There are two different types of fused spurs, a switched that includes a manual switch for turning on or off, and a non-switched which does not have a manual switch.
You can find out more about fused spurs in our comprehensive guide to fused spurs.
For maintenance and health and safety when installing appliances such as washing machines and dish washers or high powered electrical equipment on a separate cable from a ring main, you can use a fused spur.
You can connect a fused spur to an existing socket providing the socket does not already have a spur. The number of spurs used must not exceed the number of sockets.
All electrical equipment should be installed by a qualified electrician.
