In my kitchen the walls are of painted plywood screwed to 2"x3"
verticals. I find that the electrical sockets have metal back boxes
of the type normally used in plastered walls. They are firmly screwed
in place to the plywood along their front edges.
Is this dangerous or merely unconventional? In particular, are the
plastic dry-lining back boxes you get these days designed to contain a
fire originating at the socket?
thanks for any suggestions,
