0 reviews Write a review
A narrow, 1  gang, steel mounting box to use with our architrave style electrical switches. Also useful when installing traditional lights with a flush fitting back plate where you need a surface mounted box to hide the wiring. Use this with a Reducer Lid to give you more space behind your light’s backplate.

In order to retain the classic look of a traditional wall light, many of our designs have a flush fitting back plate enabling them to sit neatly up against the wall. However, in order to achieve this, the plastic connector box will need to be housed within a cavity in the wall as there is physically no room within the light fitting itself.

This means that if you do not already have such a cavity, you need to consult a qualified electrician about fitting a mounting box into your wall. This is generally not a problem if you have plasterboard walls but may be more difficult if they are solid brick or lath and plaster. We supply a range of mounting boxes in different sizes for our switches and sockets but suggest that for wall lights you consider this Architrave Box a Reducer Lid as the smallest and neatest solution for non-cavity installation.
