    Just wondering if anyone can help me with this, I have a few jobs coming up involving changing boards put to rcbo boards but i was wondering does anyone pit there do populated ones? Or are we all just buying empty ones and filling them ourselves? Ideally 10 or 12 ways if possible. Thanks

    I've used a good handful of Lewden boards in recent times. Been pleasantly surprised with them so far. My usual brand is Hager but the price difference between their dual RCD boards and a decent sized RCBO board is a deal breaker for most of my customers.

    My local Yesss stock the populated Lewden boards, 10 way with 8 RCBOs, or 14 way with 10 RCBOs, and they are happy to swap a few out if the sizes don't match with your job.

    I usually buy an empty Wylex board and then fill it myself don’t think anyone actually does the fully populated ones in RCBOs cause they are so expensive have got the carcass from one wholesaler and the RCBOs from a few different ones as the prices seem to fluctuate a bit with different ratings and wholesalers some are up to £10 cheaper so it can be worth shopping around a bit....

    Denmans do a decent rcbo populated board for £89 plus vat and you can get extra rcbos for 11 plus vat each. The cu has decent space uptop too for dressing it well. Comes with 6 rcbos
    With denmans you can normally ask for discount if buying a big order. So ask the manager and good chance youll get 5% off if buying a couple with rcbos too.
    In your case youll get next day delivery to NI. Ring them and ask for a discount... they give you £30 off your first order if you open an account anyway

    I'm assuming you will be using Belfast wholesalers.

    Mercers are pretty good price for Lewden/Control Gear. CEW & WES are decent for BG (but there is a significant price increase coming especially for non stockists!), YESSS not too bad for Contactum.

    EDS & EDS do Havells which I find terrible, and CEF do M2 & Proteus which is worse than terrible.

    I don't know of anyone that does a populated RCBO board. Dual RCD boards, an MCB costs little to swap out for stock. It's rare I get to do an RCBO board, but I can (or could pre price increase) get BG RCBO's for £8.10+VAT (Penneybridge based Supplier)

    Have you come across or used their new reduced height RCBOs? They've dropped the functional earth and made them 23mm shorter, finding them on sale anywhere is quite a challenge though.

    Just shows how supply and demand have affected the price of RCBO's. I don't think that we can give the best cost on here because of different wholesalers buying power and nominated stockists.

    Thanks for the reply, I've been using yesss east Belfast and always fit contactum as I like it and never have had any issues but they have raised the price from 9.50 per rcbo to 17 without any reason why so I'm looking for something different as that's quite a hike. Might try that bg one, as far as I'm aware they are more or less the same as contactum. Is that pennybridge in ballymena?

    That's some price hike:(:(:(

    I've been informed that BG are going to be ditching the full height RCBO's and going only with the compact RCBO.

    Yep Penneybridge in ballymena hey.

    MK do a populated RCBO board thinks it's 10 way, and about £100 the wholesaler I use KEW sell them, I think they are also in CPC farnell.

    It's MK though so not the best board in the world but better than Proteus.

    So are Denmans part of the Rexel Senate group?

    That price for a 10 way populated is one of the best I've seen for
    a while. I could have done with that this week. Went for a dual RCB instead.
