Reliable modular switchboards built by specialists to meet your exact needs

At DaRa, we specialise in designing and manufacturing switchboards that are reliable, and designed to ensure compliance with the latest switchboard standards.

We also understand that every switchboard is unique, so rather than offer a one-size-fits-all solution, we’ve developed a system of modular switchboards that last up to 25 years, and can be adapted to meet your exact needs.

If you’re looking for a high-quality modular electrical switch board for your business, the specialists here at DaRa will custom-design and manufacture a high quality and reliable switchboard for you on time, and to budget.

Rising above our competitors with modular switch boards and enclosures for every application

Unlike some of our competitors who rely or focus on one type of construction, the forward-thinking team at DaRa have come up with a range of modular switch board enclosures to ensure the best solution and product to meet both your needs, and your budget.

To do this, we use three main enclosure types to construct our modular switchboards:

  1. Eeaton Xenergy
  2. Legrand XL3
  3. CUBIC
  4. Elsteel

We construct our modular switchboards for any form of separation, from Form 1 which has no separation at all, to Form 4B, which is designed with separation of busbars and all functional units, alongside a partition of all outgoing terminals.

Constructing our modular electrical switches is an interactive process

Whether we’re constructing a motor control centre (MCC) or a mains switchboard (MSB), all our custom switchboard designs are achieved via active communication, not only between the teams here at DaRa, but with you, our customer.

We pride ourselves on our customer relations, as giving you the product you need is key to the success of our business.

From order to delivery: how your DaRa modular switchboard is made

Upon receipt of your order, our innovative design engineers start putting the modular design together based on your requirements. We consider everything from cable size, cable entry direction and switch room size restrictions to your supply authority.

We then use 2D and 3D design tools to accurately draft the most beneficial and efficient modular switchboard design for you, which is then sent to you for approval.

At this point, you’ll be allocated a project manager who will oversee the entire manufacturing process and ensure that the finished product meets your specifications. Prior to delivery, it will be tested and go through QA to guarantee the DaRa standard.

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: Eaton xEenergy,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.
