is this all right?
I would wire using a fcu but if it's already like it then who cares?
Nothing wrong with that.
what if the thermostat cable is buried into the plaster and is 230V, is RCD protection required or not ? even if its till connected via a plug.
That's an interesting point Steve, I suppose if the stat cable was installed post 17th. rcd would be required, even though it's supplied from a plug?
bs7671 ends with the plug - there is no reason to stop anyone supplying a shed via a socket thus avoiding 7671 and part p altogether.
Yes Coloumb, I suppose if something is connected by a plug it isn't considered fixed wiring, even if it is concealed/chased into a wall.
but the regs apply to caravans which are connected via a plug/socket
but commando sockets aint fused...
rcds you kids
commando sockets are made to a certain size colour etc to match the rating
rating of what?
commando sockets are colour coded to thier current rating, hence they are unfused.
colour code voltage
physical size current rating
I cannot see anything wrong with wiring a boiler to a 3 pin plug. Atleast that way the poor old lady can still plug the boiler into a different circuit if need be
So why do many people insist on using a fixed spur which isn't easily accessible to a non-spark???
Also why specify an unswitched socket???
