    Rotary Isolator that takes 2x16mm?

    Does anyone know of a rotary islotaor, weatherproof, that'll take 2 x 16mm incomers? I've got long runs out to parking bollards so they've had to size up the cable for volt drop. I could do it with a street light cutout but it wouldn't allow them easily isolate it. Many thanks for any help.
