What is a Distribution Board?
The distribution board at your Huddersfield premises serves an almost identical purpose to the fuse board or consumer unit at your home. Their primary function is to safely distribute electricity around your premises and to cut that power should a fault be detected. Distribution boards are typically larger than their domestic counterparts and are found in both commercial and industrial settings. They are usually fed by a three- phase power supply which they distribute to smaller single-phase consumer units which in turn serve the individual circuits. Much like your home’s consumer unit, a distribution board will need upgrading as it wears over time or when your power demands increase beyond its capacity. When that occurs, it is time to schedule a distribution board upgrade for your Huddersfield premises.
Do I need an Electrical Distribution Board upgrade?
You may need to upgrade the electrical distribution board at your Huddersfield premises for several reasons. These can include:
- If your current distribution board is damaged for example through an electrical fire
