus 2

    or

    100A/100mA RCD -> Bus 1
    80A/30mA RCD -> Bus 2

    Who does these consumer units ? I havent seen any in Screwfix or TLC ?

    MK Sentry is one range, buy the box & then the breakers you want - Be prepared you won't be looking at Volex or Clipsal prices!

    Hmm, MK prices are a bit steep, so maybe I will stick with a standard split load.

    Another option,check out MEM's range of CU's last price I got for a split-loader 100A main switch and 80A/30Ma RCD with 8 type B breakers of your choice was £69+vat

    Wilts wholesale stock them BTW

    Far better than any clipsal/volex
