Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1-GANG BLANKING PLATE Did the job well,, simple blanking plate, good from screwfix as ever
Date published: 2019-10-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a socket blank plate Purchased to replace an existing squared edged rheostat controller plate that had yellowed (age) and cracked at a screwhole without buying a new controller plate (£). Plastic OK to drill spindle & LED holes so long as you are careful (sharp drill, low drill pressure). 15mm projection from wall tile surface, plastic thickness ~4mm. Note mine didn't have the moulded strengthenening ribs on rear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap, but not poor Quality These are cheap, but definitely not poor quality. The material is not too brittle and can be drilled or cut with a hole saw if required.

What type of plastic is this made of? Is it easily drilled?

I am after a blanking plate that is made of a soft non-brittle plastic so that I can drill holes in it to fit low voltage connectors.
Asked by: Mark9000
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The plate of this British General 1-Gang Blanking Plate White is made from Urea, which is a fairly brittle powdery material so drilling would need to be done slowly with a high-speed drill to avoid causing fracturing. We would also advise taping the surface to allow for a good stable bit position when starting the hole(s) and potentially add strength to the plate to reduce the chances of it splitting.
