Switched Fused Spurs are also known as Fused Connection Units or Fused Switches. They are available in various types some without Switches or with Neon indicator lights and others with cord outlet holes in the front. Spurs are generally used with Electrical appliances that need to be hard-wired as opposed to using a Plug and Socket. Typical examples could be Washing Machines, Tumble Driers, Dishwashers or Storage Heaters etc The Switched Fused Spurs we sell are Double Pole (DP) which means that the switch breaks both the Live and the Neutral poles – this is widely regarded as the safest way to isolate an electrical load.
Switched Fused Spurs offer the protection of a 13 amp fuse and depending on the loading on the appliance this can be changed by the user to accept a 3, 5 or 10 fuses if required.
You can choose to have a neon indicator light that will show you when the appliance is live and we also offer the same units with a cord outlet to allow the appliance flex through the front of the Switched Fused Spur. This is useful when wiring heating products or similar.
Our Switched Fused Spurs also have an earth terminal as well as 2 live and neutral terminals and these terminals will accept up to 3 x 2.5mm Twin & Earth Cables or 2 x 4.0mm Twin & Earth Cables.
We recommend 25mm deep wall boxes for mounting our Switched Fused Spurs or 35mm deep wall boxes for shallow or flat plate ranges.
