Never used them myself but you can get them from here:

Junction Boxes

Not sure if this is the cheapest place though?

Always thought they were a bit over priced personally?

These are supposed to be the answer to the inaccessible joints under floors/voids scenario.

Havent used them yet and to be honest, havent even seen them in my local wholesalers yet.

Probably due to price at the moment.
 
I used both the Maintenance Free and downlighter JB on a refurb last Summer. I found both are easy to install and great time savers. One note of caution though with the Maintenance free JB is to double check that the conductor is fully inserted and thus connected into the terminal/clamp. The insulating housing obscures the terminal (for obvious reasons) so it's not immediately obvious that the conductor may not be caught in the terminal.

CAUTION! Ashley 100 is not maintenance free! Any connector with screw fixings is NOT maintenance free. Think about it. How often have you opened a light switch cover (after a few years) and found the screws to be tight?

I use these Ashley JBs regularly though whenever possible I still keep them accessible. WAGO are also good, but the 20A Ashley is all set up for 4-cable terminations so a bit less fiddley for eg lighting junctions, especially where you're adding a 3-core extractor off the bathroom light where you'd end up with four cables shoved into the rose. Very neat and tidy.
