Hager has developed a new junction box specifically for the connection between fixed wiring and downlights that, it claims, will ensure more secure terminations and be easier to access for inspection.

The Downlighter junction box is torpedo-shaped to fit through a 58mm diameter hole in the ceiling.

In standard junction boxes, cables are generally not clamped and often exit at different angles, making it hard to push or pull them through the hole without risking damaging or loosening the connections. With the Downlighter junction box, however, all the cables going into the box are securely clamped and they exit from either end.

Cabling space is maximised with all the terminals arranged on one side and the upper wall on the lid hinges through 360º for unrestricted access.
