Discover The New Strength

Fortress Circuit Protection

The Fortress circuit protection range from BG is about to launch its most extensive upgrade yet, with the latest improvements dovetailing the new guidelines around the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, Amendment 2. These improvements have been made with the help of trusted installers working with our product development experts to help meet these regulation changes, with the aim of helping the installer complete their installations as quickly and efficiently as possible

Structural & ergonomic redesign improving device strength and rigidity, ensuring a secure fit

Additional Strengthening Ribs

The new lid has been redesigned to add to strength and rigidity whilst ensuring an accurate and secure fit with the base. The base itself has also been beefed up, and additional strengthening ribs on the top and bottom faces, ensure the base is rock solid when being secured.

Aperture Recut for Improved Fit

A step-down aperture has been added to improve the fit around the devices and blanks, when fitting the cover. What is more, a new and convenient lid retainer (available from September) allows the lid to be held open. This simple solution is a significant change when finishing an install, or checking the board, leaving both hands free to access the devices.

Improved knockouts faster installations & optimised cable management

Optimised Positioning

Based on feedback, knockout positions have been realigned on the top and bottom of the base. Why is this better? This change enables the incoming wires to be in line with the offset incomer, making installation easier and termination of the cables more straightforward. This helps to minimise stress on the cable, termination DIN rail, and devices.

Reduced contact points

Making removal easier and protecting the board against damage during this process. For our recessed variants, we have added additional knockouts to the rear.

Improved Knockouts

Reducing contact points for easier knock-out, improved positioning for easier installation and optimised cable entry and management

 


Structural Redesign

Increased strength during installation, flush-fitting and secured lid placement are recommended

 


Redesigned Blank Cover Plates

Offering a more rigid and improved fit, including a slim blank ensuring IP2XC rating Simply twist and slide in place securely

 

  • 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, Amendment 2 compliant
  • Accurate, Integral Spirit level and tripod fixing points for quick installation
  • Combi style screws mean one screwdriver when installing
  • Quick-release raised DIN rail makes first fix faster and allows space for cables to pass below
  • Backed-out captive terminal screws prevent hardware loss and save time

  • Offset incomer provides additional space for main incoming cables
  • Larger screws improve cable retention, enabling greater torque on ferruled cables
  • Longer terminal bars for more capacity and greater flexibility
  • Floating busbar provides maximum installation flexibility
  • Trim supplied to protect cables from sharp-edged knockouts

Arc Fault Detection Devices
and Amendment 2

Amendment 2 and updates to AFDD useage. The main change is around regulation 421.1.7, which we believe will result in Arc Fault Detection Devices (AFDD’s) being mandated in specific installations and recommended in others and as such will become more used to future-proof installations due to ever-evolving process, manufacturing processes and power demand within dwellings - cases such as the fire at Grenfell Tower highlights the risks when AFDD's are not installed and in-use.

Our range of Fortress devices have been extended with AFDD’s. Combined with our existing Surge Protection and A Type RCD and RCBO’s, everything a contractor needs to meet the new regulations has been covered. Additionally, all devices in the Fortress range are forward and backward compatible with our new and existing consumer units.
