Structural and 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 and 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

Arc Fault Detection Devices

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

Product Overview

The BG Fortress Consumer Unit range has been fully updated to reflect the requirements of BS7671 18th edition amendment 2. BG has also listened to electricians' feedback and made several improvements to speed up installation and offer increased flexibility.

In this video, eFIXX deep-dives into the BG Fortress Circuit Protection range and looks at some of the improvements BG has made over the years, highlighting key features and benefits and how they contribute to the overall efficiency and user-friendly installation of the BG Fortress Circuit Protection range.
