When people think about electrical work, they think about internal wiring, but a lot of electrical work is done outside now because people like to have the outside of their home brightly lit. They also like to have multiple power outlets on the outside of the home for when they are vacuuming the car or using a power washer to clean the drive. It is always useful to have a pass up it within easy reach when you are working outside, but a little bit of care needs to be taken due to the fact that it rains a lot in the United Kingdom.
One way to keep yourself safe and to protect sensitive equipment is to install a junction box, but when you choose one it needs to be well designed and to have the right performance specifications. Plastic junction boxes are a popular choice and we will look at some of the reasons why.
- They offer a more cost-effective option than that of steel or aluminium junction boxes. They are fit for purpose and they save us a lot of money when we are installing multiple power points around the outside of our home.
- The plastic junction box has built-in knockouts that are fairly easy to remove with a screwdriver. This means that the junction box and conduit installation process a lot easier and much faster.
- They are incredibly tough and durable and can be resistant to denting and the formation from getting hit by other equipment. They are much easier to mount than the metal options for things like poles or when fixing to a wall.
Electrical plastic junction boxes are popular for the above reasons and more. They offer many unique advantages.
