The IEE Wiring Regulations state that terminals shall not be subject to undue stress,when taking the weight of cables or fittings. Currently a high proportion of Junction Boxes are installed behind Downlighters or decorative light fittings, where moving the Junction Box in to position after wiring could cause stress on the terminations.
with the Hager J501 Junction Box, these obstacles can be overcome as the J501 can provide a quick and easy means of connecting fixed wiring to flexible cables of downlighter fittings.
This is based on 3 main benefits:
1. Easy to use 2. Wide application suitability 3. Compliance with latest regulations
The lid wraps around to fit snugly in the hand during termination and cabling
The lid wraps around on a hinge to snap shut prior to installation
The clamps secure cables in place.
Cable clamps can be reversed for single or double cable entry.
A three-plate terminal style is logical and easy to follow
Has rear holes for fixing to the wall if needed
The terminals are on one side to maximise cabling space.
