Rated 5 out of 5 by Very sturdy and easy to fit Very quick and easy to install, appears to be very sturdy 26 Nov 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Recommended but pricey Bought this to use as a spur on an external wall, simple to fit and satisfies what it has been bought for but I personally think it's expensive for what it is. As screwfix is local it was purchased without really shopping around for a cheaper option. 26 Nov 2015

Answer: 
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

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The back-box section of the weatherproof enclosure has knock-outs on all sides which are 20mm in diameter immediately but can be drilled out to 25mm if needed.
For SWA cable you would simply need to use an appropriate gland to anchor it to the enclosure in an appropriately sized hole.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The rating of the breaker required will depend upon the possible maximum load you might put through the socket.
If you have any intention of connecting two 13A devices then a 16A breaker will trip due to overload.
For 2.5mm diameter of cable the maximum breaker rating should be 20A, so if you are going to draw more power you should consider increasing to 4mm cable and a 32A breaker to avoid overloads or nuisance tripping.

Answer: 
As long as the power circuit to which the sockets are connected is not overloaded (by any connected devices) there is no problem with wiring additional weatherproof RCD protected double sockets to an existing unit.
