"I needed an adaptable box for a recent outdoor lighting project I was doing, The box design is very well thought out giving you plenty of room inside for cables, but the thing I like the most is that you can remove the conector block to insert the cables, no more standing on your head to see what your doing...! The quality of materials looks very good plus it's IP65 rated so reliability should be good."
"great price. Having the terminal block removable speeds up cable connection, and then having flexibility in where the block can be positioned within the box means a minimum of pushing and tugging to get a tidy fit."
"Nice box for 1.5mm2 armoured termination. The cut-outs were rubbered so easy to take out with Stanley knife. The internal connector block (5 way) was sturdy. If using larger cable (ie 2.5mm2) then I would suggest a larger box."
"The best stuff is never 'cheap'. These boxes are truly excellent. I've been using them for 4yrs now and like: # the rubber entry holes - give swa glands something to 'bite' into to make a waterfproof entry # the external fixing lugs - no holes in the base so a fully watertight box (there are optional internal fixing positions) # the co-molded rubber lip around the lid # fully solid box molding - no molded in holes like chaeper versions # good quality plastic with some flexibility (not hard and brittle) # not sure but the screws might even be stainless - they're certainly good quality.
I was recently able to look at an outdoor installation where I had fitted these boxes over 3 years ago. No signs of any corrosion or water ingress in any boxes. Just a few insects got in through drain holes. Well chuffed.
I've marked these down on value because I think they are pricey at £3.50. Around £3 would be more realistic."
"At first i wasn't sure if this would be up to the job but proved me wrong. Best bit i like about these is the external mounting holes, yes they might be vunerable to vandalism and not look as good but it beats drilling into the corner of a box like with MK and other external boxes, then trying to thread a screw into the hole. Would of been nice to throw a couple of 20mm glands in there too! Good connector block inside but limited to 2 positions to clip it down but still good. Very nice little box and would buy again."
"This box is great - very well made and smart looking. A couple of details missing from the listing: The knockouts for glands are all M20 (I had bought M25 conduit). There are 8 knockouts in total - one in the back, 2 each on 3 of the sides, and 1 on the remaining side. It also includes a connector block with 5 terminals."
"Using for external lighting, adaptable terminal position and soft rubber access ports are ideal as is or with metal or plastic glands. Gives good selection of positions for these. Solid construction. Excellent combination of hard plastic frame and soft plastic trim."
"This is good sturdy product with easy to cut rubber in/outlets, but the fixing lugs are fragile. Be careful not to over tighten the screws when mounting it as you will brake the lug or go right through it."
