Dual accessory boxes

Postby bb700 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 7:27 pm

I`m planning on using dual accessory boxes in the bedrooms . The boxes are 218mm x 68mm ( 1 twin + 1 single ).
Twin socket with co-axial TV outlet . Will there be any reception problems?.
The cables run in opposite directions :-- twin & earth down into ceiling void
& aerial cable vertical to loft.
Is this set-up too close or O.K.

you should not run your co-axial cable along side other electrical cicuits unless seperation of circuits by compartments such conduit or trunking or if the insulation of the co ax is rated at least that of the electrical cable.
