It’s a problem familiar to electricians everywhere — during plastering, wet plaster finds its way into back boxes and dries into a solid mass that the electrician has to remove. But with BoxMate, digging out plaster becomes a thing of the past.
BoxMate is a temporary back box cover that keeps plaster out. Thanks to its registered, patent-pending design, BoxMate can adapt to minor variations in box size and shape. So BoxMate will stay in place when you leave site after first fix, and can be quickly removed when you return to fit the cover plates.
Instead of putting up with this …
… far better to work with this:
Save time and money!
Order by selecting from Type/ Quantity/ Qty options below.
- Top tabs compress or deflect to accommodate variations in box height
- Material compresses sideways to accommodate variations in box width
- If the fit is very tight, the central tab can be opened before fitting to allow the BoxMate to compress even more. The tab can then be pushed back into place after the BoxMate has been fitted.
BoxMate comes in Single Gang and Double Gang versions.
Each size of BoxMate is available in the following pack quantities:
- Bags of 25
- Cartons of 100
Fitting BoxMate is simple.
Ensure cables are coiled up and tucked into the back of the box:
Rest the bottom edge of BoxMate on the bottom edge of the installed box:
Use both thumbs to press the top edge home. Make sure the BoxMate is pushed fully into the box and rests against the fixing lugs:
There is likely to be a skin of plaster on part of the face of the BoxMate. This can easily be removed with a few taps from a small hammer or a screwdriver handle:
Just push in the central door, hook your finger inside, and pull out the BoxMate:
... and the box is ready for wiring.
