wireing wall lights


Postby gdh82 » Mon Apr 14, 2008 7:57 pm

hi im looking to put two wall lights up this week before i paper the wall as obviously i want to hide the wires.
i have a fairly good idea what to do but would like someone just to go over it.
i have a double socket close to the wall where i want to put the light.

cheers

personally i would rewire back to mains board and form a new separate circuit.
however if socket is on the ring ( presume u have checked 4
continuity of conductors to prove ring ) then a spur ,fused
preferably with neon can be added to ring main ( still being kept
on the ring ) . on the load side 1.5 LIGHTING CABLE , can be run to feed the wall lights. i would recommend a 3 amp fuse in the spur
get a electrician to check over your work
