Is My Fuse Board Safe?
Old fuse boards that do not meet the current wiring regulations can become dangerous depending on the load placed upon them.
If the fuse board has a wooden backing, cast iron switches or a mixture of fuses it more than likely dates back to pre 1960 and will require replacement. These older fuse boards give little protection from electric shock and should be upgraded to a consumer unit which meets the 17th edition IEE wiring regulations.
These new consumer units which meet the current wiring regulations have dual RCD (Residual Current Breakers) to split the load and ensure that if one RCD trips then there is still some power to each floor of the property.
