Our in-house, competitive modular switchboard solution

By relying or predominantly focusing on one type of construction, our competitors restrict their ability to offer the absolute best solution and product to meet your budget. DaRa Switchboards use three main enclosure types for modular switchboard construction: Cubic, Elsteel and Legrand XL3. Our modular switchboards can be constructed for any form of separation, from Form 1 with no separation at all, right up to Form 4b – designed with separation of busbars and all functional units, alongside a partition of all outgoing terminals. The custom design of a DaRa Switchboard is a smooth process that benefits from active communication, whether constructing a motor control centre (MCC) or mains switchboard (MSB). Upon receipt of an order, the design engineers at DaRa Switchboards first approach the needs of the customer and requirements from the product. We take into consideration things such as:

  • Cable entry direction
  • Cable size
  • Switchroom size restrictions
  • Supply authority


In fact, when designing switchboards, our engineers take all related and pertinent information into account, then use 2D and 3D design tools to accurately draft the most beneficial and efficient modular switchboard designs. Once these are sent through to our customers for approval, we then assign a project manager to oversee the manufacturing process and ensure delivery and quality is exactly to the standard you require.

The benefits of choosing DaRa Switchboards

Switchboards are meant to last. With a projected service life of 25 years, a switchboard designed and constructed by DaRa Switchboards today is guaranteed to meet the latest requirements of any industry.

Every department of DaRa Switchboards operates from within the same site, providing greater control and efficiency in delivering projects on-time and within budget.
