Lighting Junction Box

Postby Lawrence » Mon May 07, 2007 8:13 am

I need to extend my lighting radial circuit and am a bit confused about what sort of junction box to use - 5A, 20A, 30A....? The circuit is run in 1.5mm cable with a 10A MCB.

Are there any 4 way junction boxes with easy to connect to terminals - the ones I have used are very fiddly to get 4 cables into. I've seen an MK 10A box with double conections at each terminal but am not sure whether 10A is the right size box

As circuit fused at 10 A then must assume that load possible so need to use 10 A min size JB.
The one you saw seems ideal,
