Can garden accessories, (e.g. garden lighting), be left permanently plugged into the weatherproof socket?

Asked by: Ianw2016
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The Storm weatherproof range, of which this socket is a part, is designed to be outdoors constantly and is IP rated with the lid closed whether there is a lead plugged in or not. Therefore if your lighting (or other accessories) are suitable to be left outdoors permanently then they can stay plugged into this socket without any problems being caused.

breaker amp? run as single circuit from main distribution board

Anyone suggest breaker amp for radial feed to this type of socket. Looking to fit 16 amp mcb just wanted to clarify if this is suitable. Cheers
Asked by: d1yelectrical
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket could conceivably cope with two devices each drawing a maximum 13A (3,120W each) through the circuits it is possible that you would need a breaker rated to cope with at least 26A. However, the carrying capacity of your wiring would also need to be considered as the breaker is strictly speaking for the protection of the wiring to prevent it being overloaded. If you are uncertain then you would be best advised to consult a local electrician whom will know what cable ratings are and what breakers to use in a given situation, and will also be familiar with local authority interpretations of the applicable rules and regulations.

What type of gland connector do I need for using thes with a 10mm armoured cable?

Asked by: TallBee
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The enclosures in this range come with pre-formed 20mm diameter push-outs. Any 20mm SWA gland should be compatible with these holes.

Does this require a wire armoured cable to be 18th edition compliant, or would t&e suffice

This is for a charging point for a hybrid car.
Asked by: Jamb0Stu
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Steel Wire Armoured (SWA) cable is a requirement where the cable will be installed in a position where it is at risk of being cut accidentally, for installations where this is not a risk twin and Earth cable will be sufficient.

Can I use a circuit breaker plug directly into the socket?

Asked by: Vixx
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Due to the lid and surrounding enclosure, which need to be present and closed together to maintain the IP rating in wet conditions, you will not be able to fit anything larger than a standard 13A UK plug into the socket.

What is the maximum power rating for this socket?

The specs say "Amp Rating 13A", but "Power Output 240W", which cannot be right. I want to plug in a 2kW heater, but would like to know what the maximum draw is (13 amps?).
Asked by: MikeDIY82
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. As each socket is capable of outputting 13A or 3,120W the total output for the product should be 6,240W.
