Another question now comes to my mind, does the cable feeding the
socket need to be in some protective tubing. I plan to run them
vertically to join into an existing ring, (effectively extending the
ring). The socket will be more than 150mm from a corner but cable will
be vertical above socket. Is it still allowable to have vertical
cabling above a socket without additional protection ?. Also I seem to
remember some restrictions apply to "thin walls". Would a shed wall
with outside shiplap, waterproof lining on a 2x2 frame with the MDF
cladding on inside be considered a thin wall. If so what special
protection would be needed to comply with regulations.
Thanks for any help/guidance.
