Putty Pads in Electric Socket Boxes with Close Proximity to Each Other

Back to Latest Updates

As Alec Purdie explains in this short video, with the launch of the putty pad classification report, one of the unique details we have tested is with metal socket boxes. Unlike other manufacturers who typically have an allowance of 200mm, we now have an allowance of a gap of 20mm between two electric socket boxes.

Another unique feature that we have tested is a 5mm gap between the socket box and the last layer of plasterboard.
