Hello all, I am decorating one of the back upstairs bedrooms. It used to be
the kitchen of the upstairs flat.
I have removed the extracor fan, mains cable and bricked up the hole.
The fan conected to a fused switch which has two twin and earth wires
attahced for the ring mains.
What would be the best way of dealing with it now?
I was thinking of a blanking plate and chocolate block connector inside?
That would depend on the way the cables are laid.
If both legs of the final ring circuit both come from above or below then my
suggestion is perfectly possible.
The ring circiut would use a junction box to remove the cables that go to
the fused spur.
Sorry, I mis-interpreted the sugestion of removing the cables back to the
loft/underfloor as breaking the ring terminating them there. Cutting them
back to a common point underfloor/loft then re-joining with a junction box
is perfectly acceptable.
Depending on where it is I did rather like to "fit a socket" idea best of
all. In my mind you can never have too many sockets as long as they are not
in a dangerous/ unsightly spot.
Ok. Thanks for that ...thought I was missing something there for a moment
Man after my own heart ... I've replaced all my sockets with double sockets
and doubled each room up as I've gone a long with 2 x double sockets behind
the TV (still not enough ... TV, DVD, VHS, Signal Booster, Sky, Freeview Box
... etc etc ... will it never end?)
