Hi guys I have been asked to add a spur to feed an extraction hood in a friends kitchen. Their is a double socket available to take a 13amp FSpur from.

I have made a quick drawing here:


The bit in red is what I am wanting to do. Can anyone tell me if this is within regulations? I will take a 2.5mm2 cable vertically from socket to the spur (Red Square) and then take a 1.5mm2 cable horizontally into the void behing the decorative chimney. Obviously the wires will be buried and capped before been filled.

By keeping to the vertical and horizontal rule would this be an acceptable way of powering the hood.

Also in terms of connecting the 1.5 to the hood flex, can I just use a terminal block enclosed in a chocbox?

Thanks very much
