Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product at a good price Excellent, sturdy outdoor socket. A doddle to install even for a doddery old DIYer like me. No idea about "Reliability" or longevity, as it was only installed a couple of days ago, but it looks good to me.

Can 3 core/2.5mm SWA cable be glanded off to this product and what glanding kit would you recommend

Asked by: wSemaj
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The terminals in this (weatherproof) BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket will certainly accept 2.5mm² cores, so you would simply need an appropriately IP rated gland that will accept the overall cable dimension and fit the knockouts (which are 20mm diameter).

Can I draw 13A from each socket at the same time? Or is the 13A split between the two sockets.

Asked by: CallRJ
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The metalwork in this (weatherptoof) BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket is capable of carrying 26A easily, so the main concern would have to be whether the capacity of the incoming cabling and protective device (MCB/fuse) for the circuit is high enough for this loading.

Can one of these be used in a big shower room ?

Rather than being hardwired
Asked by: carefulken
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The enclosure used for this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket is rated IP65 (low pressure jets of water from all sides) when closed, so yes it would be OK in a shower room whilst clamped shut.

Asked by: Elec21

What size conduit should I use with this.

What size conduit will fit through the bottom of this box best?
Asked by: AHendy
The pre made holes in these sockets accept a standard 20mm round conduit fitting, either male or female, or any other 20mm round gland such as a flex stuffing gland, or armoured cable gland.
