If a 5kW Unit is installed to a plug point the unit element will burn out or trip the circuit breaker.3. The element is copper coated and therefore cannot shock you and both units have earth connectors to ensure that the unit will trip the DB board should a fault occur.RETURNED UNITS within the 1 year Warranty Period1.
