Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfunny Practical Joke The description states 'Mounting box for quadruple plates.' Unfortunately after having this plastered into my new extension I find that it is impossible to have two double outlets be it power or modular plates for network/aerial outlets attached (all bought from Screwfix) because 1 plate completely fills the lateral space between the two outlets. Probably the only factor to consider when designing this product would be the spacing between outlets? I'm now going to have to go away and make a wooden backplate to sit on top of this abomination that I can actually screw the outlets into. Not the best use of my time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Caution for looks AND function The backbox is well constructed and well suited for its purpose. However, the metal faceplates (the only ones Screwfix stock) make the whole thing look cheap with the white modules and blanking plates. If only Screwfix stocked the white moulded facias to go with the euro modules. Not very sensible product choice for a new range.

Please confirm that this box is intended to be installed into a 100mm thick breeze block. I was under the impression that electrical installations were not supposed to be more than one third of the depth of the wall or is that just for the conduit?

Also in light of the size of the hole required could this cause the wall above to crack?
Asked by: Fuzzyphil
Hi Fuzzyphil Yes you are right. With reference to Building Regs Part A 1/2 para 2C30 states:- vertical chases maximum depth 1/3 of wall thickness. Horizontal chases maximum chase depth 1/6 of wall thickness, so box depth will be a maximum of 1/3

Is it safe to fit this back box (50mm deep) into a breeze block wall

The block wall is made of 100mm thick breeze blocks which have been rendered and plastered.
Asked by: Fuzzyphil
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Yes, it is completely safe to install this metal knock-out box into an appropriately sized void in breeze block.
