Hi, I want to mount some electrical fittings ( socket and light switch ) onto a stone wall. I want to keep all the stone visible so the fittings will have to be surface mount. 1 I was planning on running the wiring in galvanised conduit as I think that would look best against the stone. The proble I'm having is finding suitable fittings that are not white plastic. Does anyone know if the french fittings will fit into an 2 English back box? Or where I could get suitable french surface fittings?
The use of metal conduit is an absolute No No.
If by "English back box" you mean a metal back box, again an absolute No No.
All trunking and support boxes must be capable of double insulation and metal products will generally fail this test. All the major French manufactures produce a range of surface mounting boxes, in white, they can always be painted before fixing. They also produce fronts (plaques) in a great variety of colours, over twenty at the last count, and textures ( polished metals, leather, wood and more.
