Hi guys

I have a quote to do in a bath room.where the customer has a fitted cupboard, in which they want an Ironing board of all things.

the Ironing store is over 600mm from zone 2.

I intend to shorten the Iron flex to a length it will not reach any thing,have it as a fixed load. install sup bonding to all services.
power circuit is RCD protected and I intend to RCD lighting so really supp bonding is over the top but due to the unusual situation bibs and braces.

Yes - where will the client actually do the ironing ? - and how is that any different from plugging into a socket on the landing (for example) given the cupboard is outside of zones anyway.

Not sure without looking in the book the distance of Zones but if you look in section 6 bobs your uncle
I think the lady of the house will be after you if you shorten the flex re switch again look what sec 6 says
If I had to make an on the spot decision I would say OK
If it's Rcd why bother sup bonding
Was there a James Bond flim where JB throw an iron into the bath and the Chinese bloke with the bald head got zapped

MrP rapping for the day, today is the year 5 since a shovel was put in the ground with 9,000 men on site and not one room finished you couldnt make it up

That was when outside zone 2 could be whithin zone 3? Now that zone 3 doesn't exist they'd have no reason to mention it!

The last sentence of 701.512.3 does in my copy - 2.4m outside zone 2 to be precise.
