Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality product Installed one of these on an external garage wall, it was letting in water within months and the RCD had gone less than a year later. Replaced it with a standard IP rated socket (as the circuit is already covered by an RCD). These BG sockets may be cheap but the quality of the waterproof seal is garbage. If price is important and the circuit you are installing it on already has RCD protection, use a standard IP rated BG socket. If you must have RCD protection at the socket, splash out and buy an MK masterseal, otherwise you will be replacing it every year if it is exposed to the weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why pay more Are they as bullet proof as a product twice as expensive? Perhaps not. But don't pay more. These do the job and do it well. Also, If you aren't in a hurry, watch for the frequent sales on these too and get an extra bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money This is of robust construction and feels a quality product. Competitively priced compared with other products and provides reassurance with the built in rcd protection.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The RCD protected double socket is a single unit so only has one Live and one Neutral terminal to wire to.
There are also two linked Earth terminals for flexibility, but only one needs to be connected in order for both sockets to be Earthed.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Zone 0 would normally imply submersion, which would require an IP67 rating.
As the enclosure is IP66 rated it is suitable for any area where pressurised jets of water will strike it from any direction or any lighter spray would encounter it
