    I think lots of people are getting hood winked by wholesalers regarding these items, you need to read the Regulations regarding installing AFDDs and SPDDs regarding how, where, when and why, before you scaremonger your clients, into maybe unnecessary expenditure, for my tuppence worth.

    I like new gear.
    But these prices are ridiculous. Can't imagine mad rush to install these in houses.

    That's a re-hash of the BEAMA guide.
    To be fair, they do highlight that AFDDs are 'only recommended'.

    They've reworded parts of that haven't they.

    SPD's are 'mandatory' in domestic environments, then they go on to say a risk assessment should be carried out to see if they are necessary??

    They also say you have to find out the number of lightning strikes in the area you are installing as part of the assessment. I can just imagine having to contact the weather department everytime I fit a new CU :D.

    An interesting/funny read Murdoch, thanks. Not sure why the chap gave you a dumb, perhaps he meant the article.

    being most of my work is housebashing there are very few instances where i would need to fit one unless apartments, multi storey etc.
    "except for single dwelling units where the total value of the installation and equipment therein, does not justify such protection"

    its written to flog them at stupid prices and regardless of merit, this thing will only become more common so long as the manufacturers are on the JPEL/64 determining regulations, Wago vHager come to mind over MF enclosure/terminals. Too many vested interests on the panel now.

    As I’ve already explained to you in another thread yes we do have a profile we use to test things and it’s @Testaccount@Testaccount. I really don’t see why you need to persist on continually stirring the pot

    My last word on the subject ......... because the alert in question is abused as convincingly proved by the idiot yesterday

    Just get rid of it ........... or allow trolls like him to stir the pot.
