Hi went to look at a job today. This guy had a old fuseboard down low level literally next to a toilet. Now he wants this moved up by about a metre so it will be about waist height. This is going to be difficult as cables will be extended and also tails. The board will be in a position im not to happy with as basically it could be splashed/weed on whatever, just a terrible position in general. Not sure what's best, would like to move it next to the meter which is the other side of the wall, but the cables are on the wall the board is on now, and to take thwm through the wall would leave them not in a safety zone on the original wall ??

IP rated DB/enclosure?

Or if moved to the other side of the wall, install an (IP rated) box to route the cables through (& contain any joints if you need to extend) & mark the zones?

Just put the new board in the same position and tell the client that it needs boxing in, or quote enough to do it yourself, make a little cupboard around it, shouldn't be too difficult, a few pieces of mdf or similar,

Depends on the thickness of the wall - not if it's over 100mm (as most masonry walls will be).
