Greenbrook’s new RCD guide keeps safety info current

GreenBrook, the company behind the market-leading PowerBreaker RCD, has published a comprehensive new ‘Guide to RCDs’ to coincide with the launch of its new brand new PowerBreaker range.

Part product brochure, part background information on RCD technology and its vital role in electrical safety, the 20-page publication provides a complete reference guide to GreenBrook’s entire RCD range including switched and unswitched sockets, spurs, plugs and adaptors, in-line products and the weatherproof PowerBreaker range.  The booklet also provides a checklist of what to look for in a high quality RCD product as well as up-to-date information on legislation and codes of practice. In addition, it highlights some worrying statistics about the number of UK homes that remain unprotected from electrical faults some 36 years after the PowerBreaker was first launched in the UK and offers some insights into how the technology works.

Comments sales director of GreenBrook, John Bowen: “PowerBreaker  has been the market leader in  RCD technology since it was launched in 1975 but we are always looking for ways of making improvements.  Our robust new range has a trip speed of typically 20 milliseconds – half the required BSEN standard – and features streamlined switches, a brighter LED test light and a more compact design offering sleeker aesthetics that co-ordinate with other wiring accessories in the GreenBrook family. The new guide provides easy reference for the whole RCD offering from GreenBrook as well as vital information for any specifier.”
