Wooden and plastic consumer units can be a source of fire, causing damage to property and even loss of life. Connections can become loose in consumer units and overheat and, coupled with the high loads found in such units, can catch fire. Furthermore, being wooden or plastic units means they have little ability to contain such fires.
Therefore, the BS7671 wiring regulations now require that all new consumer units in domestic installations be made from a non-combustible material, such as metal. This material, along with certain installation requirements, can help contain such fires. Therefore, it's a good idea to install such units in non-domestic installations as well.
