No need to use your noggin

scolmore1Scolmore has added StudBox® – a universal first fix electrical back-box system for dry lining applications – to its CLICK® Essentials range.

It replaces the time-consuming practice of installing metal back boxes into stud walls attached to timber noggins, and will typically reduce installation time from five minutes to 30 seconds.

Plasterboard marking points feature on the corners of each StudBox® cavity, providing the position to cut out, without the need for measuring.

The StudBox® range includes 1 Gang (120mm – 600mm centres), 2 Gang (130mm – 600mm centres) and the Universal StudBox®

The Universal StudBox® (SB6IN1) has integrally moulded mounting flanges allowing it to be hung between the faces of timber studs with centres between 380 and 450mm in seconds.

The box is 450mm long, so there is no need to measure height from the floor on stud work. With the universal StudBox® marked at height the first screw is inserted and an integral spirit level allows exact alignment ready for the second screw.

The universal StudBox® (380mm – 450mm centres) has one twin and two single cavity boxes, all 35mm deep which gives six possible mounting combinations.

If just a single or twin box is needed just cut the studs off the box cavity not being used and board over them.
