Right it's hard to explain but I'm doing a job for my step dad who has a haulage company and does a lot of work with reefer containers (a container with a fridge) they have a 3P+E socket on them so I ordered 2 x 32a GE 3P+E isolators with sockets but when I went to fit them the sockets are slightly different, after sum research I found some 3P+E 3h socked aka reefer sockets but at the wholesalers they are £50 each for the panel mount ones, any one know where to get these cheaper I want the panel mount ones as I can just swap the socket on the isolator enclosure.
Here's a pic of the plug on the containers

Seams a bit of a silly response I wounded y people don't bother posting on here much I've helped a few people out and I haven't just turned up asking silly questions I wanted to know if any one knew where stocked them or some where cheaper to buy,
I don't feel the need for the silly reply

Sourcing Mennekes stock in the UK appears difficult and pricey. Gewiss and Lewden are probably your best bet and are available from most electrical wholesalers, but Reefer stock will probably be to order. Richard has kindly posted links above. A Commercial/Industrial Ships Chandler might have Reefer stock on the shelf.

Thanks to mad sparky and Richard burns I'll have a look CEF have quoted £66 inc vat and delivery for two of these and they are lewden so I think I'll just have to pay as you said its an order only kind of item they are a bit rare thanks for the input tho

@ richard burns thanks for the help but the one on ebay is a standard socket with the earth p[in at the 6H position if you look at the pic the earth pin is 90deg to the right not at the top (inline with the lug) where they normaly are this is why thate are a pain to get hold of 3p+E sockets are bad enugh to get hold of with out it being in a different position Thank You for your help any way

if you compare this "normal" 3P+E 32amp 6h socket to the 32a 3p+E 3h plug i posted everyone might understand a bit better
