BoxMate

Description

During plastering, wet plaster often finds its way into back boxes and dries into a solid mass that has to be removed. But with BoxMate, digging out plaster is a thing of the past.

BoxMate is a temporary back box cover that keeps plaster out. Thanks to its unique design, BoxMate adapts to minor variations in box size and shape. So BoxMate will stay in place when electricians leave site after first fix, and can be quickly removed when they return to fit the sockets.

Many small electrical businesses have discovered the benefits of BoxMate and are placing repeat orders. Fit-out contractors are discovering that BoxMate can save time for plasterers as well.

BoxMate has received a “Top Product” award from Professional Electrician magazine.

Save time and money! BoxMate costs as little as 4p – 5p per use when re-used several times.

Key Features
  • 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 can be re-used several times.

BoxMate comes in Single Gang and Double Gang versions.

Each size of BoxMate is available in the following pack quantities:

  • Bags of 10 (ideal as a trial pack)
  • Bags of 25 (for occasional users)
  • Cartons of 100 (more economical if you’re working on a large renovation or new build)

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:

AFTER PLASTERING

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.

Re-using BoxMate

BoxMate can be re-used several times. In tests BoxMate has been plastered over and successfully re-used up to six times, which brings the cost per use down to around 4p for the single size (when bought in boxes of 100). We can’t guarantee a set number, because of the variables involved. But if you follow the removal instructions, you should have no problem achieving several uses.
