Rated 4 out of 5 by from IP55 Box Good waterproof box, lots of room for extension sockets and timers inside. Found the lid a bit difficult to get tight / waterproof, needed to torque up the screws quite a bit..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fine for the purpose The product is exactly as described, and provides a weatherproof housing for a fair price. Didn't find any issues with the fixings, or the sturdiness of the box, the quality of the product was fine. You do need to drill the cable holes and use grommets, which could be mentioned within the product details as not everyone will have them to hand. All in all, this product is fit for the purpose so would recommend unless you need something that is likely to get impacted and knocked about.

Confirmation on Internal dimensions

Hi, can you confirm the internal height is correct? 135mm external to 90mm internal doesn't seem correct from the photos provided. Thank you.
Asked by: Longleg

Does this box fit over an exsisting outdoor socket?

My outdoor socket had a lid but it's broken off. Can I put this over exsisting socket to keep socket and plugs dry?
Asked by: RogerIW
Hi, did you resolve this issue? Interested to know as same has happened to me!! Just need a new cover/lid to clip onto existing double outdoor socket.

Front of box

Can you tell me if the front of the box is flat or whether it has a curve as I need to mount something on it
Asked by: Paul118
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The lid of this British General IP55 Enclosure Grey 270 x 180 x 135mm is gently curved (for stability/rigidity) as can be seen best in the second image.

Can this be used outside permanently or be used temporarily outside? Thank you in advance.

Asked by: Kcc1218
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This IP55 Enclosure Grey 270 x 180 x 135mm is suitable for permanent installation outside as long as all knocked-out cable entries are suitably glanded and the cover is fitted correctly.

How to remove the 20mm cut outs / knock outs?

Instructions say to use a 20mm cutter, but I’m not sure what that refers to. I ended up using a Stanley knife, but I’m sure there’s a better way - what’s the right tool for the job?
Asked by: Meurig
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. A 20mm cutter is a drill attachment for cutting 20mm diameter circular holes easily, but your solution of a Stanley knife is equally appropriate where a hole cutter is not available.
