Outdoor brick socket?

Recommended Posts

Is there such a product that is basically a double socket that fits perfectly into a brick slot?

So the box is flush rather that sticking out?

Is this for external use or an internal brick feature?

Round Lewden sockets maybe? You could core drill the brick to go around it? Take into account mortar bed above and below the brick to gain height?

Might be a bit of a challenge as usually the cover goes down over the plug and cable to give it water protection. If the face of the cover was flush how would the cable come out?

I bought standard outdoor sockets and let them back into the brick as far as possible, but you still end up with about 30mm + sticking out of the wall to allow for the front to hang up, cable access etc

Yes this is for external use but i don't like the bulky standard outdoor sockets that would stick right out on the brick wall surface.

 

@Roundtuit That makes a lot of sense, at least that would get rid of some that bulk. I don't mind them sticking out a little bit.

For the flash people out there, the Lewden offering could be in a box made from cement board and covered i sacrificial brick slips, which could be 'dismantled' if the socket ever failed.

And they say I complicate stuff! 😂

 

3D print a plastic back box with no stub and a 20mm rear entry hole!

Drill a round hole with a diamond grit tipped hole saw:

Looks to as if you will have to go head first into the column, not much room.

A gate partly open can always be nudged a bit more 😉
