    I have been using there White range of wiring accessories on a recent rewire and they seem to be of decent quality somewhere between the standard trade range and say MK electric.
    Fitted plenty of there consumer units aswell and they are excellent value for money.
    the BG garage consumer unit has plenty of wiring space inside

    Concur - I did my house with white nexus and they've been great. Quite cheap too, but look the part.

    Been using brushed steel BG sockets/switches this week, pretty good quality do look good once installed.
    Terminals aren't the biggest and the switches tend to push the conductors back out, oh and the screws cross thread very easily and quickly, and could do with 35mm boxes, didn't get on too well with the 25mm.

    We got ours from Senates.
