In this video we will show you how to install a triple socket box and TV&LAN network socket box in a drywall.


Initially, it is necessary to have the metal bearing structure of the wall and one side of the plasterboard cladding installed.

The flexible pipe meant to hold the electrical switch cables should pass through the specially precut H-openings in the CW profiles. In case of UA profiles, it is necessary to use a cone drill bit for prepping the needed openings for the cables.

Standard distance for horizontal installation of electrical power cables is 30cm under the main ceiling. 

The cables pass along the wall to the desired location of the electrical and date network outlets. The installation height measured from the finished flooring should be from 30 to 50cm, depending on the preferences of the residents.

After placing the cables in the flexible pipe, install the mineral wool insulation and closing the second side of the plasterboard cladding of the wall.

Next step is marking the position of the socket box on the installed plasterboard. Using a hole-saw drill 3 openings with diameter of 67mm - the standard size of a single electrical switch box used in drywall building. Unite the 3 holes into one by cutting through the plasterboard in between them. In the so formed opening, install the socket box and then the electrical outlet and TV&LAN network outlet.
