I believe there is a minimum height above the floor, but my enquiry is
regarding a brick outbuilding which is just below 30 sq metres and is
exempt from Building Regs.
I would like to put the centreline of the power points about 20cm
above the floor.
Any information or pointers would be much appreciated.
If the outbuilding is to be used as a workshop, then at a 20cm height, the
sockets/plugs could well be prone do damage by kicking, dropping materials
and tools etc.
In my own workshop all the power points and switches are at a minmum of
shoulder-height to prevent such damage - I learnt the hard way after
breaking a plug and getting one hell of a kick off it.
