Havells offers new customisation service for customers

Electrical distribution installation can be a difficult proposition if there are dimensional constraints in a plant room for the distribution boards. Regulatory compliance, whether in metering or surge protection has also meant that additional room is required for enclosures. The Havells factory understands these constraints and has the capability create specific arrangements for panel boards including modular enclosures that can be added to parts of the board.

Havells recently worked with Holloway Electrical Consultants and CMBE Electrical who installed the electrical distribution for at the Assisted Living project in Swindon. Havells developed an 18/6 way purpose built split load board with a din rail enclosure pre-installed on the six way section and a 12 way 250A panelboard with metering and surge protection. The conventional method of fitting the metering to the side panels would have meant the main panel and sub board would not have fitted into the small main switchroom which was only 1,700mm x 1,490mm.

The solution offered by Havells was to fit the surge protection device within the bottom section of the incoming meter and then the outgoing meters were fitted into a purpose built enclosure at the top of the panel.

‘It’s never easy installing distribution boards in a small switchroom, plus with the additional requirements needed to comply with ever changing regulations, it’s important to have a flexible offer,’ said Jon Griffiths, contracts manager at CMBE Electrical. ‘It’s essential that the integrity of the installation is not compromised by developing something off specification. With Havells’ product quality and build knowledge, it was the perfect solution for our development in Fleming Way, Swindon.’
