Hi, Just wondering if anybody knows what the proper name for a metal back box with a single and double space in one complete box is called, and who makes it. Many Thanks. :eek:

Various - back box, metal clad what you want really and made by seveal. Usually find with the cheaper versions the threads are rubbish just bear that in mind.

Thanks for replies. I have used them before, just wondered if there was a porper name, but obviously not. Must be one of those things you just say to the wholesaler "you know one of them boxes with a double and single in one box" :-D

I've never seen a double and single in one box before only two singles. Is there such a box with three doubles available as when I'm doing the TV area of a lounge getting three doubles next to each other, exactly the same height and level is a pain in the ar5e?!

no lugs in the middle , that's a triple skt box , no good for fitting 3 different units to .,,, what were looking for is something like a duel box , but able to accept another unit > 1 spare , 1 single skt . 1 tv point , all in the one long box , but i don't think the exist

cheers

you can get interconnecting ones made by click . and as a tv is usually in a corner i put one on one side of the wall and two on the other makes it a bit easier and still looks fine plus when the telly is there you cant usually see them.

Alternatively you could use three sperate single boxes and connect them together using a coupler & male bush, making them one unit.
